I was just wondering if you guys were playing more or less lines w/ or w/o PO since the change. I still play my same 5 lines and an occasional quick pick. trying to focus more on the CT classic lotto.3.2 million ain't bad either. and the odds are better.

    I buy the same...one line. The pool at work buys half as many lines now.

      Less.  With a JP this high, I'd be buying 10 or more per drawing if I could get a $1 ticket.  With the $2 tickets I'm buying 5 or 6.

       

      As soon as this JP is hit my lines will go way down for a couple weeks.

        The same. Just one single QP line. I don't play all the time, I'd say every other drawing.

          Same per week. But overall, I'd liked to cut it there and not buy an extra ticket on a whim -- like heading to the gas station and grabbing some quarters out of the change jar. Feels strange to scrounge up $2 on a whim. Big picture, less lines but not by much. (Granted, this is all one month into the new pricing. Ask me again if we see two more $300m jackpots.)

            The same, one line of my numbers (and don't let me catch you using them, buster!) and one line of QP's.

            Any small wins I buy more QP's with and I always get Powerplay.

                I actually thought I'd be buying less, but I'm buying more. :-(

                        The same. Just one ticket per game for each draw.

                          I don't think it will really change for me.  Last year I had no job and too much time on my hands.  This year I have a job and only buy tickets when I got days off or feel like stopping somewhere on my way home.  Now that I have money adding $1 per game doesn't bother me too much.  I stay varied between PB, MM, and Hoosier Lottery depending on which jackpot is looking good at a particular time.

                            Save the $5 and spend $20 on powerball every month.You increase your chances by playing less often for more lines.You do not have to play every drawing to win a jackpot.

                              But what if that one Saturday you don't play to save some money, and your regularly played numbers come up?

                               

                              You save a few bucks, but possibly lost millions on the first or second prizes.
