How do we "be water"?  White Bounce

Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. By Bruce, Lee.

          Good for them...that extra dollar became a "million dollar dollar"

          Scared

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            For those who play both Mega Millions and Powerball, when it comes to the Megaplier or Powerplay do you play one or the other, both, or neither.

            Looking at results it appears very few people play them.

            The MM sometimes I do but PB is $2 now and I just dont fell like kicking over the extra dollar a line... I liked it when I could slap down $10 bucks and get my 5 lines w/pp

              I  sledom  play  the  PB   game  ever  since  they   raised  the   price

               

              And the few times I do  ,  I seldom play the  Powerplay  with it

               

              And  only  one  ticket

               

              I  dont  like  greedy  people   ( or  greedy games  )  like  PB  has  become 

               

              Mega  Millions  I  play  more  often  ,  but  still  not  every  draw

               

              When I play Mega  Millions  ,  I usually play 3.00..........one ticket with the  Megaplier where I choose my own numbers  ,  and one regular  QP   without  Megaplier

               

              Last   draw  I  hit  2  of  the  5   and had  the  Mega  Ball  also   , on the  ticket I played with the Megaplier ,  where I chose my own numbers

               

              But it was only   2x   ,  and  like  Ridge  said ,   it  seems  it  usually  is  2x  whenever  I  hit  on   it

               

              Never  hit  one  number  on   the   QP   I    played 

               

              They need to pay more on the lower tier prizes , but  I  am sure that aint  gonna  happen

                    Both.

                    But I'm gettin' tired of it. Neither one of 'em really pays Jack unless you get 4 + 1 anyway.

                    And it seems like everytime I get something on MM, the Megaplier is 2X.

                    Think I'm gonna cut 'em aloose.

                    I basically agree with you Ridge.   

                    But I voted "other" because I found another way I could waste an extra buck.  But ya gotta be in New York to do it.  I play NY's Sweet Million, and I play the same set of 6 numbers twice on a single ticket.  That probably sounds crazy to you, but there is a method to my madness.  Sweet Million is not pari-mutuel for the first 5 JP winners.  So if by some miracle my two lines of the same set of six numbers were drawn, I'd win two million as opposed to one million.  I do this because the odds of winning this 6/40 game are 3,838,383 to 1.  PB odds with the PP added is greater than 5 million to 1 to win two million bucks.   

                    I'd hate to have happen to me what happened to a guy in upstate NY a while ago.

                    A guy went into a deli located right down the street from his house.  He asked for a QP MM ticket.  The lady who owns the deli punched up his ticket and said "Two dollars."  The guy said he only wanted one line.  She says "Oh I'm sorry.  I accidentally hit the Megaplier button."  He says "I dont want it."  She says "No problem" and punched him up a one dollar QP.   You know where this is going, dont you?

                    She didnt cancel the 2 dollar ticket.  Instead she bought it for herself.  She won $1,000,000.  It was in all of the newspapers and on the TV news.  He knows what happened.  How'd you like to be him and every time you walked or drove past that deli and have to think to yourself "My million dollars is inside that deli with that lady."

                    About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

                      I don't play powerplay because I am playing to win the JACKPOT! I might feel differently about Mega Millions when it arrives in Florida next month.

                        I always take the mistakes, GiveFive.

                        I even have a slogan for it:

                        "If a ticket's a mistake, it's a ticket you must take"


                                                                     
                                             
                                                                 

                         

                         

                         

                         

                                                                                                                           

                        "The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing"
