Most I ever won from a scratch ticket I bought is $100 however it just so happens that today I found a $1000 winner in the trash. I've also won 3 bruins prize packs from the $5 bruins second chance drawing. Almost makes up for the thousands a year in losers. As far as drawings go, I've only won $7 on a mm ticket.

Thats awesome! I have found $100 winners in the trash  but never 1G! I am from Mass too and play lotsa scratchers. What ticket did you find the winner on?

Did someone simply miss a matching number or foolishly look at the code?

    My best was $400 on a Powerball with PowerPlay. I played a combination of numbers that coincided with my wedding anniversary and it paid off.

      I've won the 2nd tier prize for Oregon Megabucks twice - once on a quick pick for $1900 and once on my own numbers for $2300 (I was using old pay slips and shuffled them, laid out a Tarot spread, and used the slips from that speard)

       

      Alas each of those was years ago ..... no big wins in the last 5-6 years .... must be coming around to my turn again Wink

        $100 playing the Virginia 3-ball boost option on December 29, 2009.

        For an extra dollar, the Pick-3 Boost option will give you five extra numbers that you must match in exact order. My Pick-3 boost numbers were 068, 187, 727, 309, and 091. The winner that afternoon was 068.

        I had a feeling based on past patterns that 104 would win in Virginia on March 29, 2005. I went to the store that day, but I forgot to play the number. The winning number: 104. I would have won $500!

        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!

          Nope it was $200K. I didn't want to brag about it though. Some LP'ers resent me for that. Let's just keep that our little secret....OK??  No No

          .50 cents is still a good haul, plus no taxes to pay!  Thumbs Up

          howd you win that 200k off 50cnt

            This was a reference to my "biggest win" of .50 cents at the beginning of this thread, had nothing to do with the 200K.

                          The most I have won was $150 matching 4 of 5 on MegaMillions (subscription).  Now hoping to get pleasantly surprised when one of my MM subscription plays matches 5 of 5 plus the MB.

                          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
