You have a better chance of enjoying a cup of coffee than winning any major prize on Mega Millions or Powerball.

I enjoy my coffee while filling out my 10 lines for PB

    Spending $2 on Coffee for morning equals $14 a week or $728 for the year. You will be down $7,280 in 10 years, if you do not stay up.  Now try telling us something we don't know.

      Spending $5 on Mega Millions and $10 on Powerball for every drawing equals $30 a week or $1,560 for the year. You will be down $15,600 in 10 years, if you do not win any major prize.

      Spending $4 on Starbucks Mon-Fri and $40 on Sunday Golf equals $60 a week or $3,120 for the year. You will be down $31,200 in 10 years, and you will NEVER win anything back.

      Stop playing Golf on Sundays and no more Starbucks Venti Cappuccino every weekday, save $60 a week. Then you can spend $30 a week on Lottery, and save $30 a week in IRA/investment. You will have saved $15,600 plus interest in 10 years, and you will win some money back from your lottery play, with the small chance at much more.

          Not a bad idea, I have a years worth of tickets and I think I can get one wall covered.

            It's not a bad idea to keep them f/ a year.  I'm fairly certain that if you...say...won a thousand bucks and your winnings were reported to the IRS, you could deduct your losses from that amount.  That might have changed, though.

              HOW TO WIN THE LOTTERY BY NOT PLAYING=SAVE YOUR MONEY TO PLAY THE LOTTERY SOMEDAY.

              OUR REGULAR LOTTERY PROGRAMMING.

              1) Playing the lottery more often for less tickets= Buying 1 lottery ticket.

              2) Playing the lottery less often for more tickets= Buying multiple lottery tickets.

              3) Playing the lottery less often for less tickets= Buying 1 lottery ticket monthly or yearly.

              4) Playing the lottery more often for more tickets= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.

              I SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE MY LOSSES.

              A lottery stop loss limit is very important to be a successful lottery player over the long term.

              I SPENT $2 ON THE POWERBALL LOTTERY GAME.

                  I only play when the jackpot gets high with the money I saved by not playing when the jackpot was low.  That way I break even.

                    Breaking ever sounds good but I like to spend money on chances to win every draw. Spending money and being in the heat of the battle each draw is part of the fun for me. US Flag
