Wasn't me. I never buy loto tickets. NEVER.
My entire family both sides, has payed the "poor tax" their entire lives, playing "their numbers" (birthdays, anniversaries etc....). Fond childhood memories of being sent to the store to buy tickets and smokes with a note from my parents lol.
I only buy a lotto max if it's like 60-70 mil, and if I'm leaning against my car pumping gas after a shit day/week at work and I'm staring at the sign that says "60". Here take my $5, and I'll dream about all the ways I'll quit my job if my #'s hit. Sometimes just the dreaming makes the drivehome from work more enjoyable. They probably don't get more than $30-40 a year from me, and I've certainly spent more on worse. I never play the encore though, even though I know 3 people that have won 1 mill on encore. Crazy odds right? Ex neighbor (spent it all and had to sell house and downsize), guy on my ball team (just retired from gm and bought a corvette C5, then won encore, and bought NEW corvette C7 lol), and a guy that works in the shop next door at work (still works).
The problem is, I never remember to check my tickets. I probably have a few tickets in the car and wallet right now that might be winners. I could have worked the last 6 months unnecessarily lol.
Funny story, we used to have a lottery pool at work many years ago. Everybody was in it, even the owner, except for 2 guys, notoriously tight. The owner used to razz the guys about not being in, because if we won they'd be out of a job because he'd "quit" on the spot too lol.
