    Anyone have any luck with the lottery?


    I've been working in mass a lot lately, and have a tendency to buy excessive amounts of scratch tickets when i'm down there, since NH tickets suck (only thing NH has going for it is Powerball). Just wondering if anyone has won anything significant recently, be it scratchys numbers or whatever else?

    I've never won more than $20 on one, but even that was a long time ago.

    I don't think too many people can beat my scratch ticket record... I've had incredible luck w/ em... like.. out of this world odds.

    money spent on scratch tickets - $0
    money won on scratch tickets - $7

    That's an infinite profit percentage. Beat that, motherfukkers!

    My uncle won one of the Anniversary Edition Sportsters on the HD scratch tickets.

    Of course, he spends $200+ a week on lottery tickets.

    Re: Anyone have any luck with the lottery?

    the idea of gambling on things that are completely out of my control just seems idiotic to me. I'll gamble on pool, poker, etc where if I lose its because I got beaten. Not just a random draw, not worth it.

    The way I look at it is "Your just donating to MA Lottery" but I guess you can't win if you don't play????

    I'd rather burn my money than give anymore to the state. Besides, it makes pretty colored flames.

    Lottery tickets are just a voluntary tax for the state .

    The lottery is actually a tax on people who can't really afford it. Think about it for the most part who buys the tickets. Anyone who can afford to buy them don't buy them thats why they can afford to buy them, then you have the people can't afford to buy them, are buying them and thats why they can't afford to buy them, because a fool and his money are soon parted

    Taxachusetts already takes enough of my money. It would be more fun to throw $1 bills all over the street and watch hobos fight for it.

    So does 1/3 of my salary and 5% of my purchases. And the city tries to make me shovel my sidewalk after spending 10 hours at work shoveling so the children can get a ride to school. Fuck the children.

    I've won $200 before, but that's the best I've ever gotten. I was pretty damn happy though.

    Re: Anyone have any luck with the lottery?

    Ive hit for 50, and a hundred. I buy one a week. My brother has hit for 1000 a couple times.

    At foxwoods I go and play blackjack. I aim for a 300 dollar win. If I lose, its no more than 600 cause thats what I go with, and then I dont go for a month. When I win I go more frequently. So since the beginning Dec I have been 4 times. Won, Won, broke even (lost 300 and won it back, called it a night), and Won.

    So I guess my point is, have some self control and hope to get lucky. Somebody does win the bigger jackpots.
