Since this PB is now above $500 mil, I'm going all in & purchasing 46 tickets.  I've saved all my winners from that time which total $92.  I know 46 tickets will only increase my chances by a very, very minuscule amount, but any little bit helps right?  Does anyone else save their winners to cash them in on more tickets for monster drawings like this?

        Well I would agree, it is easy to win! ($4 or $7 that is LOL)

        I win these little amounts quite often, but never 5+0 or 5+1

          I do not save my winnings because I have not won on powerball in weeks if not months.  But I only buy two or three lines and usually I match one or two numbers.  So no prize money to get on those times but I budget $100 each month to play powerball mainly and then mega millions in times like these when the jackpot is over $100 million.  Good luck on winning the big one I bought $10 without powerplay this time.-weshar75

            If I relied on my winnings to pay for it, I'd be lucky if I could buy a single ticket.

            I'm debating whether to buy a St Jude's Dream Home raffle ticket, or go all out on this draw.  Better odds for St Judes.  Better pay off for PowerBall.

              Never thought of doing that. I think I am going to start though. Anything under a hundred dollars I think will work for that. I alway purchase more tickets with the few I do win on and they usually lose. Might as well save them up and check 46 tickets on a huge jackpot.

                Do both.

                You'll probably need the PB winnings to pay the taxes on the house.
