I won $250 + $40 in pick 3 twice in Wisconsin.    Hoping to cash in big in June as May has had very little doubles play...so double s/b off the chart in June.US Flag

    Once, I got 5 out of 6 numbers in the Arizona Pick 6 lottery.  If I had gotten all 6 numbers, then I would have won $11.1 million.  Getting 5 out of 6 won me $2,000.00.  Wink

      Won 67,000 NOK (close to 11,700 dollars) four years ago, second prize on the Norwegian Saturday Lotto.

      How much tax do they take over there MW?

                $13 and I have been playing for over 7 years. $20 every week. I really feel like a loser since I haven't win anything big yet.

                I see you're from CA. I just analyized your games. and boy do they suck.

                You don't have many choices.

                You have MM with 1:175M odds

                You have Super Lotto with 1 in 41M odds.

                From there nothing down to fantasy 5.

                Compare Fantasy 5 to Illinois Little lotto.

                They have the same ODDS.

                Ill little Lotto starts at $100,000  Fantasy 5 is at 52,000

                And for smaller prizes that can't even come up with a set prize?

                Match 2 and they can't give you cash?

                Match 3 in Wis and you get $2, match 3 in illinois and get $10, match 3 in CA and it's parimutual already. 

                That horse game I can't even figure that one out.

                So you are split between VERY hard and very cheap. Or too complicated.

                  I guess CA don't care much about lottery since a lot of wealthy people live here. It sucks to be poor living in CA.

                              No taxes whatsoever. The lottery company does not pay any taxes either since the money goes to charity, voluntary work and amateur sport clubs.
