Ronnie, how many powerball lines did you buy for the $212M jackpot? I bought a single line. I played 5 lines on the previous drawing. 1 line will be enough for tomorrow drawing 08/08/2012. I am a big fan of the MADDOG CHALLENGE.

Thanks for your reply Thrifty,

To answer the first question........ I "buy" the same 2 lines on every PB drawing.

    I usually play a single line whenever I play, but I like to play shotgun style sometimes. Hey, you never know.

      Playing quick picks or self picks is all the same to me as long as you win.

          I have one self pick, and one quick pick that took me about 5 years to pick quick.

            I just can't see myself playing every single drawing, although I see players that play a single line quick pick regardless of the jackpot size, and they have won big. I see it like playing the lottery like a lab rat.

            I see myself winning any jackpot over $40 millions. It will allow me to retire in a big way. Some of us love to dream BIG.

              Playing willy nilly, random here and random there? I see it like chasing the wind. I'm sitting Red Dead on the same 2 lines for the past 10 years and I'm not even trying to win.

              If it hits me, it hits me. Thats all.

                Save those two lines Ronnie for a shotgun play and you might win. Are you dreaming big with those Powerball jackpots for $2?

                        In the images, the last 2 red dots on the right side represent the hits achieved in the last two draws I entered this test run (July 31, August 3) and the rest of the red dots are the hits achieved by each particular GAT at the moment it was picked for use. These GATs were picked for this test run because of the hits consistency at the picks they provide in the long run.

                              I need more details.Oh, I see you have not limit to how much you spend when it comes to playing the lottery.

                              From the beginning the dollar amounts were hypothetical but that doesn't change the fact yesterday, five of the 28 numbers lottoarchitect picked were drawn and several others have matched all five numbers recently. Whether or not they played 98,280 combos and won $250,000 is irrelevant because they reduced the possible combos from 3,901,701 to 98,280. They could have used all 28 numbers on 6 lines to get odds of 16,380 to 1 against matching all five numbers compared to the odds of 650,784 to 1 a $6 QP player got. While he odds of 753,480 to 1 against winning the jackpot are still extremely high, that's nothing compared to the odds of 29,285,286 to 1 they would have by purchasing 6 QPs.

                              Any group of 28 numbers has a 1 in 39 chance of being drawn and the object here is to reduce that to 1 in 10 or better. Even if you just played one combo, your odds of hitting the jackpot will be much better whether it's once out of every ten drawings or once out of 39. And the odds can never be worse than buying a QP in any drawing.

                              While other people are discussing how they would spend the winnings, we're actually trying to find better ways to win it.
