I opted for number 3.  Before Tuesdays drawing I bought one QP.  Before Fridays drawing I bought 5 QP's.  Heaven knows how many I would have bought if they didn't win.  LOL

      Yea, but what if that mistake ticket had the winning numbers?  You could have bought Taco Bell.

                If you got 5 tickets and if these tickets were for Power Ball....then wouldn't your cost have been $10 and not $5?

                Are you sure you purchased 5 tickets for Power Ball?

                  I picked no opinion thats life in lottoland because someone usually wins I just wish that one or two of my tickets would win once in a while and for a big prize.  Been waiting for powerball to spit out a winner since 1996 and mega millions since 2010 here in oregon.-weshar75

                    I, too, feel like Oregons due to spit out a winner. Even a million dollar winner or two would be nice.

                          If it's not me then it's unlikely I know them or will ever meet them so why should I have any feelings about them at all?

                          I have enough problems dealing with my feelings about the people I know and meet everyday.

                            On Saturday I stopped at my favorite lottery place to buy tickets for Saturday Powerball and Cash 5, I was amused by a lady who came in buying gas, she overheard the cashier and myself talking about the lucky mega winner and she promptly said "I think the winners of these big jackpots should have to share the winnings with everyone and not get to keep it".

                            I said "did you buy a ticket? I wouldn't buy tickets if I was going to be forced into giving away my winnings and I doubt anyone else would either"

                            I then ask her why did she think she was entitled to the winnings of anyone who won? 

                            She said nothing else but if looks could kill I wouldn't be posting this and she stormed out of the store,  stupid people!

                              A lot of people who don't buy lottery tickets think that way.  Some years back before PB and Big Game came to the area Ohio had a game "Super Lotto" that paid jackpots of $70M+ that was played by Ohioians and many out of state players from neighboring states.  People got mad about so many out of state winners taking home jackpots that they convinced the state to limit the amounts that one ticket could win regardless of the jackpot amounts and people stopped playing and the game died.  People who think that way don't play lotteries.

                              Powerball had a similar idea one time, fortunately the idea died and the game continued.
