    With a $425 million Powerball jackpot now up for grabs Wednesday night, people are lining up across the country with dreams of money, money, money.

    " really want that Powerball," Tony Hanson of Georgia said.
    In 2006, eight meatpacking workers - called the "Nebraska 8? - struck gold in Lincoln, Neb., with a single ticket chosen by a computer. They won $365 million - the biggest lottery payout in U.S. history.

    Oh yes, I have played but only when the payoff is ridiculously high like $350M plus, and I do not pay more than $5 a pop when it does happen. So with the change of each combo is $2, now I only get 2 combos as opposed to the 5 I was used to. I believe I stated in another thread that if I put more than $20/year or so in the lottery then I should be committed.

    Basically, my philosophy is to take quick pix when the payoff is exorbitant and if I win, so be it because you cannot win if you do not play, but I am not one of those people that keep playing ALL the time hoping against the odds. Those are usually the people that spearhead the huge jackpots anyway. Actually I feel sorry for those that pour a lot of money in a hope and a dream in this fashion. I'm pretty sure you have your few that the "stars align" and they win and think they have a system, but they are fooling themselves along with others they are relaying said system to.

    And yes, I did pick a couple of combos on this past one, $4. Even though my contributions are miniscule in comparison to some others, I do look back and say to myself (when I do not win, which has been every time lol) "I could have done "this" with my $4."

    I just laugh at strategies to tackle completely random events. Sorry, just being real here.

    Just thought I'd asked, you were laughing so hard, lol... maybe someone will now adopt your strategy, it sounds very reasonable.

    Take care houserunner, nice talking with you again...

    lol

    I just call it what I do but I guess you can call it a "strategy", but at least I do not coin it "a strategy to win powerball".
