Last night I won about $300 playing electronic Black Jack at the casino so I bought 10 lines of Power Ball for tonight's drawing.

I am IN IT! Party Now, let me WIN IT!

      Was at the grocery and saw a PB play slip laying on the lottery stand that holds the cards.  It had the first five numbers filled out but not the PB.  I marked the QP and went with the other numbers.  Highest number was 31, so more than likely someone marking birthdays.  Not something I personally would do, but what the heck, I played it.

        I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

            Since Mega Millions was just won, there's a 100% chance Powerball will be won tonight.  Also, buy tickets in Indiana if at all possible.  Indiana is now "Can't lose"

            With the odds of the big lotteries, it is almost impossible to win more than once. Thus you only get one jackpot in your lifetime. 288 isn't enough (especially now that I've been buying $1 MM tickets for so long) for me to be happy using my one jackpot on. I'l buy one when it gets to 350M+

              201.4 Million cash isn't enough? I'll take it in a heartbeat. Hell, I'll take the second place with the power play and retire next

                200M AFTER taxes is enough. You can only get one jackpot maximum in your life, go after the amounts that can allow you to never have to worry ever again.

                  That's the power of greed. Too much isn't enough

                  I'd be happy with half as much or twice as much, or even 2nd prize for $1 mil

                  Although, I'd rather have 1st prize!

                    Both of us would end up with 133+ Million cash after taxes. If they handed you the check, you wouldn't turn it down would you?

                      here in Arkansas the sales end an hour before the drawing, this seems like it hurts sales, it may not be a lot but every minute of no sales= less cash to the prize pool and education, etc.

                      why not end 5 minutes before?

                            No luck for me tonight. 2 lines, had 1 number on each line, but not the Powerball.

                            Hoping it grows, and just produces a whole bunch of million dollar winners for the next drawing or two. It's fun to see so many million dollar winners happen when these jackpots start growing. I'd sure like to be one of them!

                            Hope everyone had a little more luck than I tonight!

                              Of course i would accept it immediately. That said, why spend $2 at a chance for a once in a lifetime occurrence when i know that there is a high likelihood that waiting a few more draws will allow the same $2 can have a chance at a much larger prize? The odds are so slim, you aren't ever going to win it twice, i want to use my one time on an amount I'll never look down no matter how much richer i become.
