Right on,Helpmewin. Play because it's fun to win. It also keeps me humble knowing that most of my picks get at most 2 selected winning numbers.

Yesterday's Pick 6 game results were 9-22-25-31-43-45. Only got the 9 and 45. Now the jackpot for Thursday,February 27,2014  will be $6.4 M. 

Great feature  about playing in state games is that you know there will be a winner in your respective states.

      I both like and need the extra money for bills. It feels really good to stay ahead and have a paycheck free of bills from time to time. In the end, it's fun to win and know you've beat the house...and can do it again. These games actually sharpen the mind if you're grindin' on 'em everyday.

       

      L.L.

      Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

      There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.

        noise-gate,

        For the guy who said your answer was too simplisitc I'd say something like this:

        I'd like to win a jackpot so I could organize and finance an expedition into the Louisiana swamps to catch a swamp monster.

        (Now the fun part for the LP folks):

        After I caught him (?) I would ask him if he plays his own numbers or quick picks, if he'd remain anonymous or hold a press conference, ans if he'd take cash or the annuity.

        //

        But seriously as has been said, financial freedom. Being able to do what you want to do when you want to do it and affording whatever you want. No debts. "Heat, eat, and taxes".

        I will remember to tell him that CT.

            I agree.There is nothing like walking around knowing  that when you reach into your pocket,you making contact with " cash".

                      Because actually getting out of my car to buy the tickets is more exercise then just throwing money out the car window, glass half full kind of girl.

                      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                      For a lead role in a cage?

                            Home, home where I wanted to be.

                              I am playing for myself and the family. Without the family, I wouldn't be alive today. I would like to return to school for another major which would lead to a better career. I got some debts to pay off which would really ease my mind. Help my sister too and a good friend as well. We don't own a place of our own so having a house would be amazing. Could take more trips. And develop a better relationship with the gal I like. 

                              Basically lottery would grant us ease of mind. We can focus on other things instead of living paycheck to paycheck. Giving to charity would also be part of equation.
