Today I'm debating playing $10 worth of powerball tickets and I started wondering how much has a single person played in hopes of winning.

I've seen some people around here talking about spending $20 regularly which to me seems a bit over the top unless I was pooling with a bud or two.

 

How much do you regularly spend on PB/MM tickets? Does the amount you spend change depending on how high the jackpot is?

    £4 when I buy tickets = 2 lines I buy a ticket every 2-3 weeks at the moment.

     

    If it is a huge draw like £100M + then I will push the boat out with £6 = 3 lines.

    2016 Won/Lost

    EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

    UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

    2016 Total: -£24

    Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

     

    EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

    EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

    UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

            Spent $50 on the $400 million MM drawing last year. 

            Not more than $20 on one drawing since that time.

              Per week

              $6 on PB

               $4 on mm

              State 6/49 game $2

              JC5 game $7

              $19 total, regardless of JP size, sometimes play a few xtra bucks on a whim.

                What others spend on lottery tickets doesn't effect what I spend, I spend what I think is appropriate for me.
