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


I never ask who they are. They tend to bs when someone starts asking questions.
Looks like bs...I just checked the winning numbers and it looks like I was off only by 6 numbers.

I think the spirits meant tonight for those numbers.

So with the Lotto Max now being twice a week I am not purchasing it any more. Maybe occasionally when it gets big but not $10 a week!

I might just put that $10 away and save it for buying something nice for myself. :smt045

Bumped up

Congratulations, knowing new pickups can have price tag around the amount you won... enjoy.

I won a raffle once, that I didn't even enter. Ended up giving the prize to a neighbour because it wasn't my jam. It turned out they had donated it, and bought tickets for our family!

Congrats to the winner. Neither of my tickets paid off.

I hope the prize is a solid and reliable build.
Something worthy of Family Heirloom status.

Enjoy.

That's a sweet little car.

scratched the game box where you need 3 identicals to win ... nothing matched = $0
scratched the little bonus box at the bottom of ticket ... $1000

So stoked to get home and tell my girlfriend about it that i forgot all about needing to fill-up - and ran out of gas on the highway.
coasted to the side ... directly accross from gas station.

That was a lucky day.


...and a fun night :biggrin:
The adventure continues...

No good story ever started with; "So i stayed home."

A nice little win.
Did you buy another at the station?

Congrats Sobrohusfat. Nice pocket change. :smt045
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

Yes, and that was early 90s when $1000 could still buy you more than a tank of gas and a pack of smokes. lol

$2400 with 5 matching numbers about 15 years ago.

Still purchasing lotto max as that was the only way I could purchase a helicopter. But now I figure I'd have issues seeing the dash and instruments so maybe a boat : https://boats.waa2.com/detail?id=803a54 ... 0tugs%2042

Currently not for sale, difficult to find right now, but I'd worry about that when I win :biggrin:

Won the biggest lottery 50 years ago, the day I met the favorite wife.
We're lost but we're making good time.
