    Since we have two draws per day Monday thru Saturday and I play both draws at an average play of $20, you do the math.  When 666 came out in Texas I won $1000 and when 888 came out I won $500.  All this happened within a couple of days.  I put the money in the bank and bought something that I always wanted.  Everytime I have a decent win I buy something rather than giving the money back.

      Obviously not enough to teach me a lesson - quit while you're ahead. These high jackpots are like a sugar pile to the ant colony. We just can't stay away. Trek around the world for one small granule. Then come back again for another. Thinking, some day I will be able to carry all the granules in one trip. The worst part? The Queen doesn't even say thanks!

      Cheers

        I have lost less than $50 as my vote. The reason being I don't play the lottery in MM, PB, and CA SLP because school and spending money on other things are more important than gambling out some of the money. I have to listen to my family and only buy tickets when my family tells me to.

          Everyone, based upon my quote, last month I lost about $10 total. These reasons on my quote made me cut my losses. Otherwise, I would have lost a little more, but no more than $50 because of my vote I took in poll.
