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 them...so 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.



A few facts about Samoa Joe:

1. The eternal conundrum "what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object" was finally solved when Samoa Joe punched himself in the face.
2. When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Samoa Joe.
3. A Handicap parking sign does not signify that this spot is for handicapped people. It is actually in fact a warning, that the spot belongs to Samoa Joe and that you will be handicapped if you park there.

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.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"Because personally if I was being choked by Ric Flair, my personal reaction would be well, "Glrrrrkkk, can't breathe" but after that... "Man, I'm being choked out by Ric Flair, this is so cool." and then some more "Gllllrrrrk, can't breathe."" (Llakor)


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.

The most I've won is about $75 or so through Lotto 6/49 in Ontario.

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

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.
