    Did you buy a Mega Millions/Powerball ticket?

    Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is at $432 Million

    Tomorrow’s Powerball is at $410 Million

    I bought $20 worth of tickets for each. I know I’m just throwing money away but at least I can dream for a couple of days.

    Would you take the cash option or the annuity?

    The financial experts say take the cash option and invest.

    No lottery in Nevada; I'm about 50 miles from the lotto store at the stateline.

    I'm not worried about China flu but I do know that traveling that distance, you're around 70 times more likely to die in a car crash on the way there or back than you are to hit the jackpot.

    True

    Every time the jackpot got up there we’d buy around $200 worth of tickets at work

    Now everyone telecommuting so no buy ins

    Whatever floats your boat. Instead of 1 in 300,000,000 mill chance you got a 50 in 300,000,000 mill chance. 🤷*♂️

    Bought some a few times last month but I’m taking a break again. Got $6 back once thanks to the multiplier, but bricked the rest. Good luck all!

    That's what I do if I'm in a state with lotto; if it gets over $300 million, I buy one ticket.

    If I could go back in time after the numbers are read I'd buy the winning power ball ticket every time

    The night you found out you’re numbers hit you would get a personal loan so that you could get a kilo and some call girls?

    Then you would invest smartly
