THRIFTY, PB and MM, both are the most difficult ones in the the California lottery, because of their system changed.

 

Especially, MM why increaded so many plain numbers(from 56 to 75), is this too many to be added?

 

I feel its mega numbers (15) is easier now, but it doesn't increase our winning opportunity!

Thanks for your kindness to visit my posting; and left me your warmness for my slow chewing! 

Those who wants to win lottery is normal; and it is abnormal if anybody does not want to win!

      I do not play MM and PB everyday or any lottery game. Yes, the odds are insane, but you can still play them once a year for $1 and $2.

              $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.

              Maybe 1 or 5 million and I doubt that, but I seriously doubt ANYBODY on here has a net worth of $15 million

                I think you're wrong. There is one individual here who has a home that is valued in the $6-8million range. I believe they have several other properties as well. Not everyone here on the forum is struggling. I am sure there are others who are very well off.

                  You might conclude that after reading some of the whining posts of a few members but there are folks here who play lotteries for entertainment not wealth. 

                  I use to regularly run into a local who owned three McDonald stores when buying lottery tickets before he retired, sold his stores and move to Florida.  A successful car dealer twenty miles from here use to buy lottery tickets for his dealership and customers and when his dealership won a Super Lotto jackpot he shared it with all his employees and later he won one by himself after which he retired, sold his dealership and moved to Florida too.  Both these guys would have ended up well off even if they had never played the lottery.

                  You simply can't put every lottery player in the same boat.

                   * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                    No I didnt say anybody was struggling I just said I doubted that anyone on here had millions of dollars. Im sure there are a lot of us on here who are not living hand to mouth

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

                        I Agree!

                            Somewhat. If I win a jackpot of course I'd like it to be a good one. A million isn't enough but 10 might be.
