    I know I won't stop, no matter how much I win.

    It's the thrill of the win that matters.

    It's the same thing that causes addictions to any substance.

    I enjoy the games.

    Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

    Come on Jackpot!!!

          That's a really good question because the huge jackpot winners probably continue to gamble. Personally with $10 million, I'll probably gamble less, but bet more when I do.

          Wonder what the dollar for a dream players will say.

            $1M would be enough for me to never look at a lottery ticket ever again.

                I don't think I would stop playing but my enthusiasm for playing would wane a bit.

                Play to win!

                    No why stop?? You can really amp it up if you win alot....I mean control yourself...but I think if I won like the base powerball jackpot....I'd love to go in a quick stop and buy a whole roll of $20 scratch-offs...or go to vegas and play just enough and long enough to get some really good comps...like show tickets or room upgrades...

                        That would be fun, or put 100 on one number straight.
