OK, Lottery fever has swept the nation. Someone or a group of someones is bound to win tonight changing their life forever...good or bad it will change.

Now I know I am not the only forum member here who jumped on the Lottery Wagon. I purchased $40 worth.

So here is what would be fun:

1: How many tickets did you purchase?

2: Tomorrow, come back to your post and update it with how much you won.

3: Then give us a + or - amount.

I truely hope one of you nail that Big Puppy and have nothing but a wonderful financial future ahead of you. More important, win or loose, I wish you the best of life ahead....because it ain't all about wealth.

Well, I did not buy any tickets. My lottery profile is not compatible for this week.
But, if anyone does win, good for them!

I bought 5 tickets and if you don't hear from me tomorrow it will be because I am shopping for my island.

(and the 25 M-2's that will be in the pillboxes to insure against uninvited visitors)

How far off the mainland? I think I'd rather have my own country!

I don't normally, but even with someone else splitting jackpot, and including losses to taxes, and excluding non-jackpot prizes, math says it's positive value expectation, so I dropped 20 on it.

I normally stick to scratch tickets here, but decided to drop a Hamilton on a few(5 total).

When I first saw the jack pot I was going to by $5, then I realized it was not powerball and FL is not in Mega Millions. :mad: Total spent $0. Total won $0. I saved $1.27 in gas! :D I guess I came out ahead.

I bought my normal amount for any lottery over $30 million- ONE ticket.

After all, it only takes 1 ticket to win. ;)

Between the wife and I, invested $10. Just found out it was a lost cause. Oh well, had the dream for a few hours. Good sense kept us from spending the winnings before the eggs were hatched.

No luck here, either.
Had a couple that matched 2 numbers, but not the MegaBall, so nothing.

I played our birthdays and 4 easy picks. I normally play a few bucks a week just in case lightning strikes. More for entertainment then anything else.
