Do you generally play both major jackpots regardless of the amount?

Or do you wait for them to reach a certain limit before placing a bet? l will play the PB from the get go, however l wait for MM to reach $30 mil before pitching in- how about you guys?

 

Side Question: We were having a few cold ones last night and one of the guys asked " Why is it that Asian Women do not get Cellulite?"- l dont know, do you? Approve

    Yes, I do because you never know when your chosen numbers will hit and knowing lottery karma, they will on the very day you missed playing them.

      I Agree! I dont play based on jackpot size.

            Always play both. Larger jackpot amount doesn't increase your chances of winning, it's still slim to none regardless. And any "experts" who claim some junk about better ROI or Expected Value when PB and MM jackpots are large really don't know what they are talking about.

            Answer: Asian people have thicker skin than caucasians. They need that in order to put up with silly jokes like this:

              Ha ha ha, this is a great question! Search my old thread, "How Much Money (To Try) And Win, and you'll see some very interesting comments on this. Buddy, from what I can tell, the minimum amount really isn't enough to win for lots of people...won't fix their problems. For this reason, they like to wait until it's "worth their while" and waaaaaay up there. Hey, it's prerogotive and I fully respect that...seriously. However, doesn't that somehow shine light on bigger hang-ups...like greed and unappreciation maybe? I mean, in this case, doesn't a small pot beat no pot at all???

              I've been diagnosed with severe "rationalitisensimus"...and it's bad.Skeptical

               

              L.L.

              Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                I always have 1 ticket for the big games.  I wait for the JPs to grow before I'll buy multiple tickets, tho.

                Since the price for PB went up to $2 I'd probably sit it out for a couple draws, except that I have some numbers I've been playing since 1993, and I just KNOW if I didn't play them they'd come up, so I end up playing one line for PB even when it's at the lowest.

                  Hard to get excited when MM is at 12M... but like L.L. stated... I'll take what I can get and a few million is nothing to sneeze at.

                      I sometimes play both top jackpot games in my state however PB and MM can't be them when PB is at $94M, MM is at $20M and our state game Classic Lotto is at $40.2M.  I'll be picking up tickets for PB and OCL tonight.

                        I buy tickets for the Super Lotto Plus every drawing but usually wait for the PB and MM to get in the $75-100 million range before purchasing tickets.

                          Have you always been from California?  I thought I read a post you made sometime back about your state didn't have any local games.

                            Do you generally play both major jackpots regardless of the amount?

                            I do! My achievable aim is to hit the second prize with a megaplier/powerplay. The odds of that is 1 in 3,904,701 for MM and 1 in 5,153,623.65 for PB. Not bad. Compare those odds with the odds of hitting the local 6/49; 1 in 13,983,816. <== very tough odds.

                            That money's gone fo ever
