    I always buy $5 dollars of Quick Picks when the prize amount exceeds $100 million.

    The odds are stratospheric but, my philosophy is simple: someone is going to beat the odds and win the jackpot so why not me? Plus, you can’t win if you don’t play so why not?

    I plan to buy a few tickets too. If I win, my family will be taken care of for life. What a wonderful gift to leave them.

    Can you even imagine it? The answer is, of course. I plan to buy $20 quick picks this time! :-)

  4. I just bought two tickets this morning.

    We have an office pool of 15 people. All of us contributed $10, so we have 150 plays. The tickets are photocopied and the copies signed, with each of us holding a copy. The originals are in a payroll safe at work.
