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

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.

Yeah I've always been from California.  There is someone else on LP with a similar name as mine so you might have read one of their posts.

    I looked on the members list for a similar name to mine but for some reason couldn't find anyone who has posted any comments.  I know I have seen someone within the last month post comments with a name similar to mine but am not sure why I can't find them in the members list. Oh well but yeah I've lived in either San Diego, the Bay Area, or the Central Valley my whole life.

      Powerball- Don't play since they increased the price
      MegaMillions- Don't play since they announced even worse odds coming in October

            I like to at least play $2 or $3 on powerball all the time for each drawing and then wait for mega millions to climb to $50 to $60 million before I play my $2 a line ($1 with megaplier on it for $2).-weshar75

              Yes. With odds like those, to win a JP would require a Miracle or Pure luck . So once a month i buy a PB Tkt.

                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?

                  I play whatever is largest.  Mega Millions jackpots usually suck, I mean who wants to win just $20 and remain middle class?  Besides,  MM jackpots don't grow because it's too easy for some players to win.  I'd much rather play PB and have a shot at becoming somewhat rich.

                    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.

                     

                    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?"

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

                    Thick skin or not Jon D- it appears that the TV station is being sued because of this" lapse in judgment.". The station says they cleared the names with the NTSB before going on the air.If heads are going to roll, it should not be Tori Campbell's.Her superiors gave her the greenlight.Try suing the NTSB- goodluck with that..
                    My question is this- did not the station pause at some point, look at the names and say " This looks all wrong, lets err on the side of caution here folks, leave the names out!"

                        Yeah if it was just one wonky name, then I could understand them going ahead with it.  But all 4?  They had to be pretty naive or just plain dumb to not realize something was wrong.

                          I play ever single drawing...why I would have allowed my PB/MM subscription to lapse, so I am flying back from Africa just so I can submit a play for each.  I also make a quick jaunt down to Ohio to play OHCL whenever I fly into Detroit, especially with the jackpot being so high.  So for PB/MM, the jackpot amount does not matter, but it does matter when it comes to the state lotto games.  After giving Uncle Obama his cut, I want to be able to put at least $7 million into accounts I control (note that I did not say accounts in my name).  I know hitting the minimum MM jackpot would violate this desire, but it would get too complicated for me to try to just buy a play each drawing vice just signing up for and paying the subscription period play.

                          As for the Asiana news story, I think the problem in this case was the fact common sense is no longer taught in our liberal schools.  And she stated the names with such a straight face!  Whoever that intern who wrote this names, he has a career in off color comedy all lined up! And no pun intended!

                          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!

                            For a while, I was only playing MegaMillions since Powerball went up, but I'm playing both again. Want to increase my chances of hitting the big one.

                              I usually play both.  Less on the Powerball though since the price increase.
