We got the California Super Lotto Plus, I know elsewhere in the US there is something called Powerball.

I've never tried it. I just figured the statistical probablility was way too high that I would loose my dollar, then there are those that pay for 10 tickets each wednesday and saturday before the lottery.

I wanna try, but if it involves random numbers I'll fail cuz I got this deal with patterns and I can't be random at will.

Experiences? The chance at winning is tempting to say the least.

The numbers don't have to be random. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 has as much chance of winning as anything else.

The Jackpot in the German lottery today is 24 million €.
Perhaps I´ll make a try today. I know that statistical I`ll rather be struck by lightning than that I`ll win the jackpot.

I won (a whoppin' $3) the first time I played Powerball... be rather hooked ever since. Never buy more than a single ticket though. Very rarely play state/local Lotto.

Oh, and just in case anyone's curious.... tonight's Powerball drawing is for $180,000,000

I don't do the pick a number ones, but I do the scratch off tickets all the time. I've made quite a bit of money off them.

This is the reason why I am playing since two weeks, I hope I will get the jackpot today or on Saturday.  Wink

So there are different kinds, how many are there? Are the winnings significant, uh that's vague, I mean "I'd be in it for something more than a few bucks"

Someone at work last year asked what would I do if I won a million dollars, I said I'd get a milion more lottery tickets for the bigger one, I gotta get something outta that.  Wink

I've got 2 lines on for the Lotto which should be drawn in 15 minutes time.

Never played it yet.

I object to part of my money being used for "good causes" such as Lesbian tofu vest knitting workshops in Islington, and the rest going towards making some chav a millionaire and Burberry's profits even higher.

Alaska doesn't have a lottery, but we do have pull tabs, which are like scratchers but without the scratching and much lower prizes. (top prize is usually $500) And you have to play them in pull tab parlors. I've never played pull tabs either.

I wish I had not played either today, no luck for me.  Sad

Well, I hope nobody won, then I have another chance on Saturday. Big grin
