        It all depends on the odds and the jackpot size. Tuesday night I preferred MegaMillions with odds of 1:176M and a $200M+ jackpot.  After it was hit, I preferred the local Classic Lotto with odds of 1:13M and a $15.2M jackpot.

                  C looks like the best option.

                    Pumpi76,

                    I think "C" would give me the best chance of being a winner so that would be my choice.

                      B is the obvious answer.

                       

                      C would be too addictive and people will waste too much money.

                        It wouldn't matter which one you picked, because the odds to me would pretty much be the same. (a long shot)

                        Then again,it all depends on your greed level. The option "C" appears to allow more people with an opportunity to get a piece of the pie. The economy needs this option.

                          A. is a Pick5/110 + Pick1/70....Cost 1 dollar

                           

                          B. is a Pick5/64 + Pick1/46....Cost 1 dollar

                           

                          C. is a Pick4/35 + Pick1/26....Cost 2 dollars

                           

                          got question....Isn't C what we all strive for....Isn't c what we all dream about..Again don't ask me if is possible or not all i want to know is your choice/opinion...

                            I choose "A" because I am confident I would be among the 3 who would win that big jackpot...then I would practice trickle down economics.  B would be also a decent option in that $20 million could dramatically change or enhance a person's lifestyle, but C stinks.  Sure, more people would win, but that win would not do much to change or enhance a person's lifestyle.  I would take a $20 million (less taxes) lump sum payout over $52,000 a year for 30 years tax free because that $52,000 received in the latter years won't buy as much as the $52,000 could in the early years (inflation).  Ever wonder why you see so many advertisements by companies like peachtree settlements and others looking to offer people receiving annuity payments lump sum buyouts?

                            Also I have heard some nieve jackpot winners say they chose the annuity over the lump sum so that they will have something even if they make stupid mistakes.  Well, the method of payment receipt cannot entirely protect one from that, especially if the stupid mistake involves drug use, foolhardy business decisions, or greedy family members and mooching friends.

                            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                              I'll go with B because $1000 dollars a week right now is a good amount but towards the end of the 30 years the $1000 will probably only buy me a candy bar.
