            I WILL BUY A $2 DOLLAR TICKET TO WIN $100 MILLIONS. High lottery jackpots is my thing. 

            http://www.lotterypost.com/news/236022 

            "In Arkansas, lottery officials began offering Mega Millions in 2010, "the first second we could sell them," said Julie Baldridge, director of public affairs and legislative affairs for the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery."

            "Baldridge said offering both Powerball and Mega Millions complement each other, because players tend to gravitate toward the game with the higher jackpot. And sometimes, it'll be tough for them to choose."

            "Two good jackpots, and we're getting two good sets of sales," she said. For instance, Aug. 5 drew $142,000 in gross sales for Mega Millions tickets in Arkansas, for a $99 million jackpot. The next day, for a $180 million Powerball jackpot, the state sold $298,000 in tickets."

            "It's the high jackpot that dictates the play," she said. "It'll draw people who seldom play the lottery."

            "Once the Powerball changes at the beginning of the year, Baldridge expects players' habits to change as well. "What you're going to have is, you're going to hit $100 million jackpots really fast, but it's a different price point, so your $1 price point is going to evaporate in January," she said."

            "It's not that you're going to double your sales," Baldridge added, "but you're going to have more sales."
