The very FIRST Lottery Game I ever played was a $1 scratch off ticket in 2005. It was a Blackjack type of card game. If your Card was higher than the Dealer Card, without going over 21, you got a prize. :) I won $5 on this $1 ticket. LMAO! : D

 

What about you? :)

"What's your ADDRESS?" May be the CREEPIEST question EVER asked to a Lottery Winner! O.O WTF?

      The first Lottery game I played was back in the 80's . The $1.00 scratch off in Virgina. I lived in N.C. and a guy from work would drive to Virginia and buy a hundred of them and then sell them at work for $1.50 each.

      Taking it one drawing at a time.

        I can't remember the name of the ticket or the exact year, but my first time playing the lottery was when I was a kid and my mom bought some scratch off tickets and gave me one to scratch off. I had to be around 11/12 years old.

          Very first lottery game I played was Ohio Lotto way back sometime in the 1980's. I think (not sure) that is the only game going on then. Don't remember Pick 3 or Cash 5 type game.

            Deutsches Hessen Lotto in the early 1970s while stationed in Germany. 

            It was once a week back then, aired on Saturday nights.

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              I did the same thing with my kids when they were young. lol

                  Once the German lotto, maybe around 1977. My father played it.

                  There were Americans in Bitburg. Ronald Reagan once was there.

                    The Ohio Lottery's first game was the fifty cents a ticket Buckeye 300. They started drawing the pick-3 game in 1979 and I played my license plate number and won $1083 on their second drawing. Even though they advertised "Play, win, and collect tonight", it took me two weeks to collect my winnings; took two days just to collect the $83 box win.

                    It's not my fault! I voted for Amy.

                      Wow. I don't remember Buckeye 300. Only the Lotto. But, I wasn't into the lottery like I am now.

                      And at the time about the only game I could afford was the Lotto. 2 lines for a buck.

                        Hmm. Speaking of older Family Members playing Lottery, my Grandma DID send me to the Corner Store to buy her scratch off Lottery tickets. I was like 11 and the Clerk sold it to me when I said it was for my Grandma. This was around 1995, no way would a Clerk sell to an 11 year old in 2021. ;)  Grandma let me scratch off a Snowman game and said something like,"My Snowman didn't match any winning numbers, so it's a losing ticket. Mom played a scratch off ticket too a little later and won $30. :)

                         

                        So, technically, the Snowman ticket Grandma told me to buy for her was my FIRST Lottery Game I played. :) The Blackjack Card Lottery ticket was my first Lottery Game as an ADULT....;)

                          * Pick 3. My stars were aligned because l used LP QP'S  and for a $3 wager, l ended up winning $300 plus in 2012. l even know how l spent part of that money. Took the wife to see a live show of Sherlock Holmes at the Chanticleers Theatre in Castro Valley.

                            My first was a $1 scratch off called Louisiana Treasures, which was the first game for the Louisiana Lottery when it started. That was in 1991.

                              On second thought, the first lottery game was the choice of parents before birth. There was a loddo to win.
