What amount if any would make you  fold your tent and walk away from the game forever?

    Politically, I am Pro Self Pick. My ego would gnaw at me day and night once the dust settles. I would continually ask myself, "Can you do it again?" "Was it just a fluke?" "Is being the first official LP member to win a multi state lottery jackpot enough?"" Do you want to make Lottery Olympic history and win in both games?"

     

    I guess you have to be an addict to understand!

      That's like asking Mickey Mantle if he'd walk away from baseball after he won a World Series.

      And if you enjoy something, why would you want to quit doing it just because you have more money?

        I Agree!  My "hobby" is lottery.  Just like to pursue numbers.  Sometimes I find a little $$ along the way.

            Well Rdgrnr: Roy Hobbs walked away from the game.

              No, if the jackpot was huge on the Euromillions I would still buy a few tickets. It's fun.

                  I'd keep playing and donate any big winning tickets to the non-profit of my choice.

                    How kind of you Holeekau- l have a better idea, how about you donating the $100 mil plus you won to a non profit organization of your choice AND THEN  continue playing for the one you will keep?

                      With that kind of money I would have time to research and hopefully crack the lottery code if there is anything like that. So yes I would still play.

                      That money's gone fo ever
