I'm in a lottery pool at work. I pay $2 a week, and we play only Sat draws. Any winnings we get go in a slush fund that gets paid out once a year, so even if we only win a little every couple of weeks, we get something in the end.
I also occassionally play on my own, but I never win anything. I prefer playing the Pay Day lottery when I have a few extra dollars instead of 649 or Super 7 as I figure there is more of a chance to win.

I don't buy them, and my husband does very very rarely. Only when the jackpot is huge.
I was turned right off of them after working in a convenience store when I was younger. Seeing the same people coming in and spending literally hundreds of dollars a week on them. Seeing the addiction in people was enough to make me never want to start buying them.
Sure you can't win if you don't play, but I've heard that come out of too many addicts mouths.
Oh, I play the scratch ones for fun if I'm given them for a Christmas present.
I just bought one for the first time in a long time. I dont buy them often, a few times a year. My dad has won before, anywhere from a few thousand here and there, then $263,000 one year. He wasnt the only one that won that draw darnit, but he got the second biggest prize.
I dont understand people who pour tons and tons of money into them though......would probably be better off just to buy one, and put the rest into savings. But, not my money, and they make the jackpot bigger right?
