Morning everyone! Coffee Here in Todd's Lottery Discussion page, we hear all kinds of stories of who plays what games, and how and when they do. Big Grin Multiple opinions are also given. So here's mine. My thought, game plan is to win the general Lottery on Wednesday and Saturday here in New York. My alternate game of choice for wagering is Take 5. Yes Nod

I always play these games, and alone. Hiding Behind Computer

As far as the Mega Millions and Powerball games, I enjoy collecting a few bucks from friends and betting as a group. These people are generally work colleagues, a general friend, a local merchant where I do business. DanceI honestly feel that winning 2, 3 hundred million is to much money, and much harder to handle. The object in winning is to be able to enjoy yourself, relax, see and do things you couldn't ordinarily do.  Winning huge amounts can turn into a real chore, headache. You have to hire people to watch, guard and advise you. This can be difficult. Then stress and nerves react. There have been stories where people have won big and ended up broke or dead. Crazy

For me, 5 or 10 million would fit the gap just nice. And that's my story. Have a great day everyone. Smile

    I agree, to much is...to much !

    I mostly play the cash for life game, odds are better and prize is right size.

        This has always been my goal. Winning a good amount to live comfortably.  Not too much, not too little.  Have a modest size house, 1 or 2 dream car,  and to travel wherever  I want. Having less possessions allows you to keep track of things and easier to balance.

            One solution to winning "more than enough" is if you win more than you want / need, you can always give what you don't want away.

            There are many charities that can always use a sizable donation.

            I hope to win one day and hope it's enough that I can enjoy the rest of my life, provide for my family as well as contribute to charities.

            The thing about money is when you win a sizable amount, you end up changing your life style. Bigger houses, fancy more expensive cars and over expenses.

            One thing I didn't think possible was to have too much money
