Ugh, I read this thread too late. The winning numbers are exactly what I was going to pick for my ticket. Oh well, maybe next time.

Still debating - is it worth it to join a local town's FB lottery pool @ $10 each? Yes we essentially know each other and there'll be quite a few of us. Saw maybe 15 signed up so far.

Doesn't joining a pool defeat the goal of going for the big jackpot?

I'll pay $10 even if I can win $1000.

Without a big jackpot, there's no pool and thus less chances of hitting numbers.

I think wawa still has an any size coffee for $1 promo going. That's a better use of a dollar, and almost equal chances of becoming rich afterward.

You can't win with half a mega millions ticket.

Oh, that makes my deal even better. It's like paying half as much, getting a free cup of coffee, and virtually an equal chance of getting rich. I don't know why anyone do anything else.

Someone needs to win this damn thing so it starts over and I don't have to throw into our office pot when it passes my threshold of $250m. $5 a pop is adding up.

Your office needs to update their pool threshold. $250m basically happens every 2 or 3 weeks now with the recent-years' updates to both lotto draws. $400-450m sounds more reasonable.

It's my personal threshold of $250m. Lotto is like crack for my office. They all play regardless.
