I buy tickets for MM or lotto the day of the draw. Some say they buy asap. Has anyone noticed a difference in wins when buying tickets especially QP's?

    The best time to buy tickets is when you have the money. It's that simple.

      I say the moment u are feeling lucky and/or when some amazing positive event happen in your day or life.  Go immediately and buy your ticket!!

        The best time to buy is when the advertised jackpot is in the $350 to $550 million dollar range. The tickets will cost the same as when the jackpot is smaller, the odds will be the same as when the jackpot is smaller, and if you happen to win there's still a fairly good chance you won't  be sharing with anyone else.

                 Do not procrastinate. When the jackpot is high like at the $350 million mark or higher then beat the crowds and buy early before there is a line. Why wait in an hour long line when you could have purchased your ticket in a shorter line.

                          .

                          Mr./Ms. Kesadia,

                          I always buy my tickets 1 week ahead of time, every week.  I buy both games for every draw.
                          It also explains why I'm quickly going broke,

                          Just jump in, whenever you're ready.  Your odds of winning are still the same.

                          Groppo

                           

                          TO ALL PERSONS:

                          GOOD LUCK ON THIS EVENING'S DRAW. IF YOU USE SLIPS, THINK CAREFULLY, AND EXTRA-HARD ON THE NUMBERS YOU PICK. 

                          • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                          • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                          • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                                    (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

                            By the way what state do you live in? I would buy the MM just before the 7:45 PM closure on Tuesdays and Fridays draw and PB just before the 7 PM closure on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Their draws start at 8 PM on those days.

                            I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                              The best time is to watch some of the decent players who try to figure out the numbers in the challenges for either or mega millions or powerball.   It all depends which players are hot.

                               

                              Tonights drawing I should have payed more close attention to a few players. 

                               

                              I sense someone on this site will hit a huge jackpot.  Then again I don't play too often.
