      The fever is gone for me.  I will play $4 and that's it.  When it hit $2B then maybe I'll be bouncing off the walls but not anymore.  The billion dallas roof was blown so I got something out of that alone.

        Have somewhat of the same feeling. I hit a giddy limit at $900 million then when no one won It, calm settled in.Now it's just " get this thing over with."

            I Agree! and some of the people I talked to believe it's way too much money for one winner especially when 65% of the tickets won't many any of the numbers.

              Well when it was $500 million I spent $50 bucks and when it was $900 million I spent $50.  Between those two drawings I won close to $40 so now that it is $1.3 billion I spent $15 on two tickets a $9 ticket with powerplay and a $6 ticket with powerplay.  I am running out of lotto budget to spend on tickets so on wednesday night their better be a winner winner chicken dinner.  If it rolls to saturday I am going to let my mother play the lotto because she always sets aside money for rainy days and in oregon we got a lot of rain.-weshar75

                  Well I am like a few of the earlier posters....it was exciting when it hit the 900 million mark but now that new has wore off and its just another draw.  Sure I will play and be somewhat excited but not like i was the drawing before.

                  Good Luck to all.

                    I am finding it discouraging that soo many tickets have been purchased to date and no one has hit it yet...kinda brings one back to reality of just how hard it is to hit and makes me rethink how much money i am comfortable with spending on PB tickets now. I just wish they would have better the odds and payouts on smaller prizes to make up for the harsh odds now in place for the JP. I can see buying more then one line had they done that. Just glad there are other games out there that keep the hope and excitement going because PB just doesn't do it anymore for me. Spending more then $2 on a PB ticket makes me feel foolish with my money honestly. That's just me though

                        I've spent $4 on numbers I've picked on my own, will buy $10 in QP's, and plan to throw in $2 on a work pool.  Not motivated to spend anymore really no matter how big it gets.

                          Since I am from the UK obviously I don't have Powerball fever but it has made me consider buying a QP or a 'lucky dip' as we call them here for tonight's £51m EuroMillions draw.

                          Good luck to all you Powerball players!

                            I went out for a walk Saturday and bought 4 - $2 tickets. One at four different locations.

                            At the last stop, I purchased a $5 scratch ticket as well. So, $13 spent in total.

                            I won $0 on the 4 PB tickets, but won $10 on the $5 scratch ticket.Big Grin

                            I am going to cash the $10 winner and buy 4 more Powerball tickets, 1 Megamillions and 1 NYS Lotto ticket. Good luck to all...especially me! Hyper

                            Total out of pocket I am going to spend for PB tickets for Wed's drawing = $0.00

                            Know your spending limit and stay within it. Remember it's only a game. Bet with your head, not over it!

                              I completely agree. I would rather see more $1,000 and up prizes and a slightly smaller jackpot. More 25k, 50k, 100k, 500k, and 1mill prizes would keep me more engaged. When you buy $50 worth of tickets and only win $8 back it doesn't make you want to go back for more.
