        Not really.

        I get a ticket whenever the jackpot exceeds $100 million.

          Base jackpot or a trillion don't make me no nevermind.

          It's all the same to me.

          Steady as she goes.

          Stay the course.

          Don't rock the boat.

          Wouldn't be prudent.

            $400 Mil is a number that gives me a reminder that this is gonna make changes in my choices of a slightly different lifestyle.....BUT, I think I can handle it.

            might have to adjust the verbage in this one to "Cash Plus" as this would be the Mrs.

            My reaction would be more like:

                Big jackpots strike me the opposite way, as they groe I hope they get hit before the fever kicks in. The media goes nuts, all of a sudden there's all these 'experts', and on TV and in the News threads people go really nuts talking about all the things they're going to do with money they haven't won.

                I must admit that when a big one gets hit and things calm down on LP most threads are about Pick 3, kind of entertaining.


                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    I do admit that when I have extra cash I buy more tickets but this month I got $20 so it is $4 tickets until the $20 is gone.  I play with the megaplier so at least my prize will be multiplied by something.  Hoping for that $1 million pay out I could take that any day of the week.-weshar75

                      I don't buy more tickets unless the jackpot is really high. I only buy Powerball and Megamillions on my own when it's over $100 million, I concentrate on Easy 5 and Louisiana Lotto even though the prizes are smaller, the odds are better. I also have a lottery pool that buys Powerball, Lotto, and MegaMillions, which only costs me $4 every 2 weeks, so I have the games covered there too.

                              I still buy 1 line each for PB and MM. For Texas Lotto I'm buying 1 line, and for Texas 2 Step 5 lines each draw.
