Have you ever won or wanted to win the lottery?

As a teenager I wanted to win the lottery so badly, I'm buy as many lottery scratch off tickets as I could. Each time I would get two matches and only a few more scratches left but then it would leave me with nothing. My dreams of being instantly rich were crushed over and over again. I did win $20 one time, which was a good thing, since I had used someone else's money to purchase the ticket at that time. It simple amazed me how much money I spent on those things and how LITTLE I received back in return. Anyone has a similar experience? Thanks in advance for your contribution.

Everybody would love to win the lottery obviously but obviously not everybody is meant to win the lottery. In this world that we live in money rules over a lot of people. Winning the lottery would give someone the power to destroy themselves or be able to not have to do a thing for the rest of their life. The lottery would give someone unreal security and a false sense of reality.

what's wrong with not having to do anything the rest of your life? That's my goal!

The most I have ever won is sixteen dollars. I don't buy lottery tickets very often.

I am very fond of lottery and spend lots of money on various lottery. Unfortunately I have not own any big money so far, only few times own few dollars and maximum was $20. I know it is bad addiction and lots of money are draining out, but I simply can not resist buying lottery tickets.
