I play every week. Not on my own, but with a group of people at work.
I wish I had never signed up because now I feel afraid not to play! I keep thinking that as soon as I pull out my monthly $20, they will hit it big!
Anyone else play?
Any big wins?

I have actually only played powerball once (very recently) but i have an itch to play over and over again.
ill do scratch offs every once in a while. $500 is the most i’ve ever one off a $10 scratch off.

Darling Husband used to with a group of people online but I never have. He won little amounts (like $10 little) and it definitely wasn’t worth what he was putting in! I’d be paranoid too though lol like you quit the week before you would’ve hit the jackpot!
I think I’ve never played because I’m a pretty pessimistic person. I always think something is going to go wrong or I’m not going to get something that I want. So with that logic I just can’t make myself put the money in to play when I think I’m never ever going to win anyway.

I play every Friday and Saturday. I won $1600 2 summers ago when it used to be super 7 (before they changed to lotto max). I usually get $20 here and there. I don’t play with work.

@totheislnds: I love scratch tickets! I never win though! I used to buy them a lot of my mom. I think she has a problem though lol.
@Running Elley: We have won $20 every time for the last few weeks. We just put the money back into the pot though for when the jackpot is bigger.
@couawilou: If I would have won $1600, I would have crapped my pants! I would probably just put it into savings, but it would still be awesome!

I have played twice in my life and both times I lost at the powerball. I work too hard for what little money I have…now I have a major yarn/fiber addiction.

Darling Husband and I play the Lotto Max on Fridays, and he’s part of a pool with work as well. We’ve gotten a ton of free plays and several $20 prizes.
Funny story: Darling Husband normally only plays other lotteries when the jackpot gets really big, but his birthday is July 7 (07/07), and one year there was a draw on his birthday for a $7 million jackpot. Thinking maybe, just maybe it was a sign, he bought a ticket…and won 7 dollars. LOL

@tranquility: Did you hear about the guy who is suing his coworkers for a share in their lotto winnings? They all played together every week and the one week he was out sick they won. He’s saying that they should have covered for his weekly contribution when he was out sick because they’ve been playing together every week for years!

@tranquility: I had a statistics teacher who said that you’re a winner by not buying a ticket. lol

@tranquility: yeah I didn’t even think about savings lol what is that word? lol I blew it on my vacation at the time teehee. I do love my scratchers though, I play bingo all the time and always get my money back. I love going to Bingo halls but Fiance doesn’t, he get’s so lost that I have to do his cards plus mine.

@linguo42: HAHAHA that is too funny!!!
@MrsMcGyro: My secretary is the one who does the lott for us and always covers if I am away.
@PutABirdOnIt: I know we will never win, but it is nice to fantasize every friday afternoon about coming in Monday to an office that we will never have to work in again haha
@couawilou: I’ve never been to a bingo hall. I might actually consider doing this as a date night though! It might be really fun!!!

Nope. I never gamble. Not on stocks or lotto or anything else I can’t win 🙂
I am what is known as a risk adverse person. 🙂
