Ok I will answer for me.  No I would not spend $6336 on the chance to win 10K$.  I buy one ticket (sometimes 2) even though I participate in Maddog's PB challenge.

Can you imagine the amount of time you would be tying up the machine to purchase 3168 tickets?  just for fun - one line per ticket.  I think the cashier would really dislike that person LONG before they were done ringing up the sale.  :)

$6336 is my lottery budget for about 10 years so I couldn't try that. But once I win big this could be my monthly lottery budget just because Big Grin

That money's gone fo ever

    There are five lines per play slip so 3168 lines could be brought with 632 play slips.  Before MM and PB came to Ohio I would travel to the borders of Indiana and Michigan to buy tickets for co-workers and myself when their jackpots got large.  Retailers were happy to serve lines of people from out of state with handful of play slips.

    You have more patience than I.  ... long before the clerk was finished I would be fidgeting.

          Lottery Forum Members are people too. If any purchased a ticket/ tickets- they have as much of a chance at winning any jackpot as the next  person. Why would their chances be any different?

          It's not rocket science- it's just numbers!!

            It's going to be me and I will tell you why.  I purchased tickets for the lottery pool at work and the lady screwed up and added power play which was $80 more than what I should have paid. I could have said I didnt want them but I started thinking. What if the people at the store pooled together and purchased the error tickets while I got what I wanted then their ticket won? Also today is my birthday so that will be a wonderful gift :D

                I doubt anyone will win tonight.  I think it will roll over and then when next week comes and it goes close to 450mil....THEN much higher chance of someone winning. 

                 

                I still remember when the PB was at 650mil.....if only no one had won (odds of that were very low). But I remember the MUSL saying that if no one won the 650mil jackpot....the sales would've been so crazy that it would've likely pushed up to 900mil+ and the MUSL was gonna do a special drawing at time square...could've been even close to 1 billion at that time...

                  Powerball jackpot has never exceeded $600 million but Mega Millions has gone over $600 million twice.

                    The answer is no. I hope I'm wrong

                    I was right but I had hoped to be wrong. Maybe one of the many inactive members who last logged-in on June 21, 2011 will hit the jackpot on Wednesday Wink

                    That money's gone fo ever

                      Good point. Just looked it up and looks like PB highest was 590 and MM had been over 600
