I'm no math wizard but i say she did good $2.00 a draw two draws a week for 27 years.Type

We've only had Lucky for Life for a couple of years.  So I have to assume she's played those numbers on every applicable game.  27 years on both Powerball and Megamillions.  A whole bunch of years on Wild Card ($1) and Hot Lotto ($1).  And a few years on Lucky for Life ($2) and probably Weekly Grand ($2) too.

I'm not gonna do the math, but she spent a whole lot of money over the years.  I bet she still came out ahead though.  Yes Nod

    Wow, I can't even fathom this  27 year commitment! 

    I wonder if it was mentally exhausting wading through 27 years of paying for weekly chances to win a jackpot?

            Congratulations to her.  Think I'll play my birthday on all my tickets for a couple of draws--can't hurt.

              A commitment is a promise. My Grandparents were married for 57 years. Rosemary knows what a commitment truly is.

                Congratulations!

                 

                Now someone explain this lottery to me.  It started in Connecticut in 2009, and wasn't available outside New England for sometime and Idaho later on according to Wikpedia.  So my point is she may have played the same #'s, just not on this lottery the entire time.

                Personally stopped playing about a year ago in KY and Season Ticket from MA.

                 

                What is great about LFL is it is not a RNG and still drawn in Connecticut.

                      Not sure but she don't look like the kind that would bet the Farm.

                          One of the floor techs @ the hospital I work in was said to have won $50K last week.  I searched high and low for him as I spoke to him hours ago and he didn't tell me.  Said I'll find him on my way out.  I went up with a sh-t eating grin and said 'Reggie, don't you have something  to tell me?'  He said yes, I played my cell phone # 8484 and won $50K (KY pick 4 straight).  He then said he won $50K in April same scenario.  Next day @ work asked him how much he plays everyday-$72/day!
