I know that I have spent more on this drawing than I usually do, just curious to see if anyone else has.

    I took $300 to Georgia and spent it all. This was my first time playing because we have Powerball in Florida.

      Playing the same amount I always do.  My gamblin' friends tell me I am boring that way.  :)  But I do note that I am the only one of my crew who continually has electricity and running water and all the bills up to date.  I wonder if there is an association there?

        Only $3 on today's draw. Truth is, I got the fever last Tuesday, went in with $20+ and felt really, really dumb the next morning with goose eggs.

            I usually spend $1. I bought a dozen and my wife bought one making a bakers dozen.

                    I usually buy $2 or $3.  Stopped off at a couple stores on my walks yesterday afternoon and this morning, and when I got home they counted up to $19.  More than enough to win. 

                     

                    Good luck everyone!

                          I actually spent $10 less on this draw than the last one.  First one I spent $120.  But I'm using more self picks this time.

                            In the last draw and this one, $4 more. It sure would be nice getting the winning ticket with less than $5 when people are spending thousands... I hope that's whoever wins (and I'm sure the lottery too, what with the "a dollar and a dream" thing).

                              I took $300 to Georgia and spent it all. This was my first time playing because we have Powerball in Florida.

                              The $300 also covers Tuesday. I bought advance play just in case it rolled over Friday. When I was in Georgia the jackpot was $500 million so there was a chance of a rollover. At $640 million the jackpot will be won tonight.
