    Or you could march right back out the door, and pick up the same numbers again with the multiplier.

    If your numbers come in, your way ahead now with two sets of identical tickets.  Wink

      That's brilliant... Why didn't I think of that?  I think I have until 9pm for tonights draw but I don't feel like leaving the house.  It's allright, gonna try not to worry about it.

        Good luck! Just checked your states lotto website, MM tickets can be sold until 10:45 PM. Drawings are at 11:00 PM Tuesdays and Fridays.

          What are the chances of that happening?

            That reminds me, I need to scurry down and get some bonus ball 25 tickets. The multiplier wont help my on the big prize.

              I have to do the same after I make out the play slips.

                  Congratulations, you are in win-win situation now. You either win something or save 5 bucks. 

                   

                  I've counted tickets for the last month on PM and MM and thought how great that in majority of the cases I dind't spend that extra 1/5/10/20/30/40 bucks on multipliers.

                    Yeah, its called gambling.

                    I used to feel that way every time I got home from the race track.

                        what  are the chances of winning on ea of the 5 lines?  best you can hope for is win on 1 line, and lose $4 on the others.

                        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                          I won $10,000 on PB. If I had played the multiplier I would have won $40,000.

                          BUT!

                          The winning ticket was the last of 12 tickets that I played.

                          So if I would have played the multiplier I probably would have played 6 tickets and would have won NOTHING!

                          You are better off play without the multiplier and buy extra tickets with the saved money.

                          Just my opinion.

                              The multiplier doesn't help the JP so why really pay it??
