I have played these games for many years. Like any serious player I have won may small bets ($ 2.00 up to $10,000) for anyone wanting the big banking you most likely will spend much time and $'s, I did! That's not to say that a first timer can't win on a single ticket and play once but that's a rarity. Actually, I was playing bingo and won a substancial prize the night before. I was kidding with my wife and stated, "could we handle that sizeable amount?" Never looked at my tickets that night, but I did get a letter from the state and a phone call confirming everything three days later. I am not the type of person to go larking on a busy street bare naked, so no, I wasn't in shock or anything else that you would see on a tv game show after a nice win. I sat down at the dinner table with my family and ate a pretty good meal of fried pork chops, mashed potatoes and gravy, blackeyed peas and a chocolate milkshake. When we were done, I told my family that I had a very serious announcement and that I didn't want to be interrupted until I was finished. They all knew that I went to the hospital for a tumor biopsy workup and they were completely silent! I pulled out the first class letter from the state and layed it on the table; said that I was thru speaking and walked off. (Ha, ha, ha). It did my heart good to hear the silence to utter pandamonium.
So you see, Rebeccah, that's how I got my jollys and had a wonderful nights sleep.
