Aggravating. Nothing like waiting behind a gambler and listening to "You're a Winner" twenty times in a row. Go to Vegas, I gotta go to work.

Buying two tickets for the pot though, as you point out, is a lack of understanding probabilities,,,

I played in college once and was watching the live draw on tv circling the numbers on my ticket and just like they were shooting a movie as the ball would pop it was a number on my ticket... and they came up in order... left to right... I forget exactly but if I needed to get 6 numbers I got the first 5. I thought I must be rich but it was like $100 if I remember. Maybe only $50. I remember I cashed it in at the convince store and bought a case of beer and some gas.

We play at work now a big pool of us. One time we had all but one number again and that time the guy that picked the numbers for that ticket had used his "lucky number" in that string of numbers and that was the one that didn't get picked. Kinda funny.

Another time at work we had all the numbers and would have won but each number was of by a count of one. If the winner was 01 12 22 34 55 67 we had 02 13 23 35 56 68. That one hurt.

A friend of mine won 1 million on the Maine state lottery years ago. He was already a millionaire.

I have never bought a lottery ticket. I do buy raffle tickets for Fire Departments, Churches, NTA, etc but I will be darn I will buy a fundraiser ticket for the state of New Jersey. The state fundraises off me enough (for starters over $13,000.00 per year just for my house) !!

I think I either won $100 or $50 once. I can't remember. It was a scratch off but I don't play the lottery very often. I think it's a waste of money. I'll play the big lotto's when it's super high but normally, that's about it.

Wife bought tickets with a pool of people at work 30 years ago. The group won $4,000. I think she walked away with $150. I once won $4 with a pool at my work. I "invested" it back into the pool and lost it all.

My first cousin won big on some kind of scratch off. He gets $150,000 yearly for, I think, 21 years. Personally, I think I won 50 dollars one time.

Lol....best I ever did was a bunch of years back.

Came home one day and there was a message on my answering machine. Kinda listened to it quick.
" This is so and so , please call me , you have won a prize "

Yeah , right.....deleted the message.

Couple days later , I'm watching TV and the phone rings." I'm so and so and you have won a prize." I'm half listening and watching TV. I'm thinking what is this person selling ? Vinyl siding , replacement windows , new roof ?

Turns out I won a 2004 Polaris ATP 500cc quad and a nice Aluminum trailer that could haul 2 quads from the Pennsylvania trappers assn. It was the grand prize. Worth together about $9000
I had been to many sportsmen's shows over the years and had bought tickets at almost all of them to help out various causes like trapping , hunting and NRA things. Never really thought I would win much , just wanted to help.

Had to drive out to Pennsylvania to pick it up , but that wasn't a problem.
Mucho thanks to the Pennsylvania trappers assn for the win.
