C'mon, spill. I won't turn you in to the IRS.
Every lotto ticket I buy, has some sort of winning denomination to it.
Most I have won is 300 $$ on those nevada tickets.
My dad is the same way.
I won a year's free use of a Chevy Caprice in 1976. It sat in the showroom with different denominations of money taped to the inside of the windows. You were to guess the value of the car including the money. I guessed $7629.00. I was 69¢ under the total.
A few years ago I won a giant Christmas stocking from a local supermarket. It was loaded with Coca-Cola sponsored stuff like an inflatable raft, a swimming ring, a basketball backboard and a bunch of t-shirts, socks and knick knacks. I was known as the Coca-Cola kid thereafter.
The most I ever won on a lotter scratch-off ticket was $45.
No when my ship finally comes in. I will be at the airport:biggrin1:
$150.00 last weekend in Atlantic City. My first time in a casino, believe it or not.
Limbo contest - age 8
Dirty dancing contest in high school using similar moves.
@ casino turned 25.00 into 48.00, woo hoo
Countless millions if my spam mail is to be believed.
I won $35 in the Powerball.
Got a lawyer to let me fuck her a couple of times, too. Thought it was nice at the time, but it wasn't worth it. She wound up doing what lawyers do. To me.
Those nickel slots really pay off.
Sic Bo, actually won four rounds lost one and I quit.
I can't sit at those slot things, I don't wear depends.
Royal Flush at the Bellagio on a video poker machine=$1500
A week later I got another on a nickel machine=$250
I do terrible on scratch-off games. I'm lucky in love and mostly unlucky in contests or gambling.
News I can use...
I won $1000 in Shopper's Drugmart Giftcards a couple years ago...
I do usually win on my lottery tickets, but nothing big...
I won quite a few prizes for colouring contests when i was younger... i guess i was pretty good..:smile:
a parakeet at a local carnival when i was about 8 years old. thing lasted two days after i brought it home. guess it preferred life on the road.
I won a fair lady.
I like to go to the casino occasionally, and most of the time I win because the only game I play is blackjack, and I've gotten quite good at it. :biggrin1:
My wife keeps winning free plays and so will pay $2 and then keep getting into the following 6-49 draws for several weeks in a row. It's quite amusing.
I used to work with a guy who steadfastly played lotteries for 20+ years. I asked him how he had fared. He thought he had done pretty damn well compared to most people who played. He had at least broken even.
Break even? Hell, I said, I don't even play and I break even.
To each their own. State lotteries really are totally voluntary taxation.
Back in 1999 my oldest brother sends me an instant message from Florida asking me for 6 numbers for their lotto. I gave him the numbers. 2 years later my mother was visiting and she asks if I ever hear from my brother at all.
I told her not for a while. She says there is a reason for that. The numbers I gave him were the winning numbers in the 90 million lottery that night!
He never played them!
That's the closest I will ever get to actually winning the lotto.
I won a pie eating contest on the 4rth of July, when I was 7 years old. I won $5, as I recall. My parents didn;t know I had sneeked off to the park where there were events going on, and I was punished. I did get to keep the $5, though.:biggrin1:
Everything after that has been pretty much a loss....
I won $100 in a drawing at the new local 2 pump gas station 20 years ago. So I used the money to buy gas at the station. The station didn't make it, the pumps and signs are gone and most recently it was a beauty parlor with room for one chair. Now the building is empty again.
As far as the Lotto is concerned I haven't won any money, oh there were a coupl of ones a bit over $100 but it all got plowed back in, so, all in all I haven't won anything. But the way I look at it is if I buy a lotto ticket, I get a little bit of hope and for $1 that is a cheap price to pay.
