I don't buy lottery tickets. It's official that I'll never win any lottery......


  

 

I will not pay $2.00 for one ticket.   

 

I will sometimes buy the $1 ticket for the state lotto which still has over a million dollars in the pot.

Do you all pick your own numbers or a Quick Pick?

 

I always would pick my own.

Re: Did You Buy Powerball Tickets

I bought a ticket last week when it wasn't this high and another for this week. I did NOT have one number either week. I never played until now.

 

Here is a tip for those who play regularly- I heard on the news that 70% to 80% of winners in lotteries let the machine pick the numbers (which is what I did).

Re: Did You Buy Powerball Tickets

Well, from what I read on our local news site this morning, if it's accurate, is that we'll all have a chance to do this again.

 

They announced NO winner for last night's drawing.  Saturday's night's drawing will be $676M or something like that.

 

Off to the store I go to get my tickets!


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

There was a winner.  I matched the last number on my ticket which I think gets me a whole $1.   Woo hoo!  I have no idea what I'm going to spend it on.

Hubby does when it's an insane amount.   He hasn't packed his things or disappeared so I guess he didn't win.

 

I like scratch tickets myself.

@silkyk  Family members only so I'm hoping my genes eventually kick in.  My Grandmother was a literal statistician with legal pads filled with the winning numbers and what numbers hadn't been out yet and what she thought were due.  She ended up finally hitting the Fantasy 5 back in the day but was miffed because two other people hit it with her.  She still came away with a nice little sum but 'all that work for nothing'.  LOL  I'll take her work for nothing anytime.
