I have one set of numbers that I purchase 10 weeks at a time.   Sometimes, I will buy a quick pick that day or the evening before.

    I usually buy mine on Sunday for the week. But I often play Daily 4 extra during the week for $5 or $10 dollars a draw for 3 or 4 draws.

    I just think that game gives me the best odds and chance to win serious money to do damage to some debt.

      I play both the MM and PB so I buy my tickets on Tuesday's and Friday's.  I used to wait until the evening of the draw but we had a thunderstorm and a huge section of the city lost power.  I worried all night that my always, never ever change numbers would hit!!  I won't ever do that again too many things can happen.

        I buy mine every two weeks on payday Friday for the next two weeks.  If the MM or PB jackpots get big enough, I might buy some extra tickets the day of the drawings.

          I buy self picks way ahead of time, and QPs at the last minute.

            I buy my my mega million and classic lotto tickets the morning after I find that my tickets didn't win. so...

            MM: Wednesday for friday's drawing, and saturday for tuesday's drawing. Or randomly throughout the week if I have spare change in my wallet and nothing to do with it.
            Usually all qp except one line of numbers that i've recently started playing.

            Classic: Tuesday, Thursday.. I don't bother on sunday.

            I refuse to buy PB tickets till the MM jackpot is reset.

              "I refuse to buy PB tickets till the MM jackpot is reset." 

              Is there a reason for that. Not trying to get in your business,but just curious thats all.

              My mother and father don't play powerball untill it reached 200 million or more. Heck I don't see a darn thing wrong with winning the reset of 20 million.

              I have already purchased my cash 3 & 4, powerball,megamillions and Tn cash for the week. So I will see how that turns out buying them like that instead of an hour or two before the drawing.

                Yes, there is a reason.
                It's because I don't want to pay more for roughly the same chance at winning a smaller jackpot.

                  I get my routine tix. every tues. on the way home from work at the same store,

                  If I'm buying something special, could be anywhere anytime.
