Do you still play even though the jackpot for the lottery states are low, like Powerball, and Megamillions or do you still play anyway?

      No, I don't like playing at the starting level or anywhere near it. When it goes way up, then I'll play.

      I guess it's the assumption that it'll just roll over a few times before it hits anyway.

      Just one ticket will do it but I'd rather have my shot in when the JP is over $100,000,000.

          LOLLOL tiggs!! I'll bet you're just waiting for me to see this...LOL!!

          Thanks for putting a smile on my face - my pick 4 straight in SC sure didn't. I'm pressed to decide whether I want to move to Kentucky or SC.

          You don't want to know how many tickets I have on that number straight...

          Blue Thinking

          I'll tell you tiggs, if that was anyone else saying that...they'd be in a heap of trouble. You can say it because we go back..I'm not going to say

          way, way back but back enough. We've got an understanding...that's more than most people can say Thumbs Up

          Good luck to you and plenty of it tonight! Hit my pick 4 tonight in KY...it's 1347.

                  Yes! Money is money, and I'm not going to be greedy. If I don't play when it's small, that may have been the time I was supposed to win it, plus there are less people playing at that time, and that's ok with me. I would think myself a fool, if I said, "No, I'm not going to waste $5 tonight buying tickets, the pot is ONLY 12 MILLION, or 20 MILLION, it's not big enough for me!" !?!?!?!?!?  OMG, I would be SO happy to win it, no matter what size!!!

                    Yep. To me, it doesn't matter how big the jackpot is. I would love to win one of any size.

                      I agree,

                      I play numbers come rain or shine, high or low jackpot.  I'd love for it to hit at 70 million but I would seriously be happy with 7 million.  Since I play my own numbers, I cant pick and chose.  My number can come up with a newly set 7 million and it would set me up something good.

                          I still play. The jackpot is never "small" really. The starting jackpot itself might be small in comparison to the levels that it's capable of reaching, but there's no way I would consider it small. Give me $6,000,000 after taxes aaaaaaawwww man that would be so awesome. That's a ton of money.

                            The reason why I ask is if you think about how much taxes Uncle Sam takes out if you get 20 million that's not enough now is it?  I have heard people who take the lump sum and they have to pay the taxes and every year pay the taxes on that win. Now if you do the math that's not enough to live off of now is it?
                            I remember that young kid hit the powerball last year the one that was over 200 I think and they took out a whopping 34 million in taxes.

                            Can you say ouch!!! Just do the math. I know in Florida we do not have to pay state taxes but dang that's a lot of taxes!!!!
