This might sound stupid but if "I"  were to win about $25,000 I would spend  about $700 Whenever there is a big jackpot.

One day it might come true.

    I would keep playing depending on how big the jackpot was.

    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.

        No way man.  I would continue to buy only one ticket per drawing, two if the jackpot is at least $100 million, and three if the jackpot is at least $250 million.

        I might spend 100 bucks on well picked numbers. I would wheel however many numbers it would take to try and capture and win the jackpot

          I only buy tickets when the cash value of the pot is greater than the odds. which lately has saved me a lot of money. When it finally goes over that amount I limit my spending to 150% of the pot (450 for a 300 mil pot). someone will always spend more than you anyways but the odds are so bad that an extra 20 grand wouldn't improve them that much anyways.

                    Heck I would continue to buy lottery tickets even after winning the jackpot.  Ofcourse I would not but any more then $4-$5 worth at a time (yes even after winning the jackpot).  I'm a firm believer that if you are going to win, then you are going to win even if you buy just $1 worth of ticket.  But after winning the jackpot, the chances of lightning striking twice are very very low, so I would still continue to buy tickets but I would not spend $100 like Jack Whittaker.

                      I would also keep doing the same thing I have been doing.....unless the jackpot got really high,,,,then I would by a few more tickets, maybe to cover most of the numbers.

                        Friends:

                        I would keep on doing what I'm doing... I would be like a lot of other folk's here. Heck, If I won, I wouldn't change a thing!

                        Just wanted to share something else with ya's. The person In Ava, Mo. that won the 3.1M, lives close to my Brother.

                        Now I can say at least I know someone who has won...

                        Chief

                        May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house. May  the Great Spirit bless all who enter there. May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows. And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.
