I don't think so, Kevin. I've never purchased a ticket in my life. No time to run out to do so when the odds of winning are infinitesimal.

I never buy them.  Although buying one would allow for a few hours of dreaming about what to do with the money- maybe worth the $2.00 just to dream for some!

I typically don't play powerball even when it gets high.  My husband surprised me by wanting to get a couple last night.  He laughs at me when I occasionally buy a megamillions (only a buck a shot, not the horribly expensive two bucks)

We occasionally buy such tickets just because it's fun to have a chance - no matter the odds.  We donate alot and winning the lotto and donating on a bigger scale (like donating buildings and huge amounts of money for projects) would be absolutely the greatest.

We have a group of agent, within our office, who throw in $2 each, and share a pool of tickets.  Clearly we didn't win last night.  Will we throw another $2 bucks??

You betcha!  As my father used to say "someone has to win... why not me?"

I was all set to , but then lady luck smiled my way. It turns out that I'm the only heir to a 21 Million cash estate located in Uganda according to Barrister Nyrobi . He found me thru a Google search and as soon as the $5,000 processing fee I sent him clears I'll start receiving Regular installments from my long lost families fortune ! I'd rather go with a Sure Thing !

The BILLION DOLLAR ANNUITY appears to be within reach for Saturday. I don't know if it qualifies a single winner for instant notoriety on the Forbes 400 but it will be interesting to watch. The jackpot rose once again to $800 million an hour or so ago. If it climbs again, before the end of today one winner could see a B-B-Billion on their annuity check. Tickets are sold until 10pm on Saturday night and the drawing begins at 10:59pm EST. Expect a frenzy but play responsibly!
