So i sold a few toys that were not needed anymore and now have 150 dollars. The money is extra and i wanted to get ur opinion on whether or not i should play it all? If so how should i play it and should i play mega or super lotto. I live in cali.

    I'd play Mega Millions 2 tickets per game for 75 games. That way you have stretched your $150 and given yourself a chance to win some money. It makes more sense to play Super Lotto but the second prize is very low Yawn

    That money's gone fo ever

      Good point. I am just tired of playing 5 dollars. I see those people who go in together with 150 or more and win so i figured well why not just play mine alone lol. Should i QP it all or wheel it?

            whoa! you thought I meant all at once? lol would you would be willing to do that?! I meant 37 weeks of plays of $4 each. I've never bought more than $40 for a single game. You could wheel it. Good luck Thumbs Up

                    Here's one way to play it.  Buy ten tickets of the same number. If you win you get it all. But on the other hand, if several other people had the winning numbers you'd have ten shares of the total and they only have one share each. Bigger payoff. In Black Jack they would call it insurance. In Powerball do they call it Stupid??

                        Buy 10 mega tickets or 5.  All the numbers that you see twice from the different tickets play those on the 11th ticket or the 6.  Whenever i buy lines i've noticed that you always get one or 2 hits from the tickets and usually it's the ones you see more than once but the singles are hits as well.  Play the numbers on those tickets.

                          Don't play at all. Buy what you really need for yourself.

                            I'd save half and go big when one of the big jp games gets really high - like half a billion or more.

                            I'd use the other half to try out some games I've never played, and maybe buy a few extra here or there on my regular games.

                              I'd kick back with a bottle o' Jack.

                              Do some drinkin' n' thinkin'.

                              Don't wanna rush into these things, ya know.

                              Wouldn't be prudent.
