I was wondering if you play the lottery? How do you feel about gambling? My husband and I play the Powerball when it get's to be like 100 million dollars. It's nice to dream about what we would do with the money if we ever win!

I haven't played the lotto for over two years now. I'm thinking about getting a ticket when it's up there again. Well, 7 mil is good enough for me already.

You would think that 7 million would be enough for anyone. I mean how many people do you know who have 7 million dollars? If you know lots of people with this kind of money, then maybe we could be friends and I could be friends with your friends and we would all be happy!! LOL.

Lottery tickets - The scratch off lottery tickets that I like to play.
I like to play the scratch off tickets. I usually win at least what I payed for. My biggest winner was about 45 dollars. I prefer to go to the real casinos to gamble though. I really like the keno machines because you can bet a little and still win. The most I have won at a real casino is 1700 in one day. THat is take home.

Can I go with you the next time? I could use an extra $1700!

Winning $45 and $1700 is far more that I have ever won, I am pretty sure you might be the luckiest person I know.

I like you wait until the jackpot gets above a certian amount. Usually around 100 million too. So far the only think that I have ever got out of the deal is a $3. But we keep on trying... it is only a matter of time before I strike it rich and when I do... me and my family will be living large.

When you say family do you mean extended family also or just your immediate family? I'm sure that if you ever win the lottery you'll have family coming out of the woodwork. But, I'm sure you know who your real friends and family are! Btw, did I ever tell you that you're my favorite brother-in-law??? LOL.

No I don't. I don't have a problem with it. Usually when I buy my gas I pay for it at the pump so rarely go in the store. I did ask about getting a ticket awhile back, but was told I had to pay cash for it. (I'd wrote a check to pay for my gas.) Yes, it is nice to dream about what to do with the winnings, but guess I need to play first! LOL

True that you can't win if you don't play. I didn't know that you had to pay cash, though it makes sense. If someone wrote a bad check and then won lots of money in the lottery ... I guess it would be great for the winner, not so much for the lottery!

I play the lottery sometimes, mostly by buying scratchers. A few times I have bought the lottery tickets for the big wins, but I have never won anything from those. It is fun to dream about what you'd with the money. =)

Yes, before but I realized that I just have to save all the money that I'm spending in the lottery that I don't even win, if I save them for 5 years, it's almost same thing that I won a lottey... ;0)

That's a good theory! Also you don't have to pay taxes on your savings, like you would on your winnings!

We play here and there. You can't win if you don't try we figure. And we want to win. lol

I don't want you to win ... at least not when I'm playing! lol. You can win all the other times though!

lol We can both win at different times lol

That sounds like a plan ... perhaps we'll become good friends and split our winnings. That way we both win all the time!

Why because it goes against your personal convictions or because you don't think it's worth your money?
