    It was only $4.00, but it was a $3.00 profit.:big_smile:

    Do you guys/gals play the Power Ball?
    I always buy one ticket ($1.00) for each drawing.

    One of these days I might splurge and buy 2?

    I buy a ticket now and then (when I think of it ).Guess i'm just tight I hate parting with a dollar or two just to giveto the State.Give them enough as it is. But the old saying (Can't win if you don't PLAY).Got a better chance of getting hit by lightning that winning the Lottery.

    Congradulations on winning !!

    Unfortunatly we don't have the lottery in Arkansas. When I lived in Texas and Colorado I played weekly, but here the only gambling is on horse and dog races, and I do love those horses.

    I am NOT a gambler. Never buy tickets or anything. Guess Im not in the habit. When I go to casinos I cant stand it, so whomever I am going with, I tell them, I'll be around. Kills me to see ppl throw away their hard earned money. I appreciate my dollar, I'm glad I dont have a gambling problem and probably would be the worst person to consult on the subject. Problably wouldnt have any mercy on telling how I feel :roll_eyes:.

    Well, without going into a rant... I have never gambled in my life and never will! Congrats though. ever stand in line at the grocery store and have to wait on "that guy" thats buying two hundred lotto tickets?? I can't stand that guy and personally think they should have a seperate line for gamblers so they don't hold up the rest of us! whaddaya think about that?

    $3.00, that's a nice profit! With all of that money, it's a wonder you even speak to us anymore. :lol: I do play sometimes. I think the most I ever won was $50.00. I was very satisfied with that!

    I play every once and a while. The best I have done is 4 numbers and the power ball in Texas, I think it was about 900 dollars I won, that was along time ago though about the third week the lottery started there. The lottery hasn't long been in NC I think I have played twice, but no winning hee yet.

    I also have never gambled in my life either. About 25 years ago i use to shoot pool and play some poker for money but it was not a Gamble because i was better than the ones i played against. I would never play the lottery because i don't have any control over the outcome.

    congrats to all of you that have won. My gambling days are over. About 7 or 8 years ago, I won $2000.00 at the casinos. I was thrilled to death. But I have lost a lot more than that. Figured I'd better take the money and run. Haven't been back since. I work to hard for my money.:big_smile:
