Does winning an extra ticket count? LOL. I like to think of myself as being rather lucky, just not when it comes to those darn things.

My fiance won $50 once..that’s the most I’ve seen.

I was watching an episode of True Life the other day and a boy won $1,000 per week for life from a New York scratch off.

No, I wish!

I’ve won more on slot machines but the most I’ve won in one sitting was maybe $400 or $500 ish, quite a few times actually!  DH is probably about the same as me on slot machines, but maybe up to $1000 within an hour period.  But he has won much more at table games in a single session but those take some talent/knowledge in addition to luck.

I’m really the only one of us with a love of scratchers, even though I don’t get very many.

One of my friends received some car sales promotion (like come in and turn the key or match the key or something) and it turns out they had won like $100,000.  They were just past the expiration date though.  I think that one hurt.

@boogiewoogies:  Not me, but my co-workers FIL won the “Set for Life” scratch we have here.  It’s a grand prize of $1000/week for 25 years or a payout of $600,000.  Also here in Canada there’s no taxes on winnings so it was a pretty sweet windfall.

I wish!  I once won $50 and danced around like I had won a fortune. I was 18 and $50 was very welcomed haha

@boogiewoogies:  I have not. My dad won $50,000 on a Bingo or something a few months ago, though. The best part is that it’s not taxable income, so he gets to keep all of it! I wish his luck would rub off on me.

Nothing. Not even an extra ticket!
