Hey, forty million here, forty million there…it adds up.
Problem is without a ticket you can not win :-(
Problem is the states that are part of the multi-million power ball lottery have it worked out so that the prize will never reach 1 billion.
I won $2 with a $1 ticket. I spent one of those $ on another ticket. Lost. So I broke even. Decided to stop there. Had fun playing and didn’t wind up losing anything.
i’m not fussy. If I only win a cool million I’ll be more than pleased.
Chances of winning are about the same…
I BUY LAST WEEK’S TICKETS FOR 75% OFF. YOU HAVE ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME CHANCE OF WINNING.
A couple of winners and millions and millions of suckers, put that $10 bucks a week in an IRA or some other interest bearing account.
a girl at work collected from coworkers to buy multiple powerball tickets when the prize was sky high. we won only about $8. I asked her what she did with that money and she said she was unable to pay everyone anything since not enough. I asked why she did not just buy more new tickets with the money. her dumbfounded look told it all, she used it for cigarettes.
