Default Anyone playing the lottery?

I already overspent on it. The odds are so against it but someone is going to win so I just have to try. Think I have a bit of a problem. Because of an app. I don't like a number I buy another ticket. I have more than my normal number of tickets. About 30 dollars worth. 3 different lotteries.

I'm just going to buy one ticket since the powerbowl by me is over $1 billion now. I don't normally play since the chances are slim and I'd rather spend the money on something I know I can use.

I usually don't play either. But today played too much.

I spent a $25 gift card on it...why not? 4 mega millions Friday that didnít win, 1 powerball yesterday and a total number of seven mega millions for the Tuesday drawing, thatís it for me, but normally I donít play. So itíd more than Iíd normally spend but you canít win if you donít play.

Well I didn't win a nickle. Ok I won 3 bucks on a state lottery I played but I'm still going to try for powerball tonight.

Default Re: Anyone playing the lottery?

I played Mega Millions knowing I wouldn't win..but the amount was so high I felt like it was just STUPID if I didn't play.

So today will be the same for the Powerball..OH it already passed never mind.
But yeah, I will buy tickets only when the jackpot is so high they make a huge deal of it...like this week...and I only buy ONE ticket as it only takes one ticket to win and I can't think of numbers for more than one ticket...LOL

I just use the quick picks. I've played my own numbers a few times but I just rather not right now. Hoping to win powerball now it's up to 750 million. Gotta try but it's getting expensive for me to try.

I pretty much only play in work pools. So far they are saying that it's not clear on tonight's Powerball.
I don't typically gamble otherwise. Some football playoff squares each January and pools like this when grouping together is worth it as far as splitting the amount. Names are taken, payments noted and copies made as a precaution and test of faith so to speak.
