          You spent nearly 500.00 on that drawing? Jesus people. Do people forget the odds? What a waste of money. Should have taken that to the casino and played blackjack.

            yea, for me that would be 5 trips to the track, but thats why we call it lottery fever,

            when the JP gets up that high.

              I will not play those big jackpot games until they increase lower-tier prize payouts significantly. 

              I will only play big jackpot games if 1) the jackpot is over $200 million and 2) the drawing takes place on a major holiday or my birthday.

              Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

              In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                    i have a formula i use.  here the games dont get to the amounts in america, but 20-30 mill is pretty common.  so i  decided to play $1 for every $5 mill in the pot. so its $30 mill, i get to play $6 of tickets. $50 mill = $10.

                    also i have a night marte of blowing all my money on 1 draw and it not going off and not bbeing in the next one. this kind of meake me keep something in reserve  for an emergency, like  buying a lotto ticvket emergency.

                        People spending this kind of money to win a jackpot that is so spread out across the map that you're sure not to hit. This is why if they cant make more millionaires from larger jackpots then they should increase the smaller tier prizes.Shocked
