I buy tickets (5 numbers, random draw) for Powerball normally (once a week)...this is the 2nd time I bought 5 numbers for Mega Millions.
If you win, you win...if you don't, you don't.

If you win, you win...if you don't, you don't.

Roy, It would be real Cool, if we both peeled off a $100k win, i don't ever expect the big jackpot.. :thumbsup:

Actually, I'm pretty happy when I break even...

I remember the first time the Powerball went over 100 million. People were going nuts!! I recall reading about one guy spending TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS on tickets!!
Statistically, spending $10K doesn't really increase your odds over spending 5 bucks....not that much. And yes, the $10K buyer didn't win either...

Back in February, the winner of the Powerball lottery ($336 million or there abouts) was an 81 year old lady...one ticket.

Now, what would I do? Dunno, but there'd definitely be a property with more acreage in my future....doubt if the house would be any bigger though. Cars...nope, not into 'em anymore.

Last I heard (and it was over a year ago), I don't think the current owner would sell it!!
The 670 is somewhere in south western Virginia.

Anyway, neither then wife or I want a "bigger" house (I'd have a nice pole barn though!), so if another tractor was in the works, it'd be bigger...

I think I will throw $5 on some tickets. Never been much of a gambler. But $500 million is a lot of bucks.....

The only thing money can't buy is poverty.
