          Most I ever spent on one drawing was $54. I had just cashed in my 401K. I won $820. Normally I play anywhere from $3 - $9 per drawing.

              they hada  deal once here where for the month you got an extrra 25 game quick pick for every 25 game quick pick you bought.

              so me and a pal went halves in $100 worth. by the end we got enough to buy 1 25 game ticvket, and got the extra, and didnt win on those 2.

              prob should have spent $100 ea draw, but i am a cheap skate

                when the big drawings (mega or powerball) are up to 200 million or more, i have been known to do $100 or more on my own, plus $20 or more for an office pool.  (years ago - i have wised up since then) and my average return rate on $100 worth of a big jackpot tickets is less than 10%.

                those stupid illinois raffle tickets, the first one in particular - i did $200 on, didn't win a single thing.

                  I usually play 1 or 2 dollars a draw on the jackpot games for myself. I buy the tics for a pool at work, usually MM or PB, and I'll buy $10 for each draw, and if we win it's only 3 or 4 dollars. Of course, I hardly ever win anything just playing a dollar, but with the odds the way they are, I can't see spending $10 to maybe win a few bucks back, even though your chances increase with more tics. I play all the jackpot games, so I can't spend $5 or $10 a draw.

                  I am going to start playing $10 on Daily 4 straight once or twice a week to try for $50,000. Odds are 10,000 to 1. Check out the odds to hit even $10,000 on MM or PB.

                  I had been playing Cash 5 but the prize is around 20k to maybe 25k, paramutuel, and odds are 435,897 to 1.

                  I don't worry about breaking even. You will either win more than you play with a nice hit, or you will lose more than you play. Most likely, you will lose more than you play.

                  Only play what you can afford to lose.

                  CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                  A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                    for the big games my usual is $7 (sometimes $9) per draw. When it gets really high (over $100M after taxes), I've been known to double or triple it, depending on my mood.

                    I also will play the raffle style game $20 tickets that happen a couple of times a year. BUT... I think I've learned my lesson with that one, the last one we had (in july i think) it was 'extended' cause they hadnt sold all the tickets the hoped to (supposedly). I had bought our tickets (2 i believe) during the original time slot. if i remember correctly almost all of the winning tickets were numbers purchased during the extension period. so next time i may just wait and see if theres going to be an extension and if so, buy them then.
