Default Re: Any lotto players/winers here?

They sell these scratch off tickets here in PA called "Win for life" that you can win $1000 a week for life, and someone in my town won it. So I went one day and bought one ticket scratched it off, won $20, took $18 and another ticket (they're $2 apiece). Scratched off the other ticket and won another $20, again took $18 and another ticket. Scratched off the new one and got $40...lol. I took the $38 and another ticket but didn't win anything on the other ticket so I stopped $74 richer in like 10 mins. Thats about the luckiest I've ever been with the lottery.
I play the powerball from time to time but only when it gets up to like 150-300 million. I figure, if I'm going to play, why not play something that is going to change my life.

i won a decent amount on the french lotto - the 'joker' number- in 2005.
luck of the draw, the machine made the numbers up...

pity it wasnt the main lotto though. still, almost enough for a new appartment.
then the taxman hits you for a huge share a year after you invest in property...

My Dad Plays scratch offs all the time, And One Day I was like "daddy will you buy me one?" and i handed him two dollars

He bought me one, and I scratched it off, and It was a 50,000 dollar jackpot. He didn't even let me keep the money in a savings account, he went out and bought stuff for himself.

I really dislike that man
