Yay! I Won Some Money In The Lottery Today.

May 30th 2009 I circled three numbers on my lotto 649 ticket for last Wednesday's draw, that matched the ones on the lotto website, and turned in my ticket today. The lotto machine made that winning noise, and my friend at the store handed me $10. YAY!!! I spent $3 of that $10 on another ticket for tonight's draw, and another $2 on a lighter for my husband, and $4.19 on a mocha latte next door, at Second Cup. Now let's see if I win any money in this drawing. I play the same numbers every week. As soon as I win, I'm going to save most of it, buy a limo, and hire my friend Vladimir to drive it. So tell me. Has anyone else won a bit of money (or the big one) from the lottery, recently?

I think Canadian lotteries are different from Americans. I didn't win the numbers straight across, there were a couple that came inbetween mine. I don't know. Either way, all my stuff was free today, so I got a nice day out. I'm certainly not complaining.

I am very happy for you. I hardly ever play the lottery so I have not won anything in a very long time. I only win a dollar or two anyway, LOL. Good luck in the future with your winnings.

that is wonderful that you have won some money. I don't play the lottery, I just don't have much faith in it at all.

I think that's great! No, the most I have ever won in lottery is only $5.00. But you have to play to win so we play twice a week every week. I hope you hit it big one day though. It is always better to get something back as opposed to getting nothing back. Good luck! Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!

did you see that gal who was in school and won the big lotto, not sure I remember here, but if she had waited 2 more months she'd've lost it all.

Congratulations. |$10 is $10 , winning is winning hehe. I don't always play and don't always remember to play. But between me and hubby we play more or less regularly. We don't have any same numbers that we play all the time, we prefer not too. We knew an old lady back home that used to play the same numbers all the time and the one day she didn't play her numbers came up. We don't want to go trough that LOL As for winning... lately all I have won is money out of my pocket LOL I use to at least get a free ticket regularly, but lately...nothing. Nada! :):)

This is awesome! We are just getting a lottery in Arkansas. They haven't got it set up yet. I'm hoping that I will be able to get a scholarship and actually benefit from it. I'm still waiting to see non-traditional students will actually get a scholarship or if they're going to set it up for those that are just graduating high school only.

Yes , I would like to share that I had won a scam lottery of US$800,000 from an internet lottery scheme. I don't know how they got my email address and one day I received a message that I won a lottery. later on when I tried to withdraw that money they said that I will have to pay a transfer fee of $500 in the inland office in China, which I refused and i DIDN'T GET THE MONEY.

First, congratulations on your win. I have never won anything big on the lottery but did, about 5 years ago, win $35,000 on a scratch off. After income taxes, it came to $26,600. Now that was sweet! Just wish I could do it again!

Wow, congrats to you! You're very lucky to win the lottery. I didn't buy or paly lottery or things similar because i think that the chances are very low and actually it's just the matter of possibilities. In fact, the owner wins it all from the beginning. I have a few relatives who are also playing lotteries in a regular basis. However, i seldom hear them mention about winning. I guess most of the people lose in these games, even if they win it's only a small amount, not really enough to cover the cost they've spent in buying te numbers all the while. Anyway, playing it once in a while just for fun or to test out your luck that day will just be fine.

Over the yrs. from time to time I have been known to play the Lottery with buying Scratch Tickets, Daily game tickets, Lotto tickets, etc. Since it is all taxable here in WA state over $600 a lot of the time I guess deep down that I am really hoping for smaller amounts as well. But it is a Great feeling anytime you come out ahead, and makes me want to go celebrate for sure. Personally I have won a little from the daily game, and have done OK with the New daily double game each day as well. But the best I did from one, was to win over $800 in cash and prizes one day but for a lot of different reasons for now, I keep stick playing without so very true.

I won $20 on a scratch off about 3 weeks ago, if that counts. It seems I can't win much so that was a lot for me. I keep playing the mega millions and usually match just one of the six numbers, or none at all!!
