Last month I decided that I would try an experiment since one of my good friends is an avid scratch-off ticket buyer. She also happens to win often. So, I thought that I would start trying my luck -only nowhere near as often as she does. I told myself that I would purchase 5 of these one dollar tickets each month and find out if I could get lucky. I had no luck with my purchases last month, but I went ahead and purchased 5 more yesterday. I was shocked when I scratched them off and found 2 winners. Now, the amount of money I got was not that much(seventeen dollars), but it was a great feeling just to finally win something considering that I never win anything.

That's very true, SukiSmiles! I'm going to hold onto those winning tickets for as long as I can.

Congratulations my friend! Well deserved, it always makes me feel good if I get an unexpected win, I play the lottery each week and occasionally win but it's always £5 and £10 but they are still wins and it makes you feel good. Even if it's only seventeen dollars it's still a win my friend! Lets hope next time it's a much bigger win eh! I used to be lucky with online competitions and the best win I got was a colour television! Also when you win you can't wait to shout it out to share your good news with others.

It did work wonders in lifting my spirits, wolfie! Sort of made me feel as though somebody up there loves me.

congrad on your win-just make sure you keep to the 5 a month because it can become very addictive-especially if you win-you keep thinking you can win more and start to buy more

Oh, I'm very anti-gambling, jackiew, so I would never risk more than $5.

You shouldn't give up entirely, qian. Just set a limit of what you will allow yourself to spend and don't go past it.

That is great. I never play it anymore because I always lose LOL. My husband has played a few times recently and won $50.00 one time and $100.00 another time. He has better luck than me LOL.
