I like to play the lottery every once in a while (realizing my chances of winning are .01111111%), but I've never won any prizes from the powerball or mega millions (scratchers, I've won of course though :P).  Has anyone on here ever won a prize over $50,000 from Mega or Power?

 

 

Thanks.

          I don't hate you. I sincerely hope you hit the JP.

          I'm just an old fart who's seen it all. I even had hair-brained schemes that worked for a bit, and then fizzled out. Just look at the list of my useless systems.

          I was just joking about the rolling in dough. Sorry if I made you feel bad.

            I don't feel bad.  The usage of "hate" in that post is slang for jealousy.  But the challenge has been posted.  So grab your ankles and slap those #$sses, because there's gold in them thar holes!Cheers

              The most I ever won was $23 in July 2001. Otherwise, I'm not lucky at all.

                  There might be two people here who have won six figures, but winning and posting it here isn't the smartest move anyone could make.

                  'Nuff said. No No

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    6 action figures?  When I was 12 I won a dance contest at a Bar Mitzvah.  Wish I could find my prize.  It was a 45 of Mickey's Monkey.

                        As a member who just joined today, you may not be aware of the foolishness of posting on a public forum your lottery wins of $50K or more.  Such posts invites PM from people needing money which can spoil an other wise enjoyable experience at LP.

                        Regardless of what any member has won in the past, it was not enough or they wouldn't continue to come back to LP to share ideas on how to win more.

                            I've been playing since texas lottery began. I now play the oklahoma lottery. I've never won more than $50 here, $30 there. I never spend more than $2 per drawing ($1 Powerball,$1 PowerPlay) and $1 per drawing (Cash 5, three times a week). I don't play Pick 3 or Scratch-offs. Because I spend so little, my odds of winning are slim to none. But that won't stop me. Odds are odds whether you spend $1  or $100.  p.s. Powerball Jackpot is $210 mil.Party

                              Is $500 a substantial amount of money?
