The powerball needs to roll only 6 times to reach $100 millions since it rolls $10 millions per drawing.

Yesterday it rolled from $40 millions to $50 millions.Once it gets to $100 millions the jackpot fever will start again.

It is only a matter of time before they create a lottery with a $100 millions starting jackpot, most players are waiting until the powerball jackpot reaches $100 millions to start playing.

4 more rolls of $10 millions for powerball to reach $100 millions  annuity. Powerball can be a better jackpot game if starts at $100 millions.The heavy playing starts at $100 millions annuity, that's when I start playing with a $2 quick pick ticket.

    If everybody waited until the jackpot reaches $100 million before buying one $2 QP, how could the jackpot grow that high in the first place?

    Right now the MM jackpot is higher, the tickets are $1 and the odds against winning are about the same; do the math. The size of the jackpot doesn't change the secondary prizes. your chances against winning the jackpot or anything else. If you want a very slim chance of winning or even the chance to dreaming of winning millions, get a $2 ticket in every drawing and stop being a cheapskate.

      I am buying $1 quick pick ticket for mega millions. You are right, I should buy 2 mega millions Lines instead of 1 Line.Spending $2 on powerball below $100 millions is very hard to do.

      I have to be thankful to all the players that push the powerball jackpot to $100 millions annuity for me to start spending $2. Wouldn't you? Or for that matter to those players that pushed the mega millions jackpot to $72 millions for me to start spending $1 or $2 on it.

        THE THRIFTY WAY TO WINNING A LOTTERY JACKPOT WITH A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT AND THREE PLAYING METHODS.

         

        "The key to winning is buying tickets with the winning numbers on them."

        "It is a system that has never failed - not even once. It has won every single time it has been done." True but,

         

        Playing the lottery more often for more lines= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.

         

        THE SHOTGUN PLAYING METHOD.

         

        HITTING THE TARGET.

         

        when a shotgun is fired all those pellets that are crammed into the cartridge spread out so it's easier to hit the target.

         

         

        "A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT IS VERY IMPORTANT and I urge anyone that plays to have a stop loss limit to protect their large sum of ready gambling money. You should have a stop loss limit to avoid losing too much money on a bad day. While setting up a loss limit is a great idea in theory, there are plenty of gamblers who won't have the will power to stick with these limits. These are the same people who will never make any money or come close to breaking even in gambling. It's definitely hard to stick with loss limits because there is so much temptation to keep gambling no matter which way Lady Luck is sending the money. The better you are at sticking with your loss limits over the long run, the more successful and happy you will be at the end of game play."

         

        THE THREE PLAYING METHODS.

         

        1) PLAYING MORE OFTEN FOR LESS LINES.

         

        2) PLAYING LESS OFTEN FOR MORE LINES.

         

        3) PLAYING LESS OFTEN FOR LESS LINES.

         

        PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE IN LIFE.

         

        WINNING A LOTTERY JACKPOT IS ALL ABOUT PATIENCE. Patience pays when playing the lottery.

         

        A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT IS VERY IMPORTANT to be successful over the long run.

         

        The key to winning a lottery jackpot is BUYING ONE QUICK PICK TICKET with the winning numbers on it.

         

        WHY BUY ONE QUICK PICK TICKET?  "TO HAVE A LOTTERY TICKET IS TO HAVE A TALISMAN OF POSSIBLE WEALTH."

         

        "To have a lottery ticket is to have a talisman of possible wealth that, when held and contemplated, brings immediately to mind the fantasy of wealth and makes it feel much more visceral. There is no equivalent talisman for the possibility of a wealthy aunt, and, hence, the fantasy is far weaker."

        "The “fantasy aid” argument for purchasing a lottery ticket works in light of this very real gain in utiles by comparison to the far more passive fantasizing about one’s wealthy aunt. It isn’t hard to think of other examples of this “talisman effect” in fantasy and memory: physical books are relatively more expensive than ebooks (modulo Amazon’s future-oriented pricing); letters from lovers call to mind more poignant memories than do emails or remembrances; people save chips that are otherwise useless from casinos; etc. It would seem to me that smart, rational people are no less susceptible to the very real utile-increasing effects of talismans. This is a reason to play the lottery: you hold the possibility of riches in your very hand. No hypothetical relatives offer the same pleasure."

              Money, get away.
              Get a good job with good pay and you're okay.
              Money, it's a gas.
              Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.
              New car, caviar, four star daydream,
              Think I'll buy me a football team.

              Money, get back.
              I'm all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack.
              Money, it's a hit.
              Don't give me that do goody good bull<snip>.
              I'm in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
              And I think I need a Lear jet.

              Money, it's a crime.
              Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie.
              Money, so they say
              Is the root of all evil today.
              But if you ask for a raise it's no surprise that they're
              giving none away.

              "HuHuh! I was in the right!"
              "Yes, absolutely in the right!"
              "I certainly was in the right!"
              "You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a
              bruising!"
              "Yeah!"
              "Why does anyone do anything?"
              "I don't know, I was really drunk at the time!"
              "I was just telling him, he couldn't get into number 2. He was asking
              why he wasn't coming up on freely, after I was yelling and
              screaming and telling him why he wasn't coming up on freely.
              It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted the matter out"

                On a warm summer's eve
                On a train bound for nowhere
                I met up with the gambler
                We were both too tired to sleep
                So we took turns a-starin'
                Out the window at the darkness
                The boredom overtook us, he began to speak
                He said, "Son, I've made a life
                Out of readin' people's faces
                Knowin' what the cards were
                By the way they held their eyes
                So if you don't mind my sayin'
                I can see you're out of aces
                For a taste of your whiskey
                I'll give you some advice"
                So I handed him my bottle
                And he drank down my last swallow
                Then he bummed a cigarette
                And asked me for a light
                And the night got deathly quiet
                And his faced lost all expression
                He said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy
                You gotta learn to play it right
                You've got to know when to hold 'em
                Know when to fold 'em
                Know when to walk away
                Know when to run
                You never count your money
                When you're sittin' at the table
                There'll be time enough for countin'
                When the dealin's done
                Every gambler knows
                That the secret to survivin'
                Is knowin' what to throw away
                And knowin' what to keep
                'Cause every hand's a winner
                And every hand's a loser
                And the best that you can hope for
                Is to die in your sleep"
                And when he finished speakin'
                He turned back toward the window
                Crushed out his cigarette
                And faded off to sleep
                And somewhere in the darkness
                The gambler he broke even
                And in his final words
                I found an ace that I could keep
                You've got to know when to hold 'em
                Know when to fold 'em
                Know when to walk away

                There'll be time enough for countin'
                When the dealin's done
                You've got to know when to hold 'em
                Know when to fold 'em
                Know when to walk away
                And know when to run
                You never count your money
                When you're sittin' at the table
                There'll be time enough for countin'
                When the dealin's done

                        On a warm summer's eve
                        On a train bound for nowhere
                        I met up with the gambler
                        We were both too tired to sleep
                        So we took turns a-starin'
                        Out the window at the darkness
                        The boredom overtook us, he began to speak
                        He said, "Son, I've made a life
                        Out of readin' people's faces
                        Knowin' what the cards were
                        By the way they held their eyes
                        So if you don't mind my sayin'
                        I can see you're out of aces
                        For a taste of your whiskey
                        I'll give you some advice"
                        So I handed him my bottle
                        And he drank down my last swallow
                        Then he bummed a cigarette
                        And asked me for a light
                        And the night got deathly quiet
                        And his faced lost all expression
                        He said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy
                        You gotta learn to play it right
                        You've got to know when to hold 'em
                        Know when to fold 'em
                        Know when to walk away
                        Know when to run
                        You never count your money
                        When you're sittin' at the table
                        There'll be time enough for countin'
                        When the dealin's done
                        Every gambler knows
                        That the secret to survivin'
                        Is knowin' what to throw away
                        And knowin' what to keep
                        'Cause every hand's a winner
                        And every hand's a loser
                        And the best that you can hope for
                        Is to die in your sleep"
                        And when he finished speakin'
                        He turned back toward the window
                        Crushed out his cigarette
                        And faded off to sleep
                        And somewhere in the darkness
                        The gambler he broke even
                        And in his final words
                        I found an ace that I could keep
                        You've got to know when to hold 'em
                        Know when to fold 'em
                        Know when to walk away
                        And know when to run
                        You never count your money
                        When you're sittin' at the table

                          "It is a system that has never failed - not even once. It has won every single time it has been done." True but,

                           

                          Playing the lottery more often for more lines= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.

                           

                          THE SHOTGUN PLAYING METHOD.

                           

                          HITTING THE TARGET.

                           

                          when a shotgun is fired all those pellets that are crammed into the cartridge spread out so it's easier to hit the target.

                           

                           

                          "A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT IS VERY IMPORTANT and I urge anyone that plays to have a stop loss limit to protect their large sum of ready gambling money. You should have a stop loss limit to avoid losing too much money on a bad day. While setting up a loss limit is a great idea in theory, there are plenty of gamblers who won't have the will power to stick with these limits. These are the same people who will never make any money or come close to breaking even in gambling. It's definitely hard to stick with loss limits because there is so much temptation to keep gambling no matter which way Lady Luck is sending the money. The better you are at sticking with your loss limits over the long run, the more successful and happy you will be at the end of game play."

                           

                          THE THREE PLAYING METHODS.

                           

                          1) PLAYING MORE OFTEN FOR LESS LINES.

                           

                          2) PLAYING LESS OFTEN FOR MORE LINES.

                           

                          3) PLAYING LESS OFTEN FOR LESS LINES.

                           

                          PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE IN LIFE.

                           

                          WINNING A LOTTERY JACKPOT IS ALL ABOUT PATIENCE. Patience pays when playing the lottery.

                           

                          A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT IS VERY IMPORTANT to be successful over the long run.

                           

                          The key to winning a lottery jackpot is BUYING ONE QUICK PICK TICKET with the winning numbers on it.

                           

                          WHY BUY ONE QUICK PICK TICKET?  "TO HAVE A LOTTERY TICKET IS TO HAVE A TALISMAN OF POSSIBLE WEALTH."

                           

                          "To have a lottery ticket is to have a talisman of possible wealth that, when held and contemplated, brings immediately to mind the fantasy of wealth and makes it feel much more visceral. There is no equivalent talisman for the possibility of a wealthy aunt, and, hence, the fantasy is far weaker."

                          "The “fantasy aid” argument for purchasing a lottery ticket works in light of this very real gain in utiles by comparison to the far more passive fantasizing about one’s wealthy aunt. It isn’t hard to think of other examples of this “talisman effect” in fantasy and memory: physical books are relatively more expensive than ebooks (modulo Amazon’s future-oriented pricing); letters from lovers call to mind more poignant memories than do emails or remembrances; people save chips that are otherwise useless from casinos; etc. It would seem to me that smart, rational people are no less susceptible to the very real utile-increasing effects of talismans. This is a reason to play the lottery: you hold the possibility of riches in your very hand. No hypothetical relatives offer the same pleasure."

                          WINNING.

                          One day I was on the ground
                          When I needed a hand
                          And it couldn't be found
                          I was so far down
                          That I couldn't get up
                          You know and me
                          One day I was one of life's losers
                          Even my friends my accusers
                          And in my head
                          Lost before I begun

                          I had a dream
                          But it turned to dust
                          What I thought was love
                          That must have been lust
                          I was living in style
                          When the walls fell in
                          When I played my hand
                          I looked like a joker
                          Turn around
                          Fate must have woke her
                          'Cause lady luck
                          She was waiting outside the door

                          I'm winning
                          I'm winning
                          I'm winning
                          I'm winning
                          I'm winning
                          And I don't intend on losing again

                          Too bad it belonged to me
                          It was the wrong time
                          And not meant to be
                          It took a long time
                          And I knew for now
                          I can see the day
                          That I bleed for
                          If it's agreed there's a need
                          To play the game
                          And to win again

                          I'm winning
                          I'm winning
                          I'm winning
                          I'm winning
                          I'm winning
                          And I don't intend on losing again
