Back in 1988, I won $3,800 with two quick pick tickets in CA. I actually drove past a Quick Trip and a voice in my head told me to turn around and buy lottery tickets. Unfortunately, that voice has never spoken to me again.

In the lottery, $100.

I took a girlfriend down to Deadwood, SD for the weekend years ago and hit $3200 in a slot machine. I was waiting for her to get ready for dinner and hit the lobby to wait. I ordered a beer and threw $5 in a slot machine, I almost never play those damn things. If I gamble, I like Black Jack.

It was a quarter machine and on the 3rd pull, I hit something and the machine went nuts, lights flashing, bells, whistles, the whole nine yards. Some old hide comes running over and starts jumping up and down like a little kid in a candy store. She says, "YOU WON! YOU WON!" It took me a little while to figure out exactly what I had hit.

That's damn good money for a slot!

No doubt, because that was only the 2nd time I had ever put money into one. I bet I have only played them twice, after I hit that jackpot as well, for $5 a pop. It's just not my thing, even after the big score.

Last summer i was on vacation with my wife and mother-in-law and they wanted me to buy them scratcher tickets at a truck stop we stopped at. Bought 10 of them and gave half to my mother-in-law and half to my wife. Well, wouldn't you know my mother-in-law won $1000 from hers, but my wife didn't win anything. Then I get in trouble for not giving my wife the winning ticket! That's by far the most I've "won", and I didn't even get the money.

Back in 1990, I bought 5 scratch off tickets and got a free ticket, a 5 dollar winner, then an 800 dollar winner. After I sent the claim form in for my 800 dollars, I got a phone call from a radio station and they made a short commerical with me. I got it right on the second take. They even sent me a cassette of the ad.

I'll let you know after I check my MegaMillions ticket. Someone in Kansas has a whole different set of problems today than they had yesterday.

:thumb: They took $3,100 and gave you $6,900. Not a bad return on your investment!

no it wasn't - but i'm I like how the Government is zero part of the purchase, yet take a third, $6900 or not, it's BS.

$1500 on a quick pick back in the early 90's

Think I spent it on a weekend of drunken debauchery. :drool:

The lottery is not a valid investment strategy. I had a powerball ticket with 4 of the five numbers right and won $25.

I've won $1,000 on one of the $10 Monopoly tickets in Missouri.

I won $1800 on a $1 slot machine shortly after my 21st birthday, but proceed to piss it away playing a $5 slot machine after that.

$20 from a $1 scratch ticket.

The kicker... I bought it when I was 14. LMAO I asked the dumb ass at the grocery store which ticket was winning the most and she told me. I was more or less making chit-chat, but the next thing I know she asks if I want to buy one. I said, "sure"! I got home, scratched it, *BOOYAH*... a whopping $20.

I ended up telling my dad and he said that he would cash it out for me for 50%. I seriously think I was robbed on that deal. :hmmm:

I've won some money at Harrah's, (playing slots), but I can't remember how much. It wasn't a lot. I've won more money playing poker online & at house games.

What's the most I've won in the lottery? $0

What's the most I've spent on lottery tickets? $0

Amount of times I've felt like a loser hillbilly who gets off on lottery tickets. 0 times.

Great success.

$100 on Powerball almost a year ago. A tree fell on my house 2 days later voiding that win.

The only other time I "won" anything was when I got $100 at a slot machine in Vegas. I brought $100 with me, was down to the end of my money, got a $100 spin and walked away breaking even. I figured if you can break even in Vegas, that is good enough.

If we trow Vegas into the question, then I won a bit more.

Went there in 94 with a buddy of mine, celebrating my divorce from the first wife. I took $200 to gamble with and managed to bankroll the entire trip from my winnings.
I was playing mainly Blackjack and ran that $200 up to $1800.
I then started playing Roulette and managed to turn that $1800 into nearly $9,000 on a few lucky spins of the wheel. I have never been back to Vegas since then, but going back this May. Hope I have as good of luck this time.

If making $3800 bucks off of $2 bucks makes me a loser hillbilly, I'm quite happy with that description.

$35 off of a scratch-off ticket.

$49 on a lucky 7 scratch off.
My father in-law missed 7 million by 1 number in the early 80'2.
That was big back then so a lot of people played so second was worth about 3 grand.
He was going on vacation that week so he was happy it payed for it.
I would have been on suicide watch if I had come that close and not won.

$3. My wife won $20 once on a ticket that I gave her.

I'm way overdue for a big win.

When I won $3800 I missed $5 mil by one number. That was when you only needed like five numbers to win the jackpot. Now they make it harder to get bigger jackpots

$20 off a dollar scratch off, that probaby gave me back half of what i've ever spent on lotteries of any kind.
