I would love to win Mega Millions or Super Lotto, but I play mostly fantasy five (a pick 5) game from California lotto.  It starts at a $50,000 jackpot and adds up when no one hits and it rolls over.

Biggest here were around high 400k or just over 500k.  I say it is better to stand a chance (well it is still long odds but not astronomical) like the ones that have the picks and the bonus ball (Mega and Super lotto)

Am I nuts or is getting 50.000 plus a better bet than trying for MILLIONS?   

No Pity!

    No,you are not nuts. How you can be nuts playing a game with lower odds? Big Grin

    I knew a guy who won Fantasy 5 here in Sacto. Older gentlemen. He used to buy so many tickets that the cashier used to let him come behind the counter and run the slips through the machine himself. I remember seeing him do that on more than one occasion. I think he hit it twice. Then a couple of years of later the cashier told me he died. Apparently it was during the summer and he and his roommate died from heat exhaustion. They weren't using the air conditioner and it was about 110 degrees. Too cheap? Or just broke from buying so many tickets? Sad demise. Sounds like another case of the "Lottery Curse".
