Yea, my wife refuses to play the multiplier,

wants the JP or nothing.

Tell playtowin that its ok to accept a smaller prize if she wins one.

    I would not have any regrets winning a smaller prize without the multiplier.

      Already told her the 2nd prize w/o the MP is just enough to burn the mortgage,

       she's OK w/ that.

            I was in complete shock that the jackpot was not won.  This is the first time it's passed $50 million in ages.  Do you all think its due to the fact that the players that it was too easy to win have already won?  I'm trying to wrap my head around this one.  I saw RI had 5+0 so I'm on my way there to buy tickets for the next drawing right now.

            oh geesh...there JJ goes again with his "people are getting smarter" so let's make the lottery harder to win crusade....

            What is so funny is that the winning tickets have been quick picks.......I guess I don't understand how people are getting smarter...Does he mean people are getting smarter by allowing the machines to choose the numbers???

                    I'm glad the PB jackpot is staying small. It keeps all the pikers and sandbaggers on the side lines.

                        Two of the most entertaining things in the forums are people who tell us how they hate quick picks- and then can't wait to buy a raffle ticket, and people who think the lotteries have some fishy stuff going on- and then post where they are going to buy their next ticket.

                        What?

                        Scared

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              I believe since I bought tickets in RI that I can't lose.  I'm sure I'll at least win $4.  I work for a transport service, so getting to far away states to buy tickets is just part of the job.  Mark my words, if I ever hit JP or 5+0, the ticket will be from a coastal state, not Missouri.

                              RI is a HOT place to buy tickets.  That state probably has the highest per capita number of lottery jackpot winners.  I had to deliver a vehicle to Greenwich, CT so RI wasn't much further to go.  Also stopped for tickets in NY, PA, and CT, but I feel RI is the place to definitely buy.
