So you probably didn't win big in the latest Powerball lotto drawing. But does that mean you'll quit trying? Or will you still play?

    I enjoy paying the idiot tax. In fact I am all for voluntary taxes and pay my share. If only I could get away from the involuntary taxes I'm forced to pay...

    I have a dream. A dream to win half a billion dollars (after taxes) and build a brand new city somewhere in a very undeveloped part of the country. It will fit 4-6 million people, lots of shopping, entertainment, and lots of trees and parks.....

    It's pure luck, I know your chances of getting ran over by a car while sleeping in your bed at home are higher...
    But hey, if you don't play the chance of winning is 0.
    I oppose putting high sums on that, but a few dollars a week can not harm me.

    To me, blackjack is a much more interesting way to gamble.

    I won $12.00 in the Powerball.

    I've won $17,000.00 last year.

    Of course I will still play, I can't win if I don't play. Playing does not guarantee that I will eventually win, however it sure does improve my chances.

    I don't play the lottery. I hate it. It is a regressive tax (in effect).

    I've never spent a penny on any lottery, and I never will.

    There was like a 1/100000000000000000 chance of wining. I have more concrete uses for my money. Otherwise I'd cash my bank out and head to Vegas.

    Not often but a few bucks once in awhile. The odds are so forever not in your favor that playing it is just a big dream

    The odds are absurd. I'd rather see over 500 millionaires than one or two people winning and splitting over 500 million dollars. Too often people that can barely afford food will waste what little they have on this pipe dream.

    You can marry almost "ANYTHING" as long as you totally avoid the words "Holy Matrimony" . . . And you can smoke "ANYTHING" that will burn; in front of the Hall of Justice (SFPD-Station) @ 7th & Bryant . . . But when you want to play POWERBALL!! . . . NO Way! It's NOT Allowed! No Tickets are Sold Here!!!

    I will keep purchasing tickets on occasion. I think I would be content to win the 10 million or so that it starts out at. I don't need it to be 500 plus million. I figure I stopped buying cigarettes and I don't buy coffee at $4 a pop so I buy lottery tickets once in awhile and guess what I could actually get something back out of it unlike any of the other vices I and other people have, in fact I doubled my money on the last drawing.

    I too believe that playing the lottery is better then some of the other vices I have and I have actually hit on more then a few occassions for thousands. I haven't hit for what I call big (hundreds of thousands) money yet, however I am going to keep playing, because you never know what might happen. I believe one day it gonna's happen. And I will leave you with this, if I don't win I hope you do!

    Nope. I bought a ticket to that last one only because it was a record high. No more. It is $2.00. I used to buy it when it was $1.00. Didn't win then either.

    A wise man once told me: "The Lottery is a TAX for people who cannot add!" He was correct.
