l have heard of beginners luck, with folk winning under $50.00 on their first try. Personally, no such luck. Took me a few months to get a $10.00 plus win - how about you?

    The first time i played the lottery, i got my $1 back for matching the megaball. 

    Still haven't gotten over $10 on a single ticket but when Powerball hit a billion, i bought a load of tickets and matched the Powerball on 3 tickets.

           When I first began to play the lottery I purchased a California Super Lotto ticket. I won $100.00 

           That was back in 2007. Cool

            Been playing nearly 4 years. After about 1 year of playing, I won $57 on a 4+0 (weird, because I used the numbers from the TV show "Lost" to win). About a year later, I won $54 on another 4+0, then $20 on a scratcher a few weeks after that. Those are my three "major" wins. I have many, many 1+0 and 1+1 wins, and several close calls where I would have won big if I had just been one number up / down. However, all those put together doesn't come close to the number of 0+0 wins I have!

                Thats one way to do it. hit it and quit it!

                I wasnt that lucky, it took me a few times.

                  I hit straight the second time I played pick-3 by using my license plate number. Had no idea what to play the next day.

                    It took me a few months too to win $17.50 lol That was my first win NY Take 5 game 3/5 than I kept on using the same numbers and once I won $771.50 I got 4 out of 5 numbers that was in 2015 I still play the same numbers and I get a lot of free plays or once in a I get the 3/5 so I get somewhere $17.50 and $25 depends how many people won the jackpot prize. The other game I play is the numbers game or pick 3 so I get a few $80 dollars wins here and there I have gotten five doubles this year each one for $160. I love the lottery its my entertainment.

                      Sounds about similar to my story. Started out playing take 5 in 2013-14 hit a few free quick picks. Actual money took a few months. First money was about $22.50 if i'm correct. Caught 3 of 5 maybe 6 or 7 times. Used to play the same combination every time also and sometimes wheel or hand select $20-$40 worth going for the jackpot certain days. Crazy i actually missed my 4 of 5 one nite (upward of $500) I missed playing which was super rare. Shrugged it off atleast it wasn't the jackpot. Probably played take 5 for about 1 year and a half with extensive tracking and research.  Soon later discovered win4 and put ny take5 to the back burner. Haven't tracked take5 in over a year but I am assuming that 5 of 5 still never showed. I wonder if there's any easy way to check. Found my calling with win4 toward the end of 2014 where my most significant profits on the lottery came from in 2015.

                          I'm a believer in first time you play is the luckiest period. I always tell people that to play if they never played before. First time is the luckiest. Seen it many times. First for me bought a $20 Scratch it, won $20 with a diamond. Win for Life Spectacular. So many commercials, they got me. Was down. Gotta good laugh for a couple. lol learn a lot first time............... . ...  . First time da luckiest cha-ching $ :)

                            My first win $17.50 that was what got me excited because I was happy I got 3/5 I feel that was what motivated me to keep on playing and than just enjoying the lottery. I still do keep track of Take 5 because it is only 39 numbers not that stressful, I ventured into the numbers game because of the odds, I might get into the win4 one of these days.
