I have been a member of LP for over , a year, and I vaguely recall a poll similar to this last year sometime; however, there have been new members that have joined LP, whose lottery playing well exceeds their LP membership.  I'm curious to know

                Lottomike-

                What an interesting response.  Well, at least you are winning some money.  I think if I added up all that I have probably played over the years, I would have won maybe $3000, but spent twice that or more. 

                Double Down- its good to see longevity in peoples playing habits.

                        I've been playing the lottery for about 10yrs or so (on a regular basis- when the jackpot was high), before that it was once in a blue moon- I was under the age of 18 at the time so all I really did was scratch off's.  My parents or my grandparents would get the scratch off's- I had fun....it was the simple things in life at that time.

                          I don't play the lottery.  It's a waste of money until I figure out how to predict it.

                            I bought my first lotto in 1993 when I was 18 but I did not become a regular player until 1996.-weshar75

                              I've been a regular player of the mega millions  for 25 years, first when it was introduced in MA only,  and of course when it became multi state.    To answer your question, I have not won a jackpot.  However,  I enjoy the dream of winnning big.

                              I've been playing the lottery for about 30 years, starting in MA & NH and regularly in FL for over 10.  NH had the first lottery I can remember (we called it the NH Sweepstakes) and then MA had a Wed night drawing. It cost 50 cents for a lottery ticket then and they called it The Game.  My friend's Mom was one of the first winners in 1972. She won $50,000.

                              Mega Millions in MA 25 years ago?  I remember MegaBucks in the early 1980s. It started out as a 6/30 game with a minimum $400,000 jackpot.  I guess you might be talking about Mass Millions introduced in the late 1980s which was a 6/46 game. The jackpots were never very high. I don't think they joined the "Big Game" (now Mega Millions) until 1995 or 96 since I moved to Florida in 1994 and they did not have a multi-state game when I left. My memory is fading, so it's hard to remember all the different games. I remember when a million $$$ jackpot was considered to be huge.

                              Keep dreaming! I haven't won a jackpot either, but I still imagine what it would feel like.
