Sometimes playing the lottery is almost futile. Against the odds set for winning jackpots, one has an extremely thin to extremely none chance of hitting all 6 numbers.For that reason, I don't buy Mega Millions tickets until the jackpot is over 50 million. The Super Lotto jackpot must also equal 50 million, or I'll simply avoid participating. What is your minimum jackpot?

    100 million. 

    And even at that level conditions must be just right.  I would need an extra dollar; the impulse to buy a QP; be standing at a lotto terminal; feel a bit lucky; be half brain dead, just to name a few conditions.

        Oh, I'll take whatever the current jackpot is. Clown

          In Ohio we can play Classic Lotto, MegaMillions and PowerBall games and I usually pick the one with the best odds for the jackpot size but I would be happy to win any one of their jackpots.
