I guess I can say I had beginner's luck when I won over $400 bucks when I first gambled on a slot machine.  And one of the first times I played a scratch off, I won something like $70 bucks.  On my first time playing PB, I won $10 bucks.  Nothing big after that. 

What about you guys?

        Ah, that was nice...long before I was even a lottery player. I scored $300 in Atlantic City on my 21st b-day. Not a whole lot, but it made me happy at the time. Come to think of it...$300 would make me happy now.

          Beginners luck : My first trip to Vegas way back in 1988- did not know very much, so decided to try Keno and lo and behold hit 11 of 20 or something like that and won $1100.00.

          I thought that was way cool !!!

            Long time ago my parents needed some free time so they sent me off with some friends of theirs to the racetrack in Charlestown WV..  At that time a kid could have real fun,  I picked a trifecta. I came home with something like $200 on a dollar bet. I think it was '70 (1970) needless to say, I miss the good old days. jarasan

              First time I ever played megabucks, I asked the clerk why all these numbers

              matched, and she just handed me $30. Ever since then I play that same store

              but I could never get 4 numbers right again.

                    I have had luck in the lottery with small prizes over the last 11 years I have never hit higher than $250 at any one time.  Most of my wins are in the $5 or less range.  So it is just fuel to keep the dream of the big catch alive.  My casino play in the two Indian casinos have been better.  Between the two casinos in driving distance I have averaged about $1000 in winnings over the last 11 years.  My play is on the slot machines and I do use a players card for the comps system at each casino.-weshar75

                        Usually I go well in  the begin , not in every game. After all it could be a matter of probabilities.

                            I remember the first time that I bought an Arizona Pick (6) ticket back in about 2000. I paid $5.00 for five draws, all quick picks, and got 4 out of 6 right in one for $40.00. Not much but enough to get me interested in it!

                              Can't say that I remember ever having it. I started playing Oklahoma Pick-3 in January of 2006 and didn't get my first win until I believe it was April....I played at least a few dollars every day. Since then I've learned to be a much smarter player.
