With the powerball jackpot so high, it got me wondering...

Do you or DH play the lottery?

If so, which games?

Have you ever won anything?


Good luck if you play tonight

Well, earlier this year there was the Megaball? and we went in on that and purchased 100 tickets....winning 17 dollars. We figured it was high enough to get in on the action and it was thrilling for the night. That is the first and most likely last time we will play.

We don't usually but bought a powerball ticket Saturday. DH says since today is his birthday we might have better luck so he is going to buy one today.

I never play unless the jackpot gets really high, such as tonight. Even then, I only buy a few tickets just to test my luck. DH doesn't like gambling so he doesn't play, but doesn't mind if I do.
The most I have ever won is around $10.

We play every now and again when the jackpot gets high. DH likes scratch offs too, but doesn't get them THAT often. MIL got us tickets in our stockings last year and I won $1000! Best stocking ever.

Holy cow! That IS the best stocking ever!

We don't play, but we just moved to a state with it. Hehehehe We might. We've bought tickets now and then, or scratch-offs, and we're definitely ahead in our winnings vs. losses. It's sort of fun to buy a ticket for the few minutes of "what ifs".

We never play, but when I lived in Wisconsin, in college, we would often play when it got high enough. I think my Dad secretly plays every now and again, though!

No. DH has in the past, but he knows it annoys me, odds being what they are. (I don't have a problem with gambling, but lottery and slot machines have such terrible odds I can't justify even a few dollars on them.) Our business includes a convenience store, and I cannot tell you how many PowerBall tickets we sold yesterday!
