    Do you play?

    I buy a ticket every now and then (once or twice a month), only the big drawings, maybe a scratch-off every now and then.

    no lottery here. wouldnt do it if it was either. I like to have $20 in my pocket and know i have $20 rather then spend it on a ticket and have a chance of getting more.

    When the powerball gets big (its at $100 million right now) I will buy a $1 ticket at the gas station. Otherwise, not really.

    I saw a bumper sticker that said - " the lottery.. a tax on people who are bad at math"..

    Seeing as I am bad at math, I play periodically, and I like the instant tickets.. I'm lucky with those.

    I buy tickets every month. If you take all the money I spent and all the money I've won, I am a few thousand ahead.

    I usually get one ticket a week or so. If the jackpot gets really big I'll get a few bucks worth.

    sometimes I buy a powerball ticket if its over $200,000,000. Way I figure, if I am going to beat the 1 in a billion odds.. I might as well get really rich doing it.

    That poll needs a some times option. I have not bought a lottery ticket since last June or July.
