            A little over two years. If it wasn't for me joining this site about a week after starting playing I wouldn't have remembered when I started. Good thing we had pumpi back then, as I'm pretty sure I registered just to reply to him/her.

                This Febuary will make it a year for me and back in the early 90's

                I used to play scratch offs on and off like every couple of months.

                      I think that my parents got me to play. My mother once bought two tickets for my brother and me when I was 14 or so. The one on my name won 10000 DM for the tv show Der grosse Preis. It seriously pissed me off as you cannot keep the money, you must sign that you refused it and it went to a good cause. ... They say that I will win the jackpot.

                            One of the things I always look out for in winner's story is how long the pool, couple or individual has been playing the lottery. Sometimes the Lady endow us with "beginner's luck" and other times rewards us for our long term commitment. So tell us, how long have you been in?

                             

                            What got you started?

                             

                            Comments welcomed.

                            The idea of using my mathematical skills to win a little money had me from day one. But, I learned over time that it was tougher due to the payout scale and then compounded with preparing all my tickets. Then, I had to run around just get all my tickets played in time. The excitement of knowing that I could win at some point sold me.

                             

                            L.L.

                            Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                            There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.
