so how common is it to spend a $100.00 for a large draw just to hopefully get a large pay back and Party

Which brings us to this thought.

How much would you spend if you were 100% confident you would win The Big One?

How much would you spend if you were 0% confident you would win?

What about in-between 0% and 100% confidence?

    Hi rowlettewheel,

    Since the odds of winning the PB and MM jackpots are 1 in 175 million even buying 100 tickets wouldn't seem to give you great odds of winning the jackpot. Now with 100 dollars spent you would still have a greater chance to win the lower prizes but getting something like the 2nd place prize, 5 numbers probably would make any difference.  The most tickets I've bought was 5 tickets for a draw.

      If I were 100% confident, I would just buy one ticket.
