    I've won like, 5 bucks. I got excited because I had never won any money like that before. Wonder if anyone else has struck gold?

    A handful of $2-$5. Won over $50 on a scratcher. A lot of my extended family are the $10/week players. They have won a few thousand at one time or another, but how much are they loosing vs. spending. That's $520/year plus the extra you spend when the jackpot is big.

    I bought a lottery ticket once and found $20 on the floor next to the register while paying. So... officially no but I'm still ahead of the game.

    I've known two ladies who won $100,000 each; one paid off her loans and the other built a barn.

    I won $100 about 15 years ago on the powerball. Was all excited pulling out of the convenience store a little fast and got a ticket! There went my $100...

    $50.

    But I guarantee I've spent more than that, so technically, no I have not won anything.

    My aunt won back in the 80s i dont remember how much but it was 6 figures. She also ends up winning a few thousand here and there every year. My grandmother won like $25k as well. I play a few bucks a week on powerball and megamillions as well as being in a lottery pool at work. Sure probably a waste of money but i figure the people who have won big were also sitting at home thinking this is a waste i will never win lol.

    Yeah, you hope that that wasn't it, and that you didn't blow your 'shot' on a just miss....

    I only play 2 bucks at a time...
