I play pretty much every day where there are jackpots over $20 million.  I live at the border of PA and NJ and can pick Powerball or Megamillion.  Right now NJ has a 27.5 million jackpot but that's rare.

PA used to have large jackpots, with Super 6 and Key ball but have replaced their game with the nearly useless Match 6 which I never play.  In general PA games are the least appealing to me since all recent ones involve state generated quick picked numbers through which one must sort.  I'd rather keep checking my tickets simple.

    Only if I'm in the store, which I probably am.  No reason not to.  Only draw game, as others in Pa. mentioned is Cash 5.  If there's a big rollover ($400,000 or more) I definitely try to make a special trip, or at least an excuse to go to the store.  And yes, a scratch ticket out of the machine, if I have any spare (dollar) change.

      Yep I play a daily Pick 6 on Sundays and also play the daily Pick 5 on Sundays when the jackpot is up there.

        IL has the pick-3 and -4 on Sunday evenings...no midday draw.  So usually I'll play 1.00 straight on my pick 3's since it's only the one drawing.

        I think I've only won once on a Sun. and that's because in IL it seems that Sun.'s are a doubles day in IL and I usually don't play them.

        Interesting post and responses.

         

        Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

            if i choose to play, i'll play on only tuesdays, wednesdays, fridays, or saturdays.  those are the days of the week in which i have had better luck, so i figure that if i don't have good luck on sunday, monday, or thursday, it isn't worth playing.

            I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                  I lot of people focus on whether or not a draw is held on Sunday. What difference does that make if you can buy tickets on Sunday for a draw held on Tuesday or Wednesday, it is still considered playing the lottery on Sunday.

                  By the way, I asked God if it cares if we play on Sunday and it said no.

                  Good luck,
                  Jake







                  In my own personal opinion, I believe it's a person's conviction not to play on Sunday especially if he is a Devout Christian 'coz Sunday is supposed to be Sabbath Day, a Day especially designated for THE LORD, a Day for everyone to worship and relax and be with family.  And is why it makes a lot of difference to some people. 

                  And GOD is not an "IT" 'coz HE IS THE SUPREME BEING, THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF LIFE.  HE sent HIS ONE AND ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS CHRIST,  to become HUMAN in order to save HUMAN.  Let's give GOD the respect and honor due HIM and not involved HIM in this.  I don't mean to debate... just want to HONOR GOD.  JESUS CHRIST has given HIS LIFE voluntarily for us on the Cross that all people who will accept HIM as LORD and SAVIOUR might be saved and have eternal life.  HIS BLOOD SHED ON THE CROSS WILL WASH AWAY THE SINS OF ALL REPENTANT PEOPLE!

                    Point quite taken devout lady but i really donot see any difference playing the lotto on any day. Even though sunday is respected as a Holy day what do you think about Saturday and the adventist. So what i say to you all guys there is a subconcious thing called conscience if it pricks you holla and donot play on your religious sabbath be it sunday monday tuesday etc.

                        I usually always purchase my advance draw lotto tickets on either Sunday or Monday evening. The grocery store I go to is almost deserted late in the day on Sunday and it's a very relaxing time to get my tickets at the customer service counter.

                        ... the lottery never fails to surprise!
