      Do you play the lottery? Did you win any prize or money? What have you won?

      I used to play the lottery but the most I ever won was £10. I haven't played in a long while even though I know I should really as they say you have to be in it to win it and I am never in it so how can I win it :)

      Never know I may go back one day and win something, we shall see :)

      I play when I remember and there is no queue to buy ticket.
      I am the worlds worst at queueing :)

      Only the large power balls, usually the over 300 million, it's like champagne taste and a beer pocket book, I usually win or break even on the lesser scratch offs, at times I started the day spending 10 dollars, by noon I had made 50 from that initial ten and by the time I was driving home from work I had already lost everything. The only good thing about scratch offs, the state post the prize amounts paid out and you can actually see the amounts still remaining in each game, they change every 90 days in this state and a new one starts. So you can at least look and see if you want to buy a particular scratch off for any game. The key is to not get hooked on spending monthly budget money thinking you are going to make money, it's just a good pick me up when you're driving to work thinking tomorrow I might be able to stay home :bounce:

      I can't legally play the lottery but I think scratch odds are fun!

      I bought a few lotto tickets before, I did not win anything.

      Nowadays I avoid these.

      I only play the lottery when there's a big Jackpot on them for exactly if The Jackpot is $10 Million or above that's when I give it a shot.

      The most I have ever won is $30.

      Tomorrow there will be over 400 million up for grabs for the US powerball, I got 5 tickets or 10 dollars, if a person is going to waste 10 dollars, 400 million is a wonderful gamble. Remember last month some lucky person here in Florida won 500 million as the only winner....so someone will win this money eventually. It won't be me but only because I wasn't lucky, not because I wasn't smart enough to take a small gamble that would pay tremendous rewards.
