Has your enthusiasm for PB/MM been dampened as of late: Y/N?

    Mine was when they went to 2 dollars a line On PB. And they seem to let it get up so high. And the odds of NJ winning so frequently even if every one in NJ bought 50 tickets were almost zero kind of dampen the whole thing. Now that being said I have to admit I will be playing a one line long shot numbers for tonight. And since it was just won it makes it even a longer shot. But I will be playing ten rows of California super lotto. But I do know several people who have been putting in pretty frequently on PB that says their done with it. I think one has to move to NJ to increase their odds.

    See Ya!

    Win once, win big.

      Well of course!  When the JP's are in the stratosphere, along with it goes my fantasies... however, the minimum PB JP is nothing to sneeze at and with the power of soul, anything is possible GuitarLOL

          You always have the option of waiting until the jackpots reaches a point that suits you before playing.

            Interesting... how did you land on $45M?  How does an extra $5M put you in the game at that price point?

            I don't disagree... just curious...

              That's what drives me bonkers about Mega Millions... $12M starting point and turtle speed growth to get to a point where I'm ready to be back in the game.

              Don't get me wrong, $12M isn't anything to slouch at either... but this is supposed to be a "super sized" game (MEGA is its name Wink) and lately it's been nothing of the sort.

              $12M starting and the best it can climb for the next draw is $1M... really?... c'mon mann...

              Granted, it still holds the record... but PB beats it hands down IMO on a draw to draw basis on average.

                  Anyone who thinks without and doubt that they are going to win a record, or near record, or any jackpot and loses their enthusiasm when they don't win it shouldn't be playing in the first place.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    Better to have played and quit, than to have never played at all.

                      i prefer to keep my main playing in  my tax free  home of australia. but when your jackpots get so high I just cant resist sending a few bucks over.

                        I'm certain that whoever wins will feel you made a very wise investment. Yes Nod

                          I'm content with MM the way it is now.

                          I don't see the need for MM to get in a pissing contest with PB about jackpot size and further erode the already almost impossible chance I had of winning it.

                            No since I always buy one ticket for every PM, MM and SLP draw regardless of the jackpot. So, for me it's just routine.
