Well, that's it for me for mega millions, may-be I'll take another look at the powerball to play.

            Even though the odds will be stretched to 258 million to 1, the original odds at 175 million to 1 didn't really make it any easier. I will continue to get my one ticket once the jackpot exceeds $200 million and will splurge with 2 or 3 tickets when it exceeds $500 million.

              I think that's going to be my plan as well. Yes Nod

                I give up on lottery ticket's weekly, but then when i feel better about the lottery, I try another day. I am in Canada, and the lottery is a gamble, like anything else in life- just weigh what ticket's are worth it, and which one's are not..

                  What's the difference if one person or 10 people win? It's not you,I guess. Welcome to the lottery!

                        Just look at it as clarity.  It certainly helps when picking which games to play and when.

                        Every time I feel like quitting altogether something comes along and kicks me and I buy more tickets anyway.

                          It's called greed, almost everyone would like to score millions of dollars with no more effort than it takes to earn a dollar or two.  Playing the lotteries is the only honest way I know of doing that.

                            The christmas raffles are about to start being sold. Those are guaranteed to have many top prize winners. I do better on raffles.

                            That money's gone fo ever
