This is more for jackpot games, but whatever your game of choice, all invited to vote.

For option 2, "The jackpot must be high enough to split", I'm referring to group play. Maybe there's enough of you that any jackpot under a certain amiunt wouldn;t even net $1 million, so you wait til it's higher.

Option 5, "The jackpot has to be high enough to excite me", refers to individual play.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    Powerball EVERY drawing since it came to PA, and even before then I drove to West Vagina when the jackpots got big.

      I play Powerball twice a week because even its starting jackpot of $15,000,000 excites me.I also play MegaMillions twice a week because even its starting jackpot of $12,000,000 excites me.Of course I get more excited as the jackpots grow,but $12,000,000 & $15,000,000 jackpots are nothing to sneeze at.

        Nope. I play when my budget allows it. If I have enough money in my lottery playing fund, I will buy a couple tickets, if not, I skip the drawing. The size of the jackpot doesn't matter to me. I don't wait for it to be a certain size, I play depending on my budget.

                    I play every draw, but only because I was foolish to choose a couple sets of numbers a few years ago.

                    If I don't play every time, I'll end up like option #6.

                      I don't want to see my #'s hit and me not have them... thus have to play every time...

                          I know what you mean and that's why I stopped playing "my numbers". With QPs there are no numbers to look at to see how we "would have done".

                            Good idea!  However, after 14 years I can't forget my numbers!  I've done thisBang Head  but I still remember them anyway.

                              I play my numbers on and off.  Sometimes they have hit for smaller prizes....but I have saved more money than I would have won by not playing them every draw.
