I try the little one's sometimes but never win :( I don't do lotteries because the government is going to take half of it anyway.

i sometimes join the lottery but i don't do it often since i feel like i will just waste my money into gambling, of course we all want to have instant millions in our pocket and if you won in the lottery your dreams will come true. but our chance of winning is a ration of millions:1 or 3, making it appear as impossible. the idea of being instant millionaire when you won the jackpot is thrilling but i think we should not make it a center of our priorities and forsake the far important things.

I have only been in a couple of lotteries, and have won something in one of them. I bought 5 tickets on a program on the internet and actually won 20 dollars I think. So that was fun and very surprising. Entered it again and of course didn't win anything. Don't know what the draw of lots is, but would probably try it if I knew how to do it.

I generally don't as I don't have that much disposable income to toss away on lottery tickets, but when the jackpot creeps up over the $100 million mark, which it frequently does with Mega Millions, the temptation becomes a l;ittle too much. Haven't had much luck, the odd free ticket or $10 payout is about the extent of my winnings.
