Yesterday at work, I arrived to find that one of my co-workers had bought a little stocking tin with a scratch-off lottery ticket inside for each of us. There were a couple people who got $2 or $10-- but in a scratch-off game of blackjack, I somehow won $100!

Needless to say, I'm still giddy about that, given the fact that I never win anything. Maybe I cashed in some of my good karma I'd been building up, I don't know.

Anyone else ever win any kinda money with a lottery ticket?

That's awesome! The most I've ever won is, like, a dollar. I never buy them for myself, but sometimes I'm given I guess I'm ahead one buck.

I won $100 (Canadian!) in a scratch-n-win crossword game once. I'm still waiting for the 40 million.

I used to pop $1 for a lotto ticket (pick six) when the total got big when it first started in Illinois maybe injn the mid-80s. One week it had gotten to 40 million, so I bought a ticket and won $52. That's about it. I aam sure I have spent that away on tossing a buck into the group buy at work from time to time since.

The most I've won on a scratch-off is 10 bucks. I rarely buy scratch-offs, but I love buying powerball tickets. It's nice to buy one and know that you're a potential millionaire for a few days.

But as soon as I when that jackpot, I'm a ghost. I'm leaving my apartment, my job, and everything here. My roommate and my boss will have to find out what happened to me by seeing on tv.

My work held a 50/50 draw last spring, where I won $1600 in one shot.

I was going out for my birthday that night anyway with a group of friends, so the deal was anyone from the office who wanted to turn up would get a free drink. I felt it was only fair.

Of course, I failed to pay the bill when I was carried out by my best friend, catatonic from the alcohol - and a co-worker had to cover the $300+.... He was good natured about it though when I paid him back on the Monday.

I won $100 on a PowerBall ticket once. (I think I matched 3 of the numbers, but no PB).

Most I've ever won on the UK lottery was 65 (4 balls in a pick 6 from 49), and then I somehow managed to repeat the feat just one week later, though only got 50 that time. That was about two years ago and I haven't got anything above the 10 prize (3 balls) since.

Our work syndicate did win about 1,200 just a few months back (5 out of 6). Trouble is, once we'd split it between all of us it was like 38 each or something.

Three numbers plus the Powerball wins $100. I also did that once a few years ago off a ticket in Missouri.

Biggest lottery winning's probably about $5-10. But I've won more in contests, like a free trip to Disney World when I was 10.

I've won 50 and 40 bucks respectively on scratchers...but that's about it as far as big winnings. I don't really play the lottery though...not into it.

I won $500 on a scratch off I got in my stocking when I was 10.

My parents kept the money.

We just got the lottery in Oklahoma earlier this year. Powerball starts in 2006.

But I have won a few free tickets, $2, and $17 on one dollar scratch off tickets.

Won 10 bucks once or twice on 649, same on Super 7 (a few $2 and free tickets on each respectively, of course)... 5 bucks on Keno one time (hate on the keno). Best ever on a scratch ticket for me was $5, got $10 on Nevadas once (those stupid pull open tickets).

Best ever: about $125 on a 50/50 draw when I was in college.

My old boss won $125 000 on Keno once, bought at his store so he also got the seller's prize.

I rarely play but I usually break even on the scratchers and I've never won one of the big lotto. I'm waiting on that better chance of lighting to hit me before I win something like that.
