I still play. I have just cut back on the amount I spend.

I play the same as before which is about $5 a week. I would imagine the individuals who are cutting back on their lottery spending are probably the ones who spend $20 or more a week.

I have been playing just as much.

Now is a great time to win the lotto. Prices on everything are low right now.

I've cut back and I didn't spend $20 or more a week.

Me too,

I've cut back and still not sure if I will increase it back to my original amount once the economy picks up.  I've saved well over $100 so far since I am playing $5 less per week and have not won anything.  that's $100 less that I would have lost.

Working where I do, I have notice that lottery sales have almost doubled just since gas has dropped so drastically!


I still play $1 per play for Mega Million and $2 per play for Powerball.Thats only $6 a week for 4 chances at a dream come true.Cheap thrills!

i can't say i really play any more or less but I do think i'm a bit more obsessed with it b/c times are tougher!


Still playing as much, but I don't play heavily on a regular basis. My play is up right now but the MM jackpot is high and I seem to be on a lucky streak with scratches.  I'm hoping the lucky streak will spill over to MM.

I play the same amount, I play by subscription so I have already paid. I have wondered about renewing my subscription, but why not it's only a few dollars a week and someone will win; and it could be me one week. I don't drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes, so this can be my little vice. As the revenue raised is public funds - everybody wins!

since the cost of gas has went down. I've probably play twice as much.  Not even dinner movie in NYC though.
