Or does it have to be a particular amount for genuine " happiness" to kick in?
BTW- what would that HA be?...... (HA- Happiness Amount)

    If we're talking the big multi-state games, then yes, I'd be happy with the minimum amounts.

          I Agree! Winning the Ohio Classic Lotto which is currently $66 million would satisfy all my needs as well! I am only playing the OCL for now but plan on playing MM and PB in the future if my remaining 8-draws for the Ohio Classic Lotto fail to fulfill my dreams and wishes.

            $15 million is definitely more than what my husband and I have but we are aspiring to be worth at least that much as we get closer to retirement age. Our method is not dependent on the lottery but instead based on the projected path of our investment and retirement accounts.

            I also think there may be one or two LP members who have a net worth of at least $15 million.

                  Of course I would be happy. 1 million, 10 million, 100 million. I would take any win.

                    Thank You one & all for your resposes thus far.l asked this question based on the fact that there are those players who will only start wagering a bet once the jackpot reaches a certain sum. That could be translated " its too low for me & the family at present, it needs to fatten up a bit".

                      I would be happy with any amount that can guarantee I don't have to work again.  Only have to work by choice or allows me to  do something I truly love that may not pay well.  So if that was 10 million that would work just as well as 300 million.

                      To God be the glory... 

                      When you're winning you're being blessed by Him!

                          I have been playing longer than any annuity pays out so  I don't play for just any jackpot.

                          It has to be at a certain minimum level.

                          At this point I would feel chumped if I beat 260 million to one odds and got four and a half million after taxes.

                            That's me;  in fact, I'm happy when I hit a couple of numbers w/ the multiplier for ten bucks.
