    Stay the course.

    Don't over react.

    Wouldn't be prudent.

    I Agree!

      Okay, here's my Eric Clapton version of Power Ball...Cocaine style. Enjoy responsibly.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      When you want that big pot, and you give it all you've got...Power Ball.

      If you're playin' so much, and you skip bills and such...Power Ball.

      It's alright (3X's)...Power Ball.


      When that pot get's so high and you start to wonder why...Power Ball.

      Only two people win and it oughtta be a sin...Power Ball.

      It's alright (3Xs)...Power Ball


      If you're rackin' your brain, well the odds stay the same...Power Ball.

      Whether self or Quick Pick, either one can make you rich...Power Ball.

      It's alright (3X's)...Power Ball.


      So much time on six numbers always makes me wonder...Power Ball.

      Just leaves me in awe, because of the pre-draws...Power Ball.

      It's alright (3X's)...Power Ball!!!

          I don't really play the PB as much any more and now that the JP is over $100 million, I haven't bought any more tickets.  I prefer to wait until the MM gets over $100 million.  Still not hip to the price increase on the PB.  When the MM does get up there I will buy an extra few dollars worth, but not much.

                    I only play when the Jackpots are really high, and depending on the game, I'll spend anywhere from $1 to $5-10.  On the occasional, rare, maybe once a year event, I'll spend 20 on one draw.

                     

                    My total expenditures through the year on jackpot games is probably around 100 dollars, because I don't specifically budget it out.  If I see a big jackpot, and I'm out, I spend a dollar.  Otherwise, I usually don't.

                        Paarball?  That's a bit before my time, but I do remember playing Carsonball.
