 I just got back from the store, I purchased one Mega Millions and one Powerball lottery ticket. The jackpot between the two is over $2,000,000,000.00! Shocked

Is anyone else taking a potshot at the cash?

Yes, but I only buy one Mega if it gets over $500M.  Lucky if I get one number.  If I was truly cursed, I would win it...  Wink

My Powerball ticket was a loser, Unhappy since nobody won that jackpot (It's over $600,000,000) Shocked I'm taking another shot at it (Someone's going to win it). LOL

We have a nice home, we get a nice payment from Mama's retirement fund.  I'm not gonna spend a penny on this lotto mania!
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

I don't blame you since the odds of winning are ASTRONOMICAL (I read its over 300,000,000-1!). LOL Nonetheless SOMEONE will eventually win it, so I'm taking my potshots at them. After someone wins I will cease purchasing tickets until the jackpot tops $500,000,000.00 again (This is how I keep the LOSING at a minimum!)

I remember when the lotto began in the early 1980s a jackpot of over $5,000,000.00 made national news. Then in 1989 we had the first jackpot of over $100,000,000.00 (I took a shot at this and broke even!), Now we have passed the $1,000,000,000.00 mark. Shocked

Can anyone guess when we'll have a jackpot of over $1,000,000,000,000.00? LOL
