do u/have u bought lottery tickets?

my state just within the last couple of years legalized lottery. we buy cheap scratch-off's every now and then, but it frustrates my dh that i am the only one to win... take the other day for example. he bought $10 worth, and won only $9. bought another $10 and won $2.... i took some cash the same day and bought 3 $1 tickets and won $32. he asked "how is it ur the only one that can win more that u invest." easy, i quit while ahead.

  • I buy the $1-2 scratch off ones sometimes. I won about $30 while I was pregnant in one day (we rubbed them on my belly lol).

  • Nope, I never have. I just moved from a state that it's still illegal to, to one that is legal and still haven't at this point.

  • Wow that sounds like such a waste of money. Yes we do buy lottery tickets. Usually once or twice a year and never more than a $1 ticket. We like to play the, "What would we do if we won," game, but we don't plan on winning.

  • Nevada doesn't have a state lottery, so we occasionally play slot machines. When we go to California, we buy lottery tickets.

  • I haven't bought tickets in a long time. We only used to buy them when the jackpot was really high.
