Do you play the lottery?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Just wondering how many lottery players we have here. What games do you play...Pick your numbers and/or scratch off instant tickets? And how often do you play?


I basically like to play the mega millions game although I'm not a big spender, just a couple bucks a week, sometimes I get the scratch offs but I consider myself lucky if I win my money back! I can't pass up the opportinity to a least have a very slight chance to win some big money!!

Nope, don't play. Hope you win!

We get a X-Lotto ticket when they have big draws so probably 4 or 5 times a year were such big spenders but's thats about it here.

Never won anything so I don't bother!

I usually buy one or two tickets a month, the $10 scratch offs. It really depends on whether I have a really good tips after a night of serving. I actually won $1,000 once, which came right before one of my cats needed expensive emergency care. I win my money back probably 70% of the time. I won $100 dollars before as well. Maybe I just have good luck.

I buy a ticket every saturday. I still have 5 weeks worth of tickets that i havent checked the numbers against so i could be sitting here loaded and not realise!!

I'm making sure that i buy a ticket today because no one won it last week so it stands at £9 million!!

NC doesn't yet have a lottery, but everytime I've traveled, I've played in that state, just a couple of dollars, though. Where I used to live, the boarder to VA wasn't very far at all. I've played for the millions, and also the scratch off cards, but again, a dollar here and there, maybe twice a year. So far, the most I've won is $20. I'm convinced, though ,it's not if I'll win the lottery, but when!

I'm kind of weird. I want make my first million by earning it, so I don't buy lottery tickets.

Jerry and I play it whenever we think about it......oh, wouldn't it be great to win!

I've done it since the start, with the same set of numbers, so I'm stuck now. I mean, what if I stopped and I saw my numbers had come up?

My son gives me the statistics, against winning, but I tell him I may never win more than the odd £10, but I'm also buying the dream, where you think "If I won the lottery I'd do this, that and whatever". A bit pathetic maybe. But it's nice to dream.

I do mine on the internet so I won't miss a win (if I ever have one )

I play the National Lottery once in a while - no wins yet My Mum got 4 numbers one time, but she ended up only receiving £20!

I do play Scratch Cards and have won tonnes on it! I cashed in £98 the other week - the guy at the counter wasn't pleased at all!

The Redneck's Retirement Plan, as Jeff Foxworthy puts it.

Yup, we play Powerball. Earl always buys the tickets because he has good luck and I have zero luck. Not so luck yet...the most we've won is $7.

I do play the Lotto, but only when the jackpot gets big. I never play the scratch cards, because the jackpot is not enough in my opinion to waste money on. If I'm going to spend money on the lottery, I want it to be a life changing win.

I don't play the lotto, on occasion though I will buy a scratch off ticket.

I've never played the lottery, in any form. As a matter of fact, I've never gambled, unless you count buying raffle tickets for a charitable cause. One time I bought three benefiting a children's hospital, and won first, second, and third prizes. The first prize was a wine cellar, and the second a set of china - I don't remember what the third prize was. People thought it was fixed!

My mum gets the weekly national lotto perhaps once a month, and we get $1 scratchies nearly everytime we go to the supermarket the most we have won is $10 though!

I play 6/49 intermittently -- if I think of it as I'm passing a kiosk -- and if the jackpot is big. Never more than $5. Occasional Scratch 'n Win. The only thing I'm deliberate about is I put a QuickPick and a Scratch 'n Win in everyone's stocking at Christmas.
