I would have to say that the jackpot would have to be  around $10-12 million with a take home of 6-7 Million cash after taxes. If that wish was granted & I won...I would never play it again.

    It depends on the size of the jackpot. I really enjoy playing the lottery but if it was a large jackpot like Mega Millions or Powerball I believe I could do it.

    I Agree!

          I can't stop playing.

          I strongly believe that are also some folks here who are trying to perfect their systems / strategies for years; 'beat the odds' - you may call it whatever you choose. You can't stop playing the Lottery if you make a descent living out of it or win the JP. It only makes sense *to me*, to try even harder to perfect your 'system', 'strategy', 'programs' and take it to the next level.

          Just my 2 cents... mho ofc.

            My plan after a big win would be to continue playing to share my good fortune in growing the pot for others.

            Multi-million win, stop playing, not a problem.

              No. I agree with riscknight. Let's suppose you came up with a pick 4 straight system that REALLY kicked butt. I'm talking straight hits 50% of the draws. Since the amount of the jackpot wasn't specified, you could easily bypass the jackpot win and still enjoy playing.

              The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

              Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

                Brad Duke still plays, but I don't think it's to perfect his system, at least not exclusively for that reason, because he won a few bucks on Idaho's raffle a year or 2 ago. 

                I'm not that type of player.  I do it for the entertainment value of dreaming what I'd do if I won, and for the money.  If I had the money, I wouldn't need the dream because I'd be too busy spending my money.

                    rcbuckeye,

                    Thanks.

                    Tinkitty,

                    You sure do assume things about people you don't even know and accuse them of things. That only proves to everyone else what an opinionated buffoon that jumps to conclusions you are.

                    All,
                    Thanks for the replies. I left game and jackpot amount out because the genie or Lottery Fairy probably would too.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      This reminds me og how people were ragging on the Bayfords (€190m winners) when the husband was photographed buying a ticket after hitting the jackpot.

                       

                      I'd like to keep playing as it's fun and a bit of a habit, but if I absolutely couldn't and I was the solle winner of $100m cash, then yeah, I'd stop.

                        Let's say the Lottery Fairie or a genie granted you a wish but there's a condition.

                        You will hit a jackpot but the condition is you can never play lotto again. If you do you'll lose everything you won and never hit again.

                        Could you do it?

                         if it were a life changing amount of money then yes that would be very easy for me to do.

                          Listen coin flip.  I dont know what kind of chitty fairies they have where you are from, but i would do one better than shoot it, I would eat it like a big fat juicy mutton chop and poop him out. 

                          Oh now, you added buffon? So now to quote you, I am a low life, sleazeball, opinionated tout, and buffoon?  Boy you sure just asked for one star with that last comment. 

                          But I will take the high road.  Do you know what that is coin flip?  And no its not the best paying slot machine ever in vegas.

                          I will give you this instead.  Watch out, I trained it to eat chitty fairies, who offer chitty pick 3 straight jackpot wins to SilverLions.

                              Definitely. Whilst I enjoy the lottery, I'm sure I could find other things to entertain me in place of playing the lottery if I had a few million in my bank account. Wink
