Hoping that you and others do NOT win..yet, especialy if it is at the start up stage, because deep down you want the jackpots to roll? When it does reach a " sensible" amount then and Only then do you see yourself being handed the " cardboard check"..right? Smile

Does that make sense, the hoping not to win part, or is it " win it all now, regardless of the amount?

          Define " l don't care"  Nydebbie.

          Do you want to win the jackpot@ $15 mil / $40 mil only?

                  Every ticket I purchase I want to win that jackpot whether it is the base amount or 300 million.  I never hope not to win!

                      Raven- l do not have a problem with the idea of being WRONG. My post is an opinion that is based on fact. How so?

                       The simple fact that  people are playing with the idea of these jackpot growing into the hundreds of millions of Dollars- if it is won, No rollover. ( common sense) So in the Grand Scheme of things- l think l am Right even though you think me Wrong.

                      l don't know of a single person who says " I DO NOT WANT THE JACKPOTS TO GROW".. l  WANT TO WIN IT ALL AT THE INITIAL AMOUNT...( saying l want to win any amount is a catch 22 expression since winning is the ultimate Goal)  That being said : people play to " Not win" until the " Price is right"..Big Smile 

                       ** When was the last time you heard someone tell you " The Starting MM Jackpot would have been $7 mil after taxes- no one won, l am pissed because now its going to roll over when it could have been me!"

                              I always hope to win. Even $15M would be plenty for me. More would be nicer, of course, but as long as I keep my spending within reason, I'll still be comfortably set for a long life.
