It won't make any difference to me. I always play the megaplier and powerplay hoping to hit for a million. So when PB changes, I'll still pay $2 for it and $2 for MM. I would hate to hit for $200k or $250k knowing if I had only put up another dollar it would be a million.

CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

    I will not be playing Powerball once the price increases. We have only had Powerball in Florida for 3 years and and the price increases. I never get anything on Powerball with or without Powerplay, so I will only be playing Florida Lottery $1 games such as Lotto, Mega Money and Fantasy 5.

    Guess Who's Back?

      I don't play any game other than the Pick-3 or Pick-4 unless both of the following conditions are met: 1) there is a recordbreaking or near-recordbreaking jackpot and 2) the drawing takes place on New Year's Day, my birthday (Jan. 4), Leap Year Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve.

      I don't play any game other than the Pick-3 or Pick-4 because the smaller prize payouts are, in my opinion, unacceptably low. I will not accept $150 for matching 4 white balls if the odds of winning that prize are 1 in 15,313. I feel that a payout of $150 for odds of 1 in 15,313 is basically highway robbery. In order for me to even REMOTELY consider playing Mega Millions except in the conditions listed above, the payout for matching 4 white balls must be AT LEAST $5000. Unless the payouts for the lower tier prizes approach 25% of the odds (e.g. $250 for 1 in 1000 odds), I will not play Powerball or Mega Millions except under the conditions detailed above.

      Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

      In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

        I will play!

        Show me the money!Drum

        Better investment than shelling out $1,$2,$3,$5,$10 or $20 on a scratcher

          I'll still pay the $2 for a powerball ticket and a dream...
