Just recently,mother in law won in sweepstakes for almost eleven thousand or (11,000.00) $250 plus as she used to bet a lot especially when she has a money. Her winning no is 929 in suertres lotto.Of course we were so happy because Mama gave us a "balato" (money given when someone wins). The truth is I don't bet at anything especially sweepstakes but because Mama always wins,I also started now and hooked of betting but only when I have a money until now I wasn't able to win.

As long as you don't bet more than you can afford it can be a bit of fun. There's always a chance of getting something back. My family had a really nice win at the horse races last Saturday, and everybody was really happy.

Right don't bet more than you can win. I understand that there is a lot of betting on horses where you are. Do you go and see the races live?

@Marcyaz I actually have a part time job on the turnstiles at the races, but my family does go to the races a lot. My husband used to be a jockey, and I used to work in racing stables too. We live in the racehorse capital of the world, where there are 2,500 horses.

@jaboUK How interesting to learn you work on the turnstiles and your husband was a jockey. Where is the racehorse capital of the world, I only know the places in the US. Thanks in advance.

@SIMPLYD Mother in law is quite old and betting in a suertres lotto is one of his leisure time and I bet your mother too.They seem to enjoy doing it specially when they won.Whenever Mama has a money she also bet three times a day sometimes in a big amount.

@Tita417 You know what I tried it too bet her numbers and at that time she won on the ramble while I wasn't because I did not bet on the ramble,only the target.I was envious that time hehe,though,I don't win she never forget to give me a balato.Imagine you will have a money in your hand without doing something to earn it.

@Tita417 Oh yes,I always expect the balato because I know she'll give me.Mama is so kind and generous.There was a last time she won a 20k and her balato to me is 3k,imagine that,very big,right?Up to now,I always wonder why Mama always win and I don't. . I have also did that,I dream before a numbers and even told it to my husband at dawn just not to forget the numbers but when I bet those numbers,still I don't win.I am not just really lucky at all.

Sometimes I win something small, but I usually don't win anything. I really only play when it's a free sweepstakes. I don't want to pay money to enter a sweepstake because there's no guarantee that I'll win anything.

@Marcyaz Maybe in your place no one enter in a sweepstakes that's why you don't know anyone while here in my place,I often heard everyone who won big amounts that's why most of the people here got hooked to sweepstakes.

@LadyDuck I also thought to stop but at the same encourage when my mother in law often won and not really small but big amount huh,I am thinking I bet only for a 10 peso and I won up to $150,so big,.The winning amount is what really attracting me though the winning possibility is a little low.

LOL! You seem to be on the roll as far as luck is concern and I am happy for you. I am not really a fan of the sweepstakes as the chances of striking is very slim, so you would not find me buying it. The times that I participated are more social like when there's a big jackpot draw and working colleagues would pool to buy some. I wouldn't say that we did not win since consolation is still a win but quite inconsolable if you know what I mean. Anyway, I wish you luck but don't be tempted.

Hi, @artemeis I like your name.Anyway,Thank you,However,I have tempted already as I did entering in sweepstakes sometimes,It is really tempting the fact that mother in law had won many times with such a big amount.I know everyone would still hoping for a luck like this though what you said is right,the chances of winning is very slim but them many are hooked to this.
