Default Mega Millions Jackpot Soars To $636 Million

Will you be buying a ticket?
Multiple tickets?
Are you a regular player?
Do you never play?
Does it need to be a certain amount for you to play?

Yea, the odds are more than the mind can imagine but you never know. It can be a short lived piece of entertainment for $1.00.

You gotta play to win!

If everyone here would send me just one dollar, I'll go buy all the tickets and watch the drawing tonight.
You can go to sleep early tonight and when we hit, I'll contact you in the morning, OK?

Hell yeah!

My mum tells me I'm one in a million so, my odds of winning are 258: 1.

Two bucks for those odds. Damn straight I'm playing.

I bought 10 quick picks. Like many others, I have thought of numerous ways to spend 636 million. Id have to take the annuity, that much money at 32 years old, and I'd be a dead man!

I've never understood the people that say "I win the lottery every week because I DON'T play!" or "The lottery is a tax on stupid people!"

Screw them. Are the odds crazy high? Yes, they are. But you know what? Somebody always hits that jackpot eventually. 636mil on a $1 ticket is the best return on investment on the planet!

Throw a couple bucks at it and you have a chance to live the dream. I'm in for 5 bucks every draw.

If you win I am going to figure out how to get a RK beating from you because I know that you can afford 1 million dollars for each blow.

I'm not a regular player, but I bought 5 QP's. The entertainment value of the daydreaming is worth the "poor peoples tax" for sure. I have already notified my facespace community that if I defriend them tomorrow, it's not their fault, its simply because not a one of them wears a monocle, and if I win, I simply cannot be seen with such lowlifes.

I'm really worried. My 19 year old daughter just texted me that she has just bought her very first lotto ticket.

I can't even think about that kind of money in her hands.

Just for fun, I did lay down $2

I sit down every night there's a drawing and try to guess all 6. Usually I get one, sometimes two numbers and then I say to myself well that's $2 I saved. That being said I'll crap my pants when I guess all 6 correctly sans ticket.

If it hits $1B I will put $20 on it.

Would anyone buy a ticket for everyone in their office or business and give them one? Or would the fear be that they would win, quit and give you nothing, while you were stuck with your job?

The irony is the expected statistical value of a positive response from the gift would be millions of times higher then the aforementioned scenario occurring. But sometimes statistics are overridden by the psyche, no?

I don't play unless the jackpot is over $100mm. I know, why waist your time on $20mm? LOL! You bet I bought in today. I hope to be the NC marine industry stimulous package for 2014.
