it cracks me up why people won't play it until it reaches 200 million or more. they wouldn't even want to win that much if they think about it. people don't want a paltry 10 million so they don't play that week makes no sense. it doesn't make much sense to play at all but you have to cover it and play every drawing no matter how much is in there. why limit your opportunites to win lottery by only playing when it reaches large jackpot. you're much better off playing the smaller individual state lottery games that "only" pay off between 1-10 million. not as many numbers to pick and less competition to hit them.
