I won on a scratch off! TWICE!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So I stop at a gas station to fill my car up with gas on the way home. I normally just pay outside because most pumps require you to prepay and I just don't want to deal with the crowd inside.
I went to a gas station that does not require you to prepay and decided on the spur of the moment to get some scratch off lottery tickets. I rarely buy them.
I was estatic that I won on the first one. It was only a $1, but I never win anything! Then I scratched off the second one and won $2 more! I didn't care that it was only $3!
Anyone else ever win on a scratch off? If so, how much have you won? How often do you get one?

Nothing more than like $1 or $2!

John's uncle always wins like $50-$100 at a time. NO FAIR I say!

I agree! Some people just get lucky!

The lottery has only recently been made legal here but no, and I'm not sure I will either. Something about the possibility of spending money and having nothing to show for it bothers me. There is a nearby casino though, a few months ago my dad and his wife won $1000.

Congrats!! 3 bucks is 3 bucks in my book!

Gambling is considered illegal here, to get a lotto ticket I would have to drive almost 2 hours, so I've never bought one!

My FIL bought my MIL a scratch and win for mother's day about 7 or 8 years ago and she won $50,000. Then a couple years about my FIL's brother bought a scratch ticket and won the top prize of $25,000. I sure hope this good luck runs in the genes !

The most I've ever won is $20. *pouts*

I won 20 bucks one time. We used it to go out to diner. We still play lotto and mega millions evry week. SO heres hoping

If I win, after I tell my DH you guys will be the next to know. Don't worry I would pread the wealth to all the little furbabies out there.

Good job! Every penny counts, right?? I won $35 about a month ago. I used to have way better luck though.........I would win %50-$100 everytime I played!! Not the case anymore tho.

That's great! Feels good to win on those, doesn't it? I never have won big but if I get an `urge' to buy one (which isn't very often) I always do because I'm hoping it might be my sixth sense talking to me

Actually, there was a lotto jackpot tonight and I had a ticket, so I could be 13 million dollars richer and I don't know it yet! I like to find out straight away but Max always leaves checking his tickets for a couple of days because, as he puts it, he likes to `prolong the dream' for a bit.

I rarely play, but the other day I decided to buy a $1 scratch-off and won $2 so I guess I doubled my money!

My MIL buys those for us occasionally. We've never won though.

Well in Ca I bought 2.00 ticket every pay day and I would win at times but here in Utah they do not allow gambling so since I am only 5 min from Pocatella Idaho I go there once or twice a year to get a lottery ticket fix

That winning you got is good for another go get it That is great ya won...

I got one for Christmas and one $50...That's the most I ever won...It's fun to win isn't it
post #15 of 25
I've won a few times, but only about $1 or so..maybe $2. Once I won $10, but blew it on more tickets

There is a woman I work with though who has won $10,000 TWICE in about 2 or 3 years. She is one of those people who seem to win and win big all the time. But, then again, she probably spends $100 a week on tickets

I buy the bingo scratch tickets quite often. Not like every day, but like once or twice a week. I had a time when I won about 10 times in a row and just kept getting another ticket with it until I lost. Twice I have won $50 and once my boyfriend won $50. I have gotten $5, $8 and $10 a few times too. The most I ever won was at a casino when I won $937.50

I rarely win on those. My grandma has won $2,000 from a scratch off on a few occasions (and smaller amounts here and there).

As far as the lotto...my parents won $10,000 from Powerball before my wedding. For months before he won, my dad kept saying, "Just $10,000 and everything will be ok. We just need $10,000." Talk about creating an order with God, lol. Of course, after taxes, it wasn't $10k, but still, that's money they didn't have.

I've only won like $25 tops from one but haven't bought one in a long time. I have a great aunt that picks them up "every once in awhile" and every time she does she wins a couple hundred bucks!! Too bad that luck doesn't run in the family!

The most I've ever won on a scratch off is $50! I was tickled pink!!!

Speaking of gambling. When we do win big like a few 100 here or there we never recall the fact that in the last 4 years this is all we have won and yet we lost double that LOL. sorry I had to say it

Actually, DH and I paid for our own honeymoon. The powerball money went into their savings, to replenish what they had spent on the wedding itself (I told my parents we didn't HAVE to have an open bar... ).

LOL I did not have an open bar either. I was told if someone was drunk I was responsible but if they had to pay for there own they where. I am glad the savings was replenished ...
