Because they want a chance at winning PB too.

If you won't part with an extra $2 for a shot at $40 Million, well, I don't know what to tell ya.

All odds aside though, one thing's for sure, if you can't bring yourself to part with that two bucks, you'll have zero chance of winning that $40 Million.

Them's the cold, hard facts.

Ridge, with 50 million you can't move far enough back in the woods the revenuers won't find your still.

Might as well print up maps and put up billboards that read, "You are here."

50 Million means no hogs, rabbit, squirrel, coon or possum within ten miles surrounding your front door.

Do you really want that?

    And hellfire, with that kinda money I'd be slammin' store bought Jack. And don't nobody move or a bird fly on this mountain without me knowin' about it nohow.

    I'm in the catbird seat.

      Since I am retired...any amount would be fine with me...such as -- $100,000.  Every one's financial situation is different: some people have debt; others, don't.

       

      I am retired, no children, and no husband -- and I rent. So, I would just travel, alone, if necessary because the majority of my friends are still working.

      See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

          Is $50M enough?  Of course it is!  Same for the $12 million MM minimum.  Heck, I'd be happy with the $3M NY Lotto minimum, the $1M jackpot from Sweet Million, or the top prize from NY's Take 5 (usually between $60K and $90K, though I'd be disappointed if I had to share it).

          Granted, the larger amounts make it easier to retire and live off your winnings, but I'd be happy to just pay off my debts and have a nice chunk of change left over to put in the bank.

            I sit here marking out my picks for a $130k jackpot; because  it didnt go off last week, and contemplate the 1 in 2.2 mill odds, the 55c purchase price per line. i think is it really worth my $2 entry fee...?

             

            hmm that depends on if i win or not.

            anyhow i  ended up playing 8 lines for $4.30c lol and a $130k jackpot. call me insane. but my vote goes for any Chance is better than no chance.

              Yep, $50m is enough. I played PB Saturday, last Wednesday, and I've got tickets for this Wednesday. (Got my MMs too) I even play the state lotteries like Lotto and the 2-Step. The smaller jackpots are enough to secure my retirement. The larger ones can help my kids relocate here to Texas with me, and help my sisters secure their retirements. 

               

              Life is good like it is, lottery jackpot only makes it easier and better.

                Things got kind of screwed up lately, so I'm in near poverty level money right now.

                But I'm doing pretty well.

                So any win where I could be  flippin in the market again would be great.

                One half says that a super big win would only make me a target.

                The other half says what I could do for other people. I have a passion for energy efficiency and I think that it would be super cool to work with somthing like Habitat and build 100 net zero homes.

                Oh in case I do win, I've found my bug out location.  (I would  build another place here)

                    The real dream is a bit closer to some town.

                    The Montana place would be only if necessary.

                        Yep, more land would be nicer, but its remoteness makes up for it.   Once winter hits you are locked in. So you would really have to be prepared.

                        And no contact if there is a medical emergency.
