I'll buy my tickets, go to work, smile and play nice, tell 50 different people where the bread aisle is , because in a store with 5 aisles it can get confusing, explain to 50 other people why I have no control over the price of food, share some laughs with co-workers , come home check my tickets, and discover

THAT I AM 304 MILLION DOLLARS RICHER......hehehehe

    Here's how I see it.

    If you buy a ticket, you're almost certainly not going to be a winner.

    If you don't buy a ticket you're definitely not going to be a winner.

    It's worth a buck or two or ten to me to be in that first group that has almost no chance of winning.

    Why? Cuz I can dream and I think it's fun.

    That's fine. Everyone has to have a few dreams in their life. Nothing wrong with dreaming. Actually, closing my eyes and seeing numbers when I'm between states of wakefullness and the dream world, sometimes i see numbers that have either hit in the past, which i never heeded, dummy me, or have come very close....staright in the p-3....About 6 or 7 years ago i was lying down in bed just relaxing, not trying to sleep, and saw 400 clear as a bell. All I did was ask what the p-3 winner for Florida was going to be that night, and immediately i saw the 400. Well.....the next day 400 came out straight in Michigan, and the following day 400 came in Florida straight.

    On Thursday March 11, 2011, it was about 6 or 7 am and i was starting to wake up in bed, but was pretty heavily involved in the sleeping phase still, and i saw 3 numbers...591. That night 598 came in Florida.

    I hope you hit the JP......?

        I am going to do what I always do when the jackpot is this high. I'll spend my usual 20 dollars for the drawing on the March 25th. And if no one wins, I'll be spending 40 dollars for the March 29th drawing!

        I only play when the cash amount is 100 million and then I spend 20 dollars per-draw! Now when it hits 200 million cash the money I spend goes up to 40 dollars per-draw.

        Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

          Does that mean 60 when it goes over 300?

              Probablt the best thing a lot of people here at LP could do "different for the Big Mega Millions Jackpot" is play more quick picks.

              Ut oh.

              Scared

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  Does that mean 60 when it goes over 300?

                  300 Million cash jackpot, U BET I'LL PLAY 60 DOLLARS!

                   

                  Dang I spend that much and more just for my buy in when playing craps at the casino ($100 at the very least every couple of months) and yes I do win more at times than my buy in amount! Go home with 300 of their money for my 100 dollar buy in!

                      I did do something different today.


                      I bought 5 more tickets using an online number generator then filling the slip with those numbers.  I couldn't access this site properly on my phone so I had to use another website's.  The numbers they gave me were rather odd but I used them anyway because you never know what will be a winner.

                          Well I bought a ticket.  I'm actually starting to get interested in JP games, but I haven't picked my own numbers.  The one time I did - I didn't play and got 4 right lol....  so I'm gonna take my time and carefully pick a set of numbers I like then stick with it.

                          Maybe you should use ESP to get the numbers. That works much better. Because then you could know what the numbers are ahead of time.

                            Now that the MM jackpot has been bumped up to $312M, I may consider buying enough tickets to play all 46 mega balls rather than 20.

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

                              joker17,

                              Thanks for verifying the 'ut oh' in my previous post.

                              I think I'll play n extra ticket with two lines of numbers, the first will be the forbidden 1 2 3 4 5 with 6 as the Mega ball number, not hoping to win with it but using it as a key to generate a QP, messing with the terminal's 'mind' so to speak. 

                              Good Luck all!
