Tell you what I'm gonna buy 25 tickets, you know the saying somebody at some point has to win. If I win I have my own lottery for 25 strokers for the members here who have joined before yesterday. Gotta throw some of that legal info in there just in case, lol.

I keep forgetting the taxes and crap you guys pay.

And I've seen news reports of other investment firms doing it in the past when the pot gets big enough to outway the risk of having two winners.
Wow. Trusty Ted Turner. I'll have to give that a read later

i'm in. I buy a ticket every 5 weeks that has one set of numbers that are good for 10 drawings. that gives me a shot at every drawing. yeah the odds are crazy...but people win.

i look at it this way...I invest $16 a month for the chance at millions. Some say i am throwing money away but heck my lunch was $26 yesterday!

if i ever win...it will be the greatest investment i ever made!

Powerball Odds Are 1 In 175 Million. They also said there is a slim chance that no 1 will win lol.

But if you don't play, your chances are zero.

You have to also take account for all the winning tickets that did not win the top prize. I think having all the numbers without the powerball number still gets you 1 million.
