If you go to Last Stop or Rosie's Den, you'll be spending at least an hour in line-- if you drive an extra fifteen minutes, you'll hit a couple of smaller shops
with NO lines. I went yesterday and it is worth the extra drive.

And as you are driving there, before you get to the Dam store where you buy the tickets, the restaurant/lounge on the right hand side of the street sells lottery tickets, so we went there yesterday. Took 10 minutes in line max. Easy in and easy out. Faster than the Beaver Dam store/bar.
As for it being closer or not to Rosies den that Cyborg thinks, it's closer for us to go to Beaver Dam, so we do.

Beaver Dam Lodge had a $1 million winner.

If you purchase 1 ticket your odds are 1 in 175 million. If you purchase 2 tickets your odds are 2 in 175 million. I am getting more confident about winning already.

I already am a billionaire and I think I may send Jeeves down to the QuickiMart and buy up every combination that exists because I'm bored today. I will donate the losing tickets to some needy family so that they can burn them for heat this winter.

My beef is with the size of the jackpots of Powerball and others. I would play more often if the odds were better, and the max jackpot was $100,000. Seriously, if someone won, say, $100,000,000 after taxes, what would you do with it all? There's just so many houses you can buy for people, big ticket toys, etc. You'd have to give most of it to charity or leave it to your kids, and God knows they'd probably make a serious mess of it.

A few years ago the Missouri Lottery Commission followed up on some past big winners. For the most part, they were either broke, unhappy or both.

All that being said, I will probably buy $5 worth of tickets today.

I am hoping that one person doesn't win and there are multiple winners. It would be silly for one person to win 500 million.

^^^^ Let me guess....you and Okie are also in favor of wealth distribution?


Why should you care how much someone wins/earns/inherits or what they do with it?

The reason some win big and go broke is the same reason some people will always be broke, no matter what...no discipline or knowledge/responsibility of how to handle money.
