I think we need to consider who is asking this question:

How Many Tickets Per Draw Are Necessary To Win?

A system seller?

Someone involved in selling tickets?

A casual player?

Someone who has already won a jackpot?

Coin Toss,

In this particular case, try System Seller.

      The military has its war games, so can we, helps to expand the thinking processes.

      At $500. a draw for $52,000. a year, would take twenty years to put away a single million by saving the bet, so maybe some people want to take a crack at winning ten million or more, think of the thread as an intellectual excercise.   Besides, someday we may get to play online with Rupies or other low value currency where 500 tickets can be purchased for 500 pennies.   BobP

      I'd play for rupees. They've been doing alright, recently. Wink

      So has the pula, for that matter. Shocked

      In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
      Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

        The story about the Florida guy with seven minor jackpots spread across several games it appears his main strategy is to play a lot of tickets.  He doesn't wheel so he likely makes up tickets out of numbers he likes and plays them for multiple draws.   BobP

          At least with games like PowerBall and MegaMillions with odds of 1:39 and 1:46 of hitting the bonus number you're guaranteed a win if you play all the bonus numbers with 39 or 46 lines.  If you're are in a pool playing at least 39 or 46 lines or playing that many lines on your own, you should at least cover all the bonus numbers to guarantee a win and reduce your lost to a maximum of $36 or $44.

           * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
