    I have done that actually. It was a couple years ago. I had about 20 dollars to my name. I had to make a choice so I went online to an online casino, which I won't mention name here. I had the luckiest night In my whole life. I won 1200 right off the bat. Not only that I hit again for 600 same night. Its like my prayers were answered that night. Not big money, but it was big to me cuz I had none.I'm not saying you should make the same choice, buts its interesting how thing turn out sometimes. These days I can't hit a pick 4 to save my life, but I'm going to wait for my next lucky day and I'm sure it will be great. Good Luck.

        Winner06,

        You're lucky you got a husband with job to fall back on if you do decide to spend your money on lottery tickets rather than food.  Good luck to you.

         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

          No Fish here. Was approx. 3 or4 years ago on Wildlifewins website. They have now renamed to Pluslotto. Many games to play. I won 1200 on Little lotto. I won another 600 on a game called SnowBall.What diferences does it make really. This day and time some people believe nothing.

          Good Day.

            This is so silly. And yes, I forgot it was about 20 dollars I deposited at that time. Don't know what minimum deposit is now. It has been several years ago. I don't play there anymore cuz its an overseas gaming corporation and bank declined my debit card use soon after my win, but I did indeed get paid.

                      I understood the question, because sometimes I don't even have $6 in my wallet, but it doesn't mean I can't get $100 somewhere.  I certainly would never go hungry and spend money on lottery tickets, but I've also skipped the bakery section or bought spaghetti so I could play my Lotto numbers on Sat. I definitely do not have a gambling problem either. I reread the original question, but I'm still going to keep what I wrote below, which might apply to someone else.

                      I agree with everyone who said that gambling, including the lottery, should fall to last place on your budget after food, rent/mortgage, and other staples. But I also agree that, if you win money, you can improve your financial situation tremendously and never have to face making that decision again. Just remember - even when the odds are 50/50 you still have just as much chance of losing than winning. The lottery odds are so much greater, so the lottery might possibly be the solution to someone's problems and answer all his wishes, but chances are - it probably ain't gonna happen. The reason I am mentioning this or even posting on this thread is something woke me up yesterday.  My manager wrote an order and there were 2 of us present, so he decided to give it to one of us and flipped a coin.  I called tails, it came up heads, and the other person got the commission. Actually, he never flipped it. He dropped it on the floor and then looked down and said I lost, but the point is, that could have been a nice bonus.

                      RJOh has the best suggestion. A good job that pays the bills and leaves a little extra to play is the answer when someone only has $6 at the end of the week. Just always hang onto what you've got until another one comes along. Take it from someone who didn't do that. (do what I say, not what I do!) In 2005 and 2006 I got into a really bad slump. Good jobs are hard to find around here and I did something really stupid in early 2005 that got me into a deep hole. Then I became very depressed. It's amazing how the months pass by and all your savings can quickly disappear. I now have credit card payments due to some emergencies and have a car payment to face each month as well. So suddenly my monthly budget has increased by hundreds. But I've always gotten myself out of jams before and kept my head above water, and 99 out of 100 times the solution has been to pick myself up and work my butt off, not to depend on a windfall.

                        Good point coin toss! "scared money" never makes money! I can personally answer yes to at least seven of those questions from GA.  "It is what it is!" A disease. With help you can overcome any addiction, but the hard part is resisting the urges, It something that you have to deal with the rest of your life. So never gamble your last  6 dollars if it means you are not going to eat until next week! As Mike Tyson would say, "That's Ludicras!"
