I would like to know for those of you that play Powerball, how often do you buy Power Play? I never buy Power Play. I would rather put that extra $1 towards another set of numbers that could win the jackpot.

Gonna win.Big Smile

    I said sometimes. It depends if I like a certain set of numbers.

            I would like to know for those of you that play Powerball, how often do you buy Power Play? I never buy Power Play. I would rather put that extra $1 towards another set of numbers that could win the jackpot.

            Although I never do now, I have in the past.  And it paid off for me  a time or two...but that was it.  The fact is, I am like you.  I would rather put that money towards another set of numbers. 

            Even a quick pick would be a nice switch for me, since I have been going through some sort of drought lately.  Granted, I have been under a tremendous amount of stress, but the numbers just aren't coming to me.  I usually at least think a number is going to come out.  But not lately.  I  can only get one number.  Last night I nailed the 25 and 49 for powerball.  But they were on two different lines.  (useless)  And 54 is always on my tickets --again, on another line.  So powerplay would not be my friend right now., that would only add to my frustration.

            Unless.... do you think buying powerplay adds to the probability of getting a money hit?  That is an interesting question.

              I always buy it..when they had that 10 thingie, I hit the powerball number and got 30.00 for a 2.00 play.

              If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

              You never know when you will get another hit.

                  I hit on one of those too, this year. Real nice, that 10x'er. Cheers

                    I always powerplay b/c I would be so hurt if I hit the 2nd prize and could have won 1mill instead of 200k
