PowerBall is finally in the range it was designed for, MegaMillion will just have to sat on the sideline until this run is over.

I'm tempted to drop $60 on this one but experience informs me that its not a guarantee that I will win much with that kind of purchase so $9 is all I'm spending. Good luck players. Thumbs Up

Now Powerball is finally getting exciting to play. I now have the urge to splurge on this game! Instead of 1 or 2 tickets I will probably buy a total of 5!





Thanks in advance for my winning jack-pot ticket!

The temptation to spend more is haunting  me too. Thank god tho, they made POWERBALL $2.00 otherwise I'd prob spend $20-30 bucks on this game at the current jackpot prize level but that extra dollar keeps me in check and actually helps me budget to spend less.



I went crazy and spent $127 when Mega Millions got over 600 MILLION and I never spend more than $5-$10 per game EVER when it's below $300 MILLION.


With that money I'd start a part-time professional drag raging team (Full time if I land a sponsor).  Well that, and I would arrange to finance a photoshoot of my favorite UK glamour models in my house for a week. Wink

I took some time off from playing and it looks like I'm coming back to the game just in time.

I'll be looking to spend a lil more than $6 come Wednesday.

I dropped $35 on that MegaMillions jackpot and won absolutely nothing. I was so mad!

I bought a $6 Powerball ticket for last night drawing, and I won $4 for a total loss of $2. My coworkers did a powerball pool for last night drawing. They bought like 50 tickets for a zero return. I was not included in the pool. They also collected the money for Wednesday drawing , and they did not ask me to participate. Good luck to them.

You should demand to be allowed in the pool in case they win.

Then you can sue them for some kind of discrimination and have swarms of slimy, squirming, slithering lawyers descend on them and envelope them in an undulating, squirming, writhing, slithering ball of slime.

And become very rich.

Along with the lawyers.

The thing that I actually hate when it gets this high is that, when I wake up the morning of each drawing, I actually think I can win it. For some reason my mind feels the need to think it's a winner just because nobody else has won in a long time.


Lol still recovering from buying 600 Megamillions tickets .

You always say that.

Then afterwards you say you bought $20 worth.

Why you all the time be doin' like that?

New here. Since the jackpot is over 300 million, thought I'd post and share.


Just bought my tickets for this Wednesday's $305 million drawing.                                                                  Got 500 lines, so $1,000 worth. $2 per line.

I obviously don't normally play this much for a drawing but I feel lucky and the high jackpot amount got me to open the wallet. I'm probably a fool but I REALLY want to win this jackpot. What's the old saying, "You can't win if you don't play" or something like that. 

About $150,000,000 after taxes sounds good to me. I'd buy a lakefront mansion, a fleet of fancy cars, vacations to maui, fiji, bahamas, etc... I might even look into buying a gulfstream jet in the range of $5-10 million (used) And I would donate to charities as well.

I have seen past winners go broke so I have planned against that when I win. I will spend a few million right off the bat to get it "out of my system" and then put the rest in tax free bonds and have it managed with a private bank of professional money managers whom I'm sure would roll out the red carpet for a client like me with over $100 million in cash. 

I wish you all luck but at the same time REALLY hope the winner this Wednesday is me. 


Thumbs Up


Its going roll 4 more times.

lol   $1000 dollars!!!  I feel I am spending too much when I buy two (as opposed to my normal one). I would buy fewer tickets and get the powerplay vs 500 $2 tickets.

I am always aiming for the second prize anyway.

In response to hotslot3

Best of luck to you hotslot. Welcome to LP!


There have been many members on this site who have "invested" similar amounts and more, when jackpots started climbing into the stratosphere.

I'm certainly not going to discourage you from making that wager, I admire your willingness to put that much on the line.

To my knowledge however, I don't remember any of those members getting much of anything for hits, it was pretty much a big goose egg.

As long as your able to lose it all, without any financial repercussions, you should be just fine.    Cheers


It's just the morning after making such a bet, that can be bittersweet if nothing becomes of it.   Let It All Out

I'm glad I'm not that crazy yet. On the other hand, if you can spend $1000 on tickets, why would you want a jackpot win?

On the other hand, somehow I doubt in the trustworthiness of this post. As if it was true, you'd know that for $1000 you'd get 600 lines in august.


Another thought, are you a lottery agent, who wants to instigate enormous sales by showing what to spend to the bunch of lottery addicts?

$2 per line x 500 tickets = $1000     He/she did not get powerplay so the math is right.
