Or would you play ever so now and then just for the fun or it to keep yourself " busy" despite having enough walking around money? Or would you completely turn your back on the game with the thinking " I got mine, let someone else get theirs!"

      With a major win, I'd stop playing the multistate games and bigger lotto, but I'd keep playing scratchers just for fun. And still go to the casino. Both those are entertainment now, so not sure that would change.

        The word " luck " is nowhere to be found in this thread.

            I get the feeling I would be too busy to play much (due to wanting to do so many new things ect) but know I would at least play a little still.

                If I win a big jackpot... "Mission Accomplished." That's the end of my lottery playing.

                  I honestly don't know, we've all read of folks winning more than one mega jackpot years apart so perhaps a qualified 'yes' is my answer!

                    Skeptical not sure if I'd quit playing or not .......

                    but I will say a lot depends on how well I'm able to manage my money from the initial big win and more then likely will keep playing if only cause of a bad habit

                      I would continue to play but only when the jackpot was high because I would not need to be an every day player anymore.-weshar75

                        Heck NO. This is when playing will really be a lot of fun because I'm not playing for chump change anymore.

                          I would probably keep playing just because I like to play.

                            I would keep playing the P3 and P4. But then I wouldn't have to worry about playing box. It would be for straight hits only.

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

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