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.

Got that right Coin Toss.
I can't begin to tell you how many times I have heard people complain about not hitting the Big One- hey if it was that easy, everyone would be winning the top prize week in week out.

    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.

    yeah you have the right idea.  thats my main game plan. here where i live. min entry. ea draw.

    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

      Yea it sucks to lose.  The real problem is I actually thought I had a chance of winning...smh I know they say you play for fun but it's just not fun anymore and with mega changing its odds from impossible to you gotta be crazy to play this game I'm guess ill have to find some other way to blow my ten bucks a week.

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

        I seldom played PB before they increased the ticket price, but the cash value and the second prize justifies playing every drawing. Just a week after the $449 million jackpot was won the cash value is almost $29 million. There were five jackpots over $300 this year so even us jackpot hunters are playing PB more. If we waited until we thought more than half the combinations would be sold making it more likely the jackpot is won, four of this years drawings did that. There is no comparison to when I played the Ohio Lotto trying to win a $12 million jackpot that was consistently split by 2 or more players.

        How else can anyone get even a very slim chance to win that kind of money for 2 bucks?

          I think my big change was I was playing five lines, now will keep it down to one per draw on PB. And that darn 26 needs to come back up, and the 12 over due.

          See Ya!

          Win once, win big.

            Nope, my enthusiasm is still there.  Even if a huge Jackpot was just won, because you know it's gonna start all over at 40 Mil for the Powerball and 10 Mil for MM and that's still a big chunk of change if you hit either jackpot.  I mean seriously, would you complain about hitting 10 million?  Come on now, haha.

            "JACKPOT BABY!" ...those elusive words still elude me! LOL

              Nope! I certainly wouldn't complain! In fact, I like the smaller jackpots. I think the big ones get you way too much publicity and would bring out some nasty parasites and leeches.

              $10 million cash option, after taxes, what's that? $4 million? Sounds like plenty to me.
