I have played the lottery many times. That was when i had money to spare. My husband and i played with my co-workers and with his co-workers the most we one was 40 dollars and we put that money back in the lottery the next week. I will play for fun if I have the money.

I do play a certain amount each month on lottery tickets.   Someone once told me, "Don't plan your life on winning the lottery, but it doesn't hurt to play a ticket or two now & then."     I have won some small prizes here & there & it is fun to dream about winning the big jackpot.    I rarely go to casinos to gamble & I figure $20.00 a month is not going to break me.   Like anything else in life, moderation is the key.

I don't play the lottery. I figure I could get the same end result in my checking account by rolling down my car window and throwing money out the window. Someone else would be happy to find it. But, that seems very inefficient.

Instead, like some others here, I save that money so I can invest in my retirement accounts. Except for the past week's corrections, I have done quite well with my accounts there and I know I made much more money that way than the occasional scratch-off win would have provided. 

That said, I will enter online sweepstakes (for websites where I have already chosen to share my information) but those are free. I have occasionally won something that way -- including a $10 VISA gift card from a Sprite.com drawing today!!!

Yes Powerball and Megamillions. I know the odds are extreme but there is a little excitement in the chance of winning. Everybody dreams of living their lives without a care in the world but in reality the winnings would bring more confusion to your life. The thought of winning for me is how much good I could do for my family and being able to give back.

I use to spend almost $80.00 a month on lottery tickets. Now I put that money into a mutual fund. I have over $10,000.00 in my account. More then I have ever made on the lottery and a better return !

Never bought a lottery ticket and never will.Anything supporting govt is mostly a waste,in my opinion.Hopefully others will buy and lower my taxes.Many people buying lottery tickets are low income and paying little taxes,so it is a chance for them to contribute.

Yes, I play at least one a week, because one can always hope and I will always think that this might be the day for me and my family!

Yes.  I play  the California Super Lotto Plus.  Once, every 3 weeks I buy a ticket, that is good for 6 drawings(2 per week for 3 weeks).  I do 5 lines of numbers each time.  I always use the same numbers.  When my ticket expires - I cash in for my winnings and buy a new ticket.  I usually have some winnings - from $2 to $12.  

 

Yes, yes - I know that in all probability - I will lose more than I will win - But - I enjoy doing this.  

:-)
