Anyone planning on 'loading up' on PB before the changes?

Since there are only two PB drawings before the new rules and $2 tickets, is anyone going to play a little heavier than usual?

Also, nationwide do you think a lot of people will?

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

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.

    Not me.

    I'd bet some of the players that don't play the Powerplay will though.

      I'm still playing 1 line with powerplay. When it changes I'll play the 1 line without powerplay.

      I don't think most people will play heavier. I don't think they did last night, the jackpot didn't increase very much.

          I only play (1) card on the Powerball game with the PowerPlay.  Don't plan on changing anything except cost.  From $10. to $15 per draw.  Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL in this New Year.

            No. With the limited amount I play PowerBall, I'll continue to play the same. No big deal. Extra $1 for a bigger jackpot doesn't seem bad

              I plan to continue playing PowerBall as I have normally played until its jackpot is won or its price goes up, which ever one comes first.

                So when the price goes to $2 you won't play it anymore?

                      I will play like normal. A couple tickets here and there when I can afford them.

                          I will be playing less. I'll buy $1 until the price officially goes up. Then I'll wait until the prizes are high.

                            For the most part, I only really play Powerball when the jackpot gets high.

                             

                            It is possible that I could play heavier after the price increase - if the jackpots are good, I'll probably pick up a ticket more often than usual.  Even if the ticket does cost $2.

                              Cutting back here. Use to spend $5 on 50 Mil and higher on the Pwrbl. Even talked with the people in our purchase group. All agreed that twice the cost will be half as many purchased.... until the payout exceeds 150 Mil
