For me, it was $44.00 spent between Thursday and Saturday evening.  I only won $4.00 but at least it was a little return.

        I played $20 bucks worth won nothing. By the time I thought about the odds and if its worth it to analyze the numbers, I just picked #'s and winged it. I think I'll play better when the jackpots are not so high, less pressure to analyze the numbers

          Would any commodity broker fore-knowingly jump on a deal that had a 99.999% failure rate?

          Most people respond by saying, "Well, someone wins most of the time".

          There is no connection between someone who wins and what your odds are. No connection whatsover. There is no justification in my opinion, to validate success based on incomparable situations such as this one. How many hundreds of millions were spent, only for one lucky single ticket to win?

          Let's make this simpler. Flipping a coin. Let's say I told you ahead of time that it didn't matter that you think it's a 50/50 chance at winning. Instead the odds would be 99.999% against you winning with my rules, all for a cost of two bucks. Would you still take on the bet?

          Something to think about.

            I had cut waaaay back on Powerball since the price went up, so I splurged and spent $30 on the last draw.  Won zip zero zed zilch. 

            Now I'm only playing Hot Lotto for the next week or so till my budget recovers, along with the PB and MM jackpots.

                $7 for myself....$5 with a neighbor...and $2 for work pool with 19 other people.

                 

                One person I work for said she and 3 others dropped $50 each and laugh when me and 19 other people did $2.  Next day I asked how much she won, she said not a darn thing. Meanwhile me and my 19 other coworkers are getting 6 tickets for Wed night from the $12 we won ROFL

                100 tickets and she didn't even win the red ball or three of the white balls?

                  Nope! I asked if she even got $4, she said nope. Meanwhile I have been doing the pool since April 20th both Wed and Sat nights and at least got the red ball half the time.

                    I got 5 extry lines (QP's) and hit the Powerball for 12 bucks.

                    I don't get all-fired-up-crazy thinkin' a bunch more lines will improve my chances that much.

                    Wouldn't be prudent.

                          I was happy to spend $60. and I don't consider not winning "a loss" .........

                          I had infinitely BETTER ODDS than someone who didn't play.

                            12 bucks day after rolled over...purchased no tickets okay of drawing since jackpot amount does not matter to me unless I am holding winning ticket.

                            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
