I'm new here and I'm starting to like this place. Seems like a nice, friendly place to chat about lotto.
What is the most anyone has won on a lottery ticket? Was it on a scratcher or numbers game (e.g. Powerball, Mega Millions, Pick 5/4/3, etc.)? If it was a scratcher, how did you win that prize, if you remember (e.g. $20,000 winner on a $10 ticket with 20 # matches for $1,000, $10,000 winner via a "20X" symbol with $500 under it, single number match for a grand prize, etc.)?
The most I've ever won was $100 4 times. Back in 2004 on a $2 Mad Money ticket, I hit $30 and $50 in the 2 tic-tac-toe-like games and got the correct symbol in the bonus box for $20. In 2005, I bought a $1 Junior Jumbo Bucks and hit a JUMBO symbol for 5x $20. In February, I hit 2 $100 winners within a week on the $10 Cash Explosion tickets -- first one via a firecracker "win all" symbol for all 15 prizes consisting of $5s and $10s, and the 2nd one via 4 "bill" symbols for 5x $5 each. I have the last 3 $100 winners posted in my blog along with other nice winners I've hit since 2005.
A Gold account on Lottery Post: $4.95
A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher: $20
Airfare and hotel in March 2007 to see The Price Is Right before Bob Barker retired: $600-something
