Question Has anyone here won on the lottery or scratch offs?
I am just curious Does anyone on here play the powerball or the megamillions have anyone of you won anything from it or knew anyone who did? What about the scratchoffs? My only luck was winning a hundred bucks on a scratch off called Hit a hundred. Does anyone have the online subscription to mega millions or powerball is it worth it??

In 2005 I won $500 on a $3 scratch-off ticket in CA. I've won $100 quite a few times when living there as well. The most I have ever won on a lotto ticket was $5 I think.

Here in MS they don't have lottery scratchers or lotto tickets. They do have these crappy pull tabs that I buy once in a great while since you rarely win on them but, I have won $50 twice.

Let's just say I've spent more than I've won.

I don't know what an online subscription to the lottery is. Assuming that you pay for it, what do you get for the money?

An online lottery subscription?? That sounds fishy, scammy and is outright illegal in many states. Be careful...

I've won some lottery prizes in the 100-200 range, but overall have spent way more than I won over the years, but my philosophy is it only takes ONCE to change your life...

Met a lady who won multi-million lotto up north who did it right. She took her daughter and moved to FL, leaving her old life far behind and set up herself and daughter in a really well protected (dogs, security, etc) mansion estate where she could run a business out of and she seemed to be really happy.

My ex had a new inlaw who won the Fantasy 5 years ago in FL, but she won it on the very first drawing after they changed the payout scheme completely so she shared a jackpot and won like 20k. If she had won the previous week, it would have been a few HUNDRED THOUSAND, so while she was happy, she was always bitter about the lost money.

I won $300 on a scratch off 1 time.

Most of the times I have won low ammounts.

Not much luck in the PowerBall MegaMillions but I play them.

One never knows.

We spent a week in the Smoky Mountains last week for my birthday. On Thursday on the way home we stopped in Georgia for gas, and just for the heck of it we bought five quick-picks for the Mega Millions. It was drawn last Friday, and when I checked the galottery web site I found that one of our numbers was a $150 winner! That's our biggest ever lottery win.

We've been playing $2 a week on Lotto ever since it started in Florida, and we've had quite a few minor wins, the largest being $72. And we've been playing an additional $2 every week on Powerball ever since it started in Florida early this year, and the most we've won on that so far is $7 (twice).

But "hope springs eternal..."

I won $10 on a $2 scratchy. I do not feel right buying scratch offs or lottery tickets though. I just do not think my luck will be there . And I am a very much a cheapskate.

Someday I start playing again though.

$500 on a $1 scratch-off. However, I've given back that much and more in the years since!
