No matter what I'd still play at the same amount I do now. The only difference is if I won the jackpot a second time - and I think I've said this on here before - I would anonymously gift it to someone.

      If I were to win big, I'd move out of the US and go to a country that understands online gambling is a good idea, and gamble that way.

          I wouldn't have time to cook as I'd be playing 24+ tables at a time, but someone else would sure be cooking me tater tots for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

            I figure the amount by considering historical worst case inflation and the number of years until I reach 90 and then I  calculate the after tax lump sum.

            As an example, using past inflation figures, If I were 21 and used 90 as an expectation then I would quit if I won $100,000,000 after taxes.

            My actual number, of course, is not that high.

            At  somewhere past 70 or 75 I'd probably just quit anyway.

            Anything can happen but this is as good a way to figure it as any.

              $10 mil would be enough for me to live out my days well on, so at that point Id quit.

                I'll keep playing, I don't do casino's... just MM and PB

                Agree, if I won a good size amount I would still play mega and power and but down alittle more than I usually do and would have no problem puttin down a grand or so when the jackpot is huge!

                    What a coincidence!

                    But I've always felt a special kinship and closeness with him.

                    It's like we've bonded and become exclusive best friends for life.

                    I was thinking of building a monument in his honor if I ever come into a lot of money.

                    And of course I'd be starting a charitable foundation in his name to help poor widows and little orphans.

                              The more I won the more I would gamble. I can see myself going for and evening of $5. slots with $40k.
