today i went to the local store to buy some lottery, i played a few other scratchers and broken even until i saw the million dollar bankroll tickets which are $5 each. i saw that it was a new pack starting at #100 so i decided to buy 2 first. both losers and i bought 2 more, i kept buying until i hit $15 win after buying 16 tickets which cost $80. then i continued buying 2 at a time until i hit $20, by that time i was on #64 from #100. so yea after 36 tickets all i got was the $15 and $20 win. so thats $145 down the drain.

also saw this old lady in the store who bought #1 through #8 tickets of the $30 new york's $1,000,000 a year for life tickets. she won x2 $30 and x1 $50, so she was down $130.

starting from today i am going to set my spending limit and only buy a few tickets and bring it home to scratch. just want to share my experience that lottery should only be played for fun!!!!  Bang Head

    Yes I have bought several $20 tickets (here in TN) one time, in a row on TWO diffrent rolls and walked away with basically nothing.

    this was a time I bought them late at night, at a grocery store, from a machine. I ran out of money, disgusted at winning nothing, and returned the next morning, early after much thought and decided to finish out the rolls.

    I won maybe half my money back, spending about 240 and only winning back 120.

    The sad part is when I cashed it all in the clerk (at a completely different store) said "Wow you did some winning!!!" and I said, no, even with this I am still down.

    It would be nice to see more people actually win when this happens but I guess this is how the lottery is.
