I play PB - but I'm not 'after' the jackpot - I'm 'after' another 5x5.

    Mega Million, Fantasy 5, classic 47, Raffles, and Keno depending on Jackpots and whatever game is due for an allocated win in my area.

      I'm after the BIG one through and through.  If it isn't at least several million, it isn't worth throwing my money at.  If I'm going to win, I want it to make a DIFFERENCE in my life.

      Mostly I wait until MM gets up to a cash option of $25 to $50 million.  I'd rather buy five tickets when the jackpot is higher than one each week when the jackpot is lower.  However, if the MM jackpot hasn't been high long enough to encourage me to play often and my lottery funds are burning a hole in my pocket, I buy state Lotto tickets instead.  This week, for example the state lotto jackpot is $9.4 million.  If I were to play this week I'd rather buy tickets for that with odds of 1 in 7 million than tickets for MM with a jackpot of $12 million and odds of 1 in 175 million!  I never buy state lotto tickets unless the jackpot is at least $5 million.
