 We are all dreamers here. We are imagining what we would do with the winnings. How to go about winning and what we should do when we win. 

 I am sure that most of us here at LP have written plans to follow when we win D BIG WON !!

Good Luck to all !!Cool

Yeah Music- Reminds me of a song that came out years ago that went something like this " Imagine all the winners,  it isn't hard to do,You may say l'm a dreamer, but l'm not the only one Wink ....

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

    Looks like PB sales are down indeed, $171 million if no winner tonight.

    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

      Maybe lottery fatigue is starting to settle in again especially with the multi-state lotteries.  If players were hoping to win a million dollars then there are plenty of local lotteries that offer that amount and more with better odds.

        Texas and Oklahoma accounts for at least 10 million+ of lottery sales. It's bound to be impacted for both games. :)

        playing what can be afforded...spend half of what was reclaimed.

          MM will be $253 million if no winner tonight.

            Even a $253 million jackpot can't generate any excitement. Not the case for me as I will be more than happy to participate in the current run that both PB and MM are experiencing.

              No one will win either game until ALL possible number combinations are sold, so get ready for billion $ jackpots!

                 Wow noise-gate, you do have a memory for music.  Do you know Don McNay ?  He has authored many books about lottery winners and he starts each chapter with a musical verse.

                 It looks like both PB & MM are taking too long to get to the uncharted territories i.e. above $700 million.

                 I agree that Lottery fatigue is setting in.

                  You're not alone, over $40M were spent on tickets for last night MM drawing and suspect close to the same will spent on tickets for tonight's PB drawing.

                    I was right and I would bet even more will be spent this week, although I suspect it will take four or five more rolls before sales reach the frenzy point which seems to start at $70M for both games.

                      If you must play,
                      decide upon three things at the start:
                      the rules of the game,
                      the stakes,
                      and the quitting time.
