Scene 1: You bought your PB or MM tickets like you always have, but this time when you check your ticket(s), you see that you have the PB or MM# and 1 match...2 matches.....3 matches...(your pulse quickens and you begin to breathe heavier) ....4 matches.....holy sh*t you got all 5 numbers plus the PB or MM# and won the jackpot. You start screaming and running around your house. Hurray!BananaDanceHyperPanic sets in Eek...what do I do now? 

Scene 2: You contacted legal and financial advisers and collected your money. Your money is in the bank and now YOU'RE RICH!

Do you keep playing? 

Only when the Jackpot exceeds what i won so that i can remain in the top X.

    Perhaps for actual fun but definitely would depend on the amount

            Some of those that posted a reply said that after a jackpot win it would game over for playing the lottery while others said they would continue to play.

            Think about golf pros or tennis champs. After they win "The Masters" or "Wimbledon" they are right back there to try and win the next time.

              I Agree! Never say Never. Eternity is quite a long time.

               Most LP Members have a lottery budget. When they win big they will just increase that amount by a reasonable amount.

                      And, if you were lucky enough to win another jackpot, you could donate the whole amount to charity.

                        Giving the whole thing away to charity- not a bright idea if you ask me. As loving and caring as Jesus was, his disciples carried a money box and l have yet to read of him donating all the money to charity & he was no fool.

                        Judas was in charge of the money box if any of you are wondering. .

                        People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

                          I would still play if I won a large jackpot.

                            Most claim they will still play after a huge win, speaking for myself I don't know yet. If a major win crosses my path I'll decide at that point.

                              I probably would;  not as often, but like Music* said, having more money to play wheels and, as others have said, more as entertainment. I certainly wouldn't fret over missing a drawing, though.

                              A yr. or two after the Texas Lottery started, they aired a TV commercial with two past winners.  They were both older men and the advert was funny; they sitting on the porch and were arguing about who was going to be the first one to win the lottery a second time.
