Funny how I didn't pick it up as a hobby until I got a real job and real bills. I kinda wish I took a chance back then but guess that was last thing on my mind in school Wink

I knew people back in school who snuck into riverboat casino and even played bingo for their kicks but don't know anybody who played the lottery or may not want to fess up to it.

      I'm currently a senior atmospheric science student now.  I'll admit I've played a good bit since I turned eighteen.  For me, it's all about having fun and dreaming.  I enjoy laughing at folks that say the lottery is a tax on the poor or uneducated.  I'm finding more and more wealthy educated folks play for the same reasons I play the lottery.  It's all about having a good time and maybe winning a little along the way.

      How are you going to win if you don't play?

        I just got a 3+0 in mega...Cheers Who would have guessed 20 as the mega ball two draws in a row?? Oh well- anyway I never played in college, but now I have rent, student loans, so I started playing due mostly b/c of the people I work with kept talking about the lottery all the time. So I started buying tickets 2 years ago and here I am.

          Yes, started playing in High School, and in college seldomly, and now daily if most. It's fun with each time new ways to tackle it.

            I am Sophomore in college. I started playing when I was 18, I couldn't wait. I was fascinated with the lottery when i was little and I always loved scractching tickets with my Mom or Grandma in the grocery store. But, I'm a broke college student so at the most I spend $5 a week. If that sometimes I go a whole month without playing. But, I would love to hit the lottery young thats why I play. My friends think its so funny that I play Little Lotto and stuff, I think they associate the lottery with old to middle aged adults.

              Now I don't see doctors and lawyers waiting in line next to me to buy tickets but I was surprised that almost nobody laugh at me or turn me down when I did an office pool at work and almost had to shut it down early due to demands. These are educated professionals in midwest but nobody wanted to be the only ones left at work after the big win I guess

                Just curious if you ever got carded. Happen to me couple of times. I swear of all the things they check...might as well sell lotto, porno, and cigrattes at a bar and kill all birds with one stone. They already talking about bringing video poker to bar in illinois.

                And yeah, little lotto is the way to go. Can pay off your student loans or buy your first house with that and it huge tonight.

                    I am in college - specifically grad school - and I play about 2 or 3 times a month. I have been interested in the lottery numbers since I was 14 but I didn't play for the first time until a week after I turned 19.

                    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                        I played $10 worth of Pick-3 numbers today but did not win anything.

                          Did you play straight for a buck? I thought about doing that too with the bonus draw promotion in IL. Figure spend $10 bucks for a 1% chance at $500. Better odds than scratchers

                            The thing about being young is that you have very little in the way of commitments and expenditures.   You may not have a lot of income but you also don't have a mortgage to worry about.    I was poor as a student but I wasn't as poor as when my salary hit six digits.   People play out of desperation and there are a lot more reasons to play as you get older.
