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.

was thinking along the same lines,

not a reg.PB player but when it gets up there,

 i could spend my pic 6 $ + my MM $  = to $ 3 per draw,

and just skip the 6/49 and the MM at that time.

this way i stay in budget.

    That is one of the best ways of playing to win without spending extra money.Saving lottery lines to play big is a great way of increasing your chances of winning.

    When I go to lottery retailers to spend $20 on lottery tickets, they think that I might be spending too much, but they did not see me going to their store everyday because I was saving those $20 for 4 weeks or 2 months in order to spend $20 on one shot.

        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.

         

        Don't get me wrong, I'm still in agreement to be more Thrifty.     Thumbs Up

        yes, i would only do that  w/QPs
