Ever won a lottery?

Post by oldtrucker »

This will be a very well used thread because it happens so often. :smt045 :up:

This is a place to let us know that you won the lottery :smt045
...6/49, Lotto Max etc...
Has it happened to you or anyone you know ? How close have you come to matching all 6?

We matched 6 out of 7 on the Max and got just over 5 grand.

Bought new appliances with it.

Not that close....unfortunately. And you would be surprised....money changes people and not always for the better.

True, but I still would like to give it a try.

I think it was called 'The western' in the late 70s /early80s. My mom won it. I think it was $10K.
Got 5 out of 6 once on 6/49. When I went into the store to scan the ticket the cashier thought I had all 6 and said " Sir, do you realise how much money you've won!!!???" Turned out to be only 1700.
Knew someone in Sask that won the Super 7 25 years ago-ish...8 million... not a close friend.
Trouble is that I started playing regular numbers...big mistake. What if I quit my regular numbers and just get quick picks and my numbers get pulled..... :200:
12-15 years ago, I walked into the casino one night with 60 bucks. Walked out 1 hour later with $34,000. Casino offered me a escort out to my car but I thought that would draw attention and I may end up having someone follow me home and roll me for it. So I walked out like nothing happened...other than the uncontrollable smirk on my face.
Edit.. I think that I've been back to the casino once since the cash out... quit while I was ahead. Some don't quit and think they can go back and win more...

The only lottery I've won is by marrying the woman I love. Pretty sure I've used up all my luck on this, so I never participate in other lotteries.

Did Jack Daniels or Tom Collins whisper that in your ear?
