If you won a big jackpot or even the base amount jackpot....would you still play the lottery??? I might just play PB or MM when it surpasses the amount that I'd won...but other than that I'd probaly buy alot of scratch-offs....I kinda like knowing instanteously if i've won or lost....but yeah playing scratch-off a bunch at a time more than the 3 or 4 at a time that I buy when I buy now...I'd love to just buy maybe a whole roll every now and again and not put a major dent in my pocket...

    Just this A.M. I was thinking of putting up the same basic ?

    I would probably take a breather, but I'm not sure I'd quit, been playing 40 years, quite a habit.

    The thing is you know the odds are long, and hitting big twice is incalculable,

    OTOH now you can afford so much more, so why not contribute to the JP ?

      If I wont the jackpot (big or small).................. I would stop playing the lottery because it is bothersome checking online to see if you won......I think if I won that much money I would enjoy it and not waste time buying more tickets............there's a guy on here who won 2nd prize in a major lottery game...........................what are the chances he'll win the jackpot? By the way I like your writing style..............keep it up................................................

        Another nice thread B2B

         

        I agree with Haymaker.

         

        I would want to hit it twice so people can look at me like an alien from outter space. Here's the man who finally has a REAL system that works.

         

        Everyone would want to interview me. Dang if CNN refers to that clown who won the Florida Fantasy Five and Play 4 Twice as an "expert", what would they call me?

          I would keep playing it.  Getting out to get my tickets gives me a reason to take a walk several times a week.  But I wouldn't keep it if I won -- I'd give the ticket to my favorite charity which could cash it without paying taxes.

                  Personally, I think that it would be the time to play only the "Big Boy" scratch tickets since money wouldn't be an object. The odds would be reasonably better, and, the overall return over time will crush PB and MM's every time. It's extremely difficult to even get the lowest payout on those games...while high dollar scratch-offs are quick to return $10-$20 if not more. Hands down way to go for me... helps to "spread the luck around" in this aspect.

                   

                  L.L.

                  Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                        Yes I would keep playing.  I want to win the MM and PB twice.

                         

                        Because after that happens I will get to hear about how unfair it is and I will just laugh hysterically from my beach in Hawaii.

                              yes, i would still play as i do now in every state i travel to....Banana

                              maybe would buy more of the bigger scratch tickets though.
