You can all save your money. I bought the winning ticket.

Now, where in the world can I hide so no one can bother me.... Maybe I can buy Mexico.

Back when I worked at the kwiky mart I usually got a laugh at the people who would say "oh, I'm not getting a ticket till the jackpot gets to $XXX million"
I tried to explain to one of these customers once, "you know your odds of winning the jackpot don't ever change with the larger jackpot, but your odds of splitting the jackpot with one or more people does increase slightly as the jackpot gets bigger because more people play."
I don't think the person really grasped it.

Agreed. But I am the same way. I don’t ever play until its over $250MM lol… I know the chances are the same but for the same risk I get a higher reward / compensation – should I win…. Which still hasn’t happened yet…lol

Maybe so, but burning a few bucks when the jackpot is ridiculously huge is a bit more fun than trying to win a smaller jackpot every week.

Also because you are guarantee to waste more money if you try to win every week.

I'm a gambling man myself, and I enjoy going to casinos at least once a month, but this is the first time I have ever paid for a lotto ticket
