  • I have a friend who buys those stupid scratch offs... and I was in her car and me and her daughter counted up to $300 wasted dollars from the ones laying in her car... her response... I won like $50! And she said that was just in the last few weeks. Definitly over buying sounds like an addition to me. I've seen a lot of places of work all pitch in a dollar or whatever and buy lottery tickets... and if by chance they get the winning number the money is split... that seems pretty healthy to me.

  • No we dont play but we do scratch offs. I like never win but my hubby wins like 5 bucks every once in a while. My dad plays the lotto but he only buys one ticket.

  • they don't have the lotto here (arkansas) but we used to play, we'd buy one or two tickets a week, i think we won $20 once but nothing major, and if we did'nt have the money, we wouldn't buy any tickets

  • I was joking with my dad and told him I wanted lottery tickets for Christmas. Well he got me 5 and I won $1 lol. I have played the lotto lottery a couple of times. I won $250 the very first time I played and I always play the same number. The second time I played it was off by one number and then 2 weeks later my number came out. go figure. I really think its a waste of money. I know people who chip in in pools and buy hundreds of them and if they win they split it. Weird lol.

  • Yes, I play Mega Millions. I also play Publishers Clearinghouse whenever I get it. Who knows maybe one day I'll win. I'm only dreaming though, I know.
