      when is the last time you cashed in a winning ticket?

      Last week I cashed in a Mega Millions ($5) quick pick ticket for $17.  Two lines paid off:

      2 + Mega = $10

      3 (no mega)  = $7

       It would have been nice if the numbers would have been on the same line

      Winning numbers:

      22-33-35-40-53 + 15

      My numbers:

      6-22-25-35-41 + 15

      11-12-33-35-53 + 10

        Last week.  You weren't specific so I assumed you meant any amount.  I won $3.50 getting 3 out of 6 in Lotto.  I also won a free ticket playing Fantasy 5, although that's really not cashing in anything.  A month ago I won $75 getting 4 out of 6.  Before then....nothing, zip, zero, nada, zilch for years.  Hope my "winning" streak continues!  LOL

          I cashed a 1+1 MegaMillions ticket ($3) from Friday night and bought 10 Classic Lotto today and I'll cash in the two matched 3's winners ($4) from today when I buy ten more CL tickets Monday.  I've had some winners but I'm losing $6-$7 ever time I play.  I feel I'm close enough to having a bigger winner to keep me going back and losing a little more.

            I wasn't going to post again on this thread but I've got to tell you that, for some reason, your comment cracked me up.  I'm still chuckling.   So true, so true.

               Occassional $1 winners on Pick 5 (2 of 5), a $10 (3 of 5) two weeks ago, a pick 3 Straight Box for $290 in August of '06, and 5 of 6 in the Cal. lottery in 1987!

                On average three times a week I cash in.

                AMounts are meager but enough to roll over to the next draw.

                I won ten on the match 6. So I'll play six$ worth and sock the rest into the cash five game.

                Instants I let accumulate then cash them in once a week. They usually go back into the Powerball or Mega game.

                On average I spend 25$ out of pocket per month . Otherwise known as a loss per month in accounting terms.

                  when is the last time you cashed in a winning ticket?

                  Today....but all that did was mean I lost 3 bucks on my expediture of $5.00

                  "Winning" doesn't mean much as such. You have to cash in for more than you spent for it to be a happy event.

                            I will be cashing in a $12 PB winner this morning :-) (1+1 w/ 3x PP)

                            Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
