TAZ Lottery Group Join Up Thread

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

Get you winnings in cash or gold.

We'll meet in Switzerland or another financially opaque territory.

Just out of curiousity, Eg.

Since you already spend approximately $20 per month on the Canadian lottery... how much have you won?

Free tickets, the occasional $10, and once I won about $80 back in the 1970's :D

figure I'm about $2000 in the hole...total...maybe more...

I prefer the horse track...been to Mohawk, Flamborough, Woodbine, in Ontario ...Fraser, and the PE Grounds in BC...Golden Gate Fields in Oakland Calif...never make any money there either :D but it doesn't cost me anything...
I can usually go with $50-$100 to the track...bet every race...have a few drinks...a meal...and still go home with approx. what I came with.

I'm just not very lucky when it comes to gambling...never really won anything of any significance...one time I was going through BoomTown...now for those of you who don't know or have never even heard of it...BoomTown is a big casino stuck out in the middle of nowhere on the Calif/Nev border on #80...on the way to Reno...

went in there and told myself I was only going to spend the change in my pocket...I had discovered I had 75 cents in change...went to the nickel slots and won a few small pots and converted them to quarters....won a few more small pots ( enough to fill both jean pockets to over-flowing )...3 - 4 hours later I had lost it all but the 75 cents I went in with...

broke even...but had fun for 3 - 4 hours...and never dipped into my wallet even once. :D

Used to play poker every Thursday at a friend's place...we'd play 30-3...that's everyone in the game starts with $30 and we play for 3 hours...then everyone goes home with whatever they got...friendly game...we invented the 30-3 rule...so that no one spent/lost more than they could afford to...

even then I'd usually just break even.

SWMBO won £400 on the lottery once. She plays about £10 twice a week. And breaks even maybe once in a blue moon.

It's a double roll over tomorrow on the UK lottery BTW
