Can you remember the first time you won the lottery?

The first win I had was 187 and it was a box win.

My first straight win was 327 for $790, I had it

on two tickets a straight/box and straight.

Wow!  The excitement in my heart and that was in

the 80's, for years I never even thought about the

lottery, but I would always dream numbers and so I

finally played one, hmmm been a lottery player ever since.

I still sometimes have dreams, but they don't always come

in my state, so I try to post and maybe someone can get some

cash from them.

    gosh no it was so long ago. I do remember i was really excited and have been playing ever since. I think it was for 790 bucks. 50/50 and a dollar straight. That was when i just spent $5.00 a day 2 dollars on pick 3 and 2 dollars on pick 4. Just guessin what the number would be. I didn't use a system or paper method or track numbers. Just played whatever number popped up in my mind. Maybe i should go back to that method. If i remember right it worked a lot of times.

    Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

      The first time I hit a straight Pick 3 (after trying for a long time with no success), I couldn't believe my eyes - it was just amazing.  That feeling is what gets people hooked on the lottery.  (Not in a bad way, of course!)

        I don't recall the first small win but the first big(ger) one.

        In 1994 I won third price, aprox. $ 735 on the official 7/34 lottery in Norway (6/7).

              St. Germain, that's too funny!!  Todd, I avoided saying, how it

            makes you addicted to playing, but since I'm not alone in that I guess

            I can fess up now. lol  Four 4 me, I still have the first ticket half,

            it was 2 tickets 50 cent box and a ticket 50 cent straight, the

            straight is what I have in my storage in an old jewelry box,

            otherwise I surely wouldn't remember.

              My first lottery win was $7 in MM. Since then I have won only around $10 in PB and $2 in MM. I guess I'm pretty unlucky.

                Ladyt1 I'm glad you brought up the topic it made me feel good to remember those days and look forward to many more to come. St.germain is a very funny guy and i know he probably did wet himself. LOL I do remember my first pick 4 $7,600 winner it was on a day when i was running around like a wild man trying to do ten things at once and i only had 2 bucks on me no number list so i played my tag number.  Two more minutes and i would'n have been able to buy the tickets because the number was just about to be drawn. Then i allmost forgot about buying the ticket. Later that evening while checking the numbers i see it came out straight. I was pretty excited we had a great summer. I was able to treat my family with a lot of neet stuff and they were very happy. My wife was so surprized when i gave her 2500 for her birthday to do with as she wished. When i won that time it couldn't have happened at a better time, i do think that the higher power had a lot to do with it and he blessed us with that win and has done so many times while we were in some need of financial assistance. I hope good fortune comes your way soon.
