Nope definitely no t going t to quit my job.   Its funny how everyone has their list of "WANTS" when they hit it big.  Im just looking to get a new truck and 200-300 acres of land.  Very modest i believe.

    Just looking to see if anyone can give some good motivational quotes for me to continue purchasing.   I myself have won through local SC draws, $500, $1000, and still looking for my $1m. 


    $1m is my goal and i wonder how long many of you have been buying and your frequency.   Do you do Powerball, MB, or neither and how much is too much for a weekly budget?   I just don't want my dreams to wither away in the wind...and are dreams of a paid off house and car too much to dream/wish for?   Thanks all.

    Hi buyingtime,

    I don't really have any motiviational quotes but as other's have said "you can't win if you don't play". As for myself I play Powerball with Powerplay, and MM with the Multiplier along with my state game of Mass Cash. I've cut way down on scratch tickets. I do not buy draw tickets all the time. Sometimes will go a few weeks before buying a PB or MM ticket. When the new matrix for MM was coming out I was not going to buy MM anymore but then I liked the idea of the megaball dropping to 1 in 15. Though being able to win the 2nd prize on MM is even more impossible now that you have to get 5 numbers out of 75.  I totally understand your dreams. Even though I'm a realist and know that I will most likely die without a lottery win, I'm not giving up on the lottery. I look at it this way, someone, somewhere is going to win the lottery so we all have as much of a shot as anyone else since it's all random.

        My motivation is that A LOT of people win jackpots. 

        If you consider the odds, the number of winners is quite staggering.  I don't want to be the odd man out and not be one of the only losers.
