Buying more tickets usually does not work

Spending more than $1 or $2 on a lottery game for that drawing usually does not work to increase your chances of winning a big prize. You may though win more smaller prizes, like free tickets. It doesn't work because the odds are too high. An extra few tickets has little impact on lowering the odds. I have tried both over the years. Sometimes spending $10 on a lottery game on one weekend, other weekends just $1 or $2. I actually won a bigger prize on the $2 weekend play than the $10 worth of tickets, which all lost.
