I wish i could win anything on the PB or MM lol,i buy a few tickets here and there and never win anything,i lie somewhat i have won 30 bucks 2 times in the last 5 years on PB but nothing more,any good ideas how to make my own numbers and win at least some money now and again,ive heard that MM is better overall with the odds of winning.

    You might seriously want to consider flying to Blarney Castle Ireland, and give the Blarney Stone a kiss for good luck.

    I've kissed it, and have done alright for myself. Your only investment would be a round trip flight and admission to Blarney Castle.

      When I play I ALWAYS play both the Megaplier and the power play.  But I normally only play after hitting on the 3 or 4 way.

        depends on how much you play, a good start is to not repeat numbers. say you only play $5 a draw

         

        thats 25 numbers out the big barrel. and 5 the pb one.  sure randomise the 25 , and as you get cash for the pb pick 5 diff pb's

        this will maximise your chance of a  return.

        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

          Can't you buy a piece of that Blarney stone for less?

            this is ok upto $22, playing all 55 of the 56 numbers. if you want to play ever PB you will get a garunteed return, of only a few bucks. but you will get a reduced cost. buying all powerballs will be what 35 games, meaning you get to play ea number 3 times, a small wheel might be posible in 35 games.  reduceing your selection of hits . but this way , you will definately get  all 5 numbers  3 times on the 35 tickets, just will you get any on same line is the prob.

             

            and i just realised its $2 a play not $1 so thats $70 , for all 35 powerballs,  but you get the $4 win back as a min, so $66. a draw.

              i did a quick wheel, with 35 games you have 95% chance of getting 2 numbers on 1 line, i know small chance of also the powerball making a $7 win. and an 11% chance  of getting 3 numbers on a laine ea draw. also a 1 in 35 it also having power ball. :(

               

              prob best way to increase yourr odds if spending $66 a draw.

               

              wheel is here

                I play to win the jackpot. I would throw a dollar to my state lotto before I purchase megaplier or powerplay.

                Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
