Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering if people win more by buying one MM or PB ticket or if people have more luck buying 3 tickets or more.  Since the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 out of 175 million I realize that buying 5 tickets for example isn't going to make much difference in winning the jackpot but might help winning the other prizes. When I started picking my own numbers a few months ago I noticed that I had more luck when I was playing 3 to 5 tickets for a draw as opposed to buying just 1. Some people might have the opposite and do better just buying one ticket when they play. It's still much more often that I buy one ticket. Was wondering which way people won more at?

    The odds do not change despite the numbers of tickets you purchase.  For instance there are multiple lottery pools across the country who could buy up to 100 tickets for a particular draw-  and still not win the big one. Yet some person across Town can put down $1.00 and win the whole thing, its all about the numbers and pure chance.

        I always get $10 every Mega drawing. Then usually play a little local drawings from time to time.
