    I understand the odds aren't good at all, but I have been playing for 10 years... Usually buy one $5 ticket a week, and the most I have ever won on one single scratcher is $60.

    Doesn't make any sense... Even at casino slots you get an occasional $100, $200, $300 win off a penny slot.

    Any one else win over $100?

    I won 4k on a 5 dollar mega a decade ago, tbh. One number away from like 200m

    Don't buy tix anymore unless it's like 500m. I'm happy with my finances so not too interested.

    i'm no gambling man except when i was 7 yrs old... lol!

    i went to a spurs game, had my chore money in hand, and bought a catalog(i can't remember what they're actually called) for the game and ended up winning a spurs dufflebag & 2 box's of skybox cards.

    although i don't play the lotto i know quite a few lucky friends of mine who have hit some big numbers; i wonder what their ratio is of winning to losing over the years.

    Many better ways to spend $5 than on a worthless piece of paper. Like those steak beef jerkys they only sell at gas stations.

    Iíll usually buy about 3 scratch offs a year. But itís all within the same week because Iíll get an itch. Then after 3 duds, I remember why I donít waste my money on them.

    I never buy the mega lottery stuff unless itís an office pool after it hits the $100 million numbers. I donít want to be the only guy chose $5 over 10 million and have to show up the next day.

    Tax on mathematically challenged folk. Put 5 a week in an acct. 10 years you have over 2500.00. If you hit that much once you would likely feel justified in playing.

    So...scratch a date with your mom per week and I'll have enough for a late model used car with 150k miles after just ten years??

    That’s not really the point for all lottery players. There’s some enjoyment and anticipation to buying a $1 ticket with the chance of winning multi millions. And there’s very little disappointment when you don’t. Easily worth a few dollars here and there.

    I'd have probably lost less money on scratchers than the stock market this year, tbh. But then again, my picks probably represent a stupid tax.
