Hello mylot, I would love to know how many of you mylotters are playing the lottery and if you think that you will win. I don't play it very often but on a few occasions I will play it. So far I've never won only very small prizes. What about you? Have you ever won anything big and do you think you ever will? Please share ur experiences.

I don't play the lottery very much. The few times that I have I have not won anything. I have played scratch tickets and won maybe $5-$10 the odd time. I don't know if I will ever win big. I hope so, but you can't win if you don't play.

Do you play the lottery? Yes friend, that is what they say, you can't win if you don't play. Good luck!

Do think playing the ottery is a little bit of a waste of time. I have been doing it for a few years now and have watched my parents buy tickets every week. However neither of us have won anything large so to speak...I suppose you only really need to match the numbers once but it's a long time coming. Nowadays i'm just worried that if I stop buying lottery tickets my numbers will come up the following week.

With my syndicate at work I always keep the same numbers but for extra tickets I buy if there's a rollover etc. then i'll usually get a lucky dip.

I have bought lottery tickets several times and the biggest prize I have ever won is 5 yuan... hehe... I am not a lottery fan and I just buy lottery tickets on impulse.I dont have great anticipation for the big prize since the accidence is too tiny,besides,a lottery ticket only costs me a small amount of money.In a word ,I just consider it as a way of recreation.

I play sometimes. I don't buy them very often but once in a while. I don't really expect to wil but its fun to think about what I would do if i did. Once in a while some gals I work with get together and all put in a couple bucks and buy a group chance at winning. We did win $5.00 once lol

dO YOU PLAY THE LOTTERY! Yes I remember hearing about a group of people that all pooled their money together. I think that's one of the best ways to do it, if you work with others.... this way it's not just you who might take a loss....... Also if you only doing it once or twice a year it's no big deal.......... and imagine if you win. Wouldn't that be nice:)! Thanks for contributing, happy mylotting.

No, I do not play the lottery but my husband does. My husband has been playing it on a regular basis from day one when Texas got the lottery. He plays twice a week but doesn't ever win. He might win $3.00 on occasion but I do not think he has won anything in a long time.

Hi Citychic. I never won anything big on the lottery and doubt if I ever will. I read somewhere once that you have more chance of getting hit by debris from space than winning the lottery. That is some big odds. I have always based my career on winning the lottery. My current job is just the fallback plan

Do you play the lottery? Well that's nice that you won something. Thanks for contributing. I once won around thirty dollars while playing bingo. I never really looked at it as gambling, although I did take a chance by getting on the boat that was going out to sea. Made it back alive and well, thirty bucks richer, so I guess you could say I was kind of lucky that night. Happy Mylotting.

No I don't cos it is just like a gamble. Something that you don't earn by your hard work, doesn't be there for long for you.

I usually steer away from lottery. Right now I am in short of money so I dont' wanna waste my money or gamble playing lottery, there's a chance I can lose a lot of money! So when I have very limited amount of money I stay away from lottery!

no, I don't usually play the lottery. Once in a blue moon, when the jackpot is over a couple hundred million, I might buy a ticket or two, but that's not very often. However, on occasion, I will play scratch off tickets. But, I never win anything with those either.

The only kind of lottery I play is the scratch-off kind that I get during the Holidays every year. My grandparents have been playing lottery since who knows when, and they've only won maybe $1,000.00. It probably doesn't help that they always play the same numbers, which makes their odds even less. I guess it just never crosses my mind to play until the winnings are really high, when your chances of actually getting something decrease because everyone else is playing too. If I played consistently, maybe I would win something eventually, but I don't really see that happening anytime in the near future (although it would be REALLY nice).

I play the lottery. I buy scratch of tickets mostly. I have won on those. The most was 15 bucks on one card! I buy the Mega Bucks and Powerball tickets a few times a month. I haven't won anything on those. As long as it isn't an addiction I see no harm playing the lottery!

i play the lottery specially if the price balloned to hundreds of millions. I never win higher than my original bet though

I play when I can afford it, and I don't spend more than I can afford. The most I ever won was $85.00. I think it is the dream of striking it rich that makes everyone participate. There is no harm in having dreams, just as long as you don't overspend, because then it becomes akin to gambling.

I also do not play the lottery that often, I do not play it to win, as knowing I have played the lottery does not leave me with betting odds that are likely to succeed. I never won anything big, unless £100 is anything to go by.

Uhm.. i think its okey if you make some occasions... but just for 3 or 5 times. If you get what you want in 5th trial... its okey.. but if you get what you want in 3rd, just stop! I think Lottery just such as a gamble... not to do more...
