Scratch-off Lottery Tickets

Postby DbacksRback » Wed Jul 14, 2010 2:46 pm

I usually do a 2/3 dollar one for the hell of it during my lunch break but did a 10$ one today and won 50$ :-B. I know its a huge waste of money but its just fun sometimes. I was just wondering whats the most anyone around heres won on them?

I never buy them for myself, but get a few as gifts from time to time.

I remember when I was little, by late grandfather used to bring them for us whenever he visited from Muskegon. On a $1 ticket he gave me one time, I won $30. Nothing has ever come close since then. :-t

When I turned 18, I did the customary trip to the gas station thingy. I scratched off about a dozen free tickets before losing.

When I turned 21, I went the casino, won $200, and went out to find that my alternator had gone out. Bill: $180.

I live a charmed life. :-[
