I guess most people who make that much money wouldn't even bother playing.

          yes. i would play. The ticket is a dollar for MM or two dollars for PB. That's cheaper than seeing a movie and most times much more entertaining.

                It depends...if I had been a regular player before I was earning that much yeah probaly...but if I wasnt Id probaly be involved in some other form of gambling...such as a regular high roller in casinos, or playing with the stock market on a larger scale or real estate etc. etc. etc...

                        Just because I purchase lottery tickets doesn't mean I am not "getting on with my life".  I am certainly not sitting around waiting for the drawings.  It only takes a couple of minutes to fill out a playslip and buy it when I am at the store or gas station.  But, when I travel to Europe I always buy my tickets ahead in a multi-draw just in case!!

                            If I was pulling in that kind of money, I think I would step aside and give somebody else a shot at the JP... When somebody wins big, I prefer to see somebody who needs it; hard to get excited over a multi millionaire winning more money...

                              Can you imagine if Bill Gates bought a lottery ticket and won 640M MM record jackpot last year? And worse imagine if he bought the only winning ticket.

                              If that happened, there would be a riot Big Smile
