    I have been interested in the winning numbers since I was 14 years old in 2000. However, I did not buy my first lottery tickets until I was 19. I played the Virginia Pick 3 on January 11, 2005. I remember playing 103, 104, and 017 among other numbers. I remember 116 won that afternoon.

    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!

      in the 70's the bookmakers used the first 3 horses across the finish line at hialeah park--- today they use the night numbers that comes out here in MD

      yea' back then i remember them sayin the lottery would put the bookies out of business.

      did't happen, just made it easier for them get the results out,

      c'mon eagles, its going to take more than fieldgoals, to put manning in his place.

          The first time I ever played lotto was in the year 2000 or 2001 (I can't remember exactly). However it was a $2 scratch off ticket (I think lucky 7's) and I got a hit for $2. At that time I was very young (10 or 11) but my Grandpa bought me that ticket. It was in my old neighborhood, Throgs Neck (an old deli that is now a house complex lol). Ever since that, I've begun to play the lottery in my Senior year of high school. That is, Pick 3. I play Pick 3, MM and PB. I've won $3 from the PB twice so I consider myself very lucky lol. 


          Off Topic: Today for NY pick 3, the number drawn was 358 and I had 453 - I was so close but I guess close doesn't count. Sleepy
