Default Who's Playing The Lottery

I can't believe I didn't see a thread on this already ... if there's already one ... oh well

We had a group at work go in together, and my wife and I are going to put 20 down later to hopefully win it all.

Who else is putting into my winnings?

I only gamble on things I can control, like poker. Lottery is just dumb luck.

I might swing by and pick up some tickets after work. Some rando in Iowa or somewhere like that will probably win it..

Default Re: Who's Playing The Lottery

I buy some tickets occasionally.

I know mathematically the odds are extremely miniscule. But extremely miniscule is still way better then 0. I bought a few tickets today.

You won't win if you don't play. However small the chance.

I probably buy a ticket or 2 every couple of months, but unless there is a huge jackpot like now, I won't go out of my way to get one.

I picked up $20 worth and went in with a group at my job. We had 300 numbers here at work and on one ticket nailed 2 numbers and missed 2 others by 1 a 3rd number by 3 and the jackpot was off 7. Still fairly close though ... but no cigar.

I'm the same as Sponge ... we'll buy some when/if they get high, but no where close to a regular player

Default Re: Who's Playing The Lottery

there were two winning tickets sold...

(CNN) -- This holiday season just got a lot merrier for two insanely lucky people.

Two tickets matched the winning numbers in Tuesday night's $636 million Mega Millions jackpot -- splitting the second largest prize in U.S. history.

One winning ticket was sold in Atlanta, and the other was sold in San Jose, California, lottery officials said.

The winning numbers were 8, 14, 17, 20 and 39, with a Megaball of 7. Twenty ticket holders will win $1 million after matching all the numbers except the Megaball.

I'm way ahead in my lifetime on scratch offs, parlays and straight bets. Way ahead.

I don't play it, if you win good luck to you in life and may you never work another day. Just isn't something I gambled my food and rent money on.
