NO.

I should have stopped playing long ago then.....

But the fact is, I enjoy it! I love the feeling of.....buying those tickets and......possibly.......winning....a.........Jackpot......... Hyper Hurray! 

yea, its about the dream.also you bought the right to talk about it,however slim the chances.i have known more than one person that talks about winning then jp,then when i ask how many tickets they bought,they would say none, the lottery is for suckers, then i say if you don't have any tickets then just shut up about winning it,i have one ticket and one chance you have zero tickets and zero chances.Bash

    If people are not picking "no" they're lying a bit unless they have hit a nice jackpot..The lottery wasen't made up for everyone to win or there bwould be no lottery..With that said "good luck"..

    Tiggs is right. Did You Know to make a profit in Powerball, you would have matched 4+1 or better. I doubt their is many people with $100(4+0) in their pockets that think they beat the game. I can't see how they could justify the new $2 prize tag besides see the jackpot grow huge and someone not from you state. You have to struck by lightning to win big or  make a profit. I don't know if you guys are making lightnings

      Not one bit. I'm down around $700 highest win on the lottery 5 ball games was $7.. however, I really don't play the 3 and 4 digit as much as I probably should.

        I'm one of the yes votes.

        Red is a high roller to me with his $2 a game.

        Only been playing a few years.  Don't play unless it's over 100M.
        Low output is the only reason I'm in the plus side.

                    LOL, I knew a guy like that too, Cash.

                    He would always say "Someday if I win the lottery I'm gonna do this..."

                    But he never bought a ticket in his life.

                            other then people who play daily 3 or daily 4 for $.50 and hit for $500 a few times your not going to get more than 1% who come out ahead. just like slot machines...they advertise that the payouts are 96% cash back, but only fools fall for that statistic. if you take 1000 people who spend money on slots, and 2 people hit nice size jackpots, they can just average the winnings with the people playing and say its 96% pay back when in reality, its 2 people who made a ton of cash and 998 who lost cash. it the exact same with the lottery. i do play it, so im not judging. i love the fact that you can win life changing money with $1, but people who say they make money off the lottery are either lying or have won the jackpot.
