$47.xx on a ticket Uncle Art gave me for my birthday a long time ago! :lol:

He was the lucky one in our family--and his father! Both were quite good at winning games of chance.

Then there's me. :sigh; That gene completely missed me! :lol:

74 for four numbers many years ago. We won 23.20 for two numbers and two lucky stars on this Friday's Eurolottery. Three numbers more and we would have had the 100,000,000!

We only do the lottery once in a blue moon, usually when there is a big rollover. Does anyone do it every week?

In Dec 98 we won 3655. This was for 5 numbers.We never ever watch the show and we had it on as we were putting up the tree. I got the ticket out and said to DH we are going to win tonight on this line. Had only done 2 lines and we never do the same numbers. Well sure enough we did win. It was a great feeling and we were able to pay back my MIL money she had lent us to put carpets in our new house.
Also have won 23.20 on this weeks euro.

Weekly? :eek: I'd be broke! :lol:

We have two large lotteries (The Pick & Powerball) that are drawn on Wednesday and Saturday. There also are two smaller ones (Pick 3 and Pick 5) that are drawn on two other nights during the week. I think. Could be three nights. I don't pay much attention to them!

Usually I purchase either a Pick or Powerball ticket around my mother's, Uncle Art's and my Aunt Norma's birthdays. It was something all of them enjoyed, with Uncle Art being the lucky one of the siblings! They all occur in February and March.

Beyond that, I'll typically purchase one during the summer and one during the fall/early winter period. Usually not related to the size of the jackpot, as they roll over more often than not. It's more I have $1 in change and no one is in line at customer service, which is where the tickets are sold! :D

About 1450 in 2001 so I took the kids with me when my wife had an exhibition stand in NY and then we went down the Hilton Head Island for a week and my wife joined us when the exhibition was finished.

I got 10 on Saturday and the same last Saturday but before thsat it was ages ago. We got 5 numbers in a work syndicate years ago, we all ended up with just over 100, we won around 75 with four numbers a couple of years ago.

I dread to think how much I have spent in the last 14 years though :shocked025:

Hmmmm not sure, maybe around $60? Herself plays weekly, but I don't much keep track.

Once when on a cruise I bought Krackets. They are like lottery tickets in that you pull back a tab, and your winnings are based on what is revealed. We won $1000.00. That was the most we've ever won on a game of chance. Went right on the shipboard tab too! :lol:
