Aloha Friday #25 / Friday Follow



Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog . Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the Mr. Linky there if you are participating.

OMG, Haven't played since January!  My question this week is: Do you play the lottery?

One of my friends got me into the Mega Millions lottery.  It is across many states, and is often over $100,000,000!!!  I also buy the occasional scratcher.  So far, I haven't won any money on the bi-weekly drawings, but I do occasionally win on scratchers.


I'm also taking part in Friday Follow.  Please follow my blog and leave a link so I can follow yours.  Thanks to One 2 Try, Hearts Make Families, and Midday Escapades.

I've only bought lottery tickets for drawings a few times- when it goes up to crazy amounts of money, but never won any of those.
I also occasionally buy scratch-off tickets. I don't think I've ever won anything over about $20. I actually bought one this weekend because I found $2 in the car while my DH was pumping gas and we won $7! Woo! I'm rich! lol

Dee said...

Nope, never...but my dad is convinced his lottery investment is gonna pay off and he's going to win one day. :)

Sue said...

My husband does. If it is a 'big one' and unfortunately he is somewhat addicted to the scratch tickets! I personally never buy them. I'd love to win big though!

Rach said...

I'm in a syndicate at work , but will often play the euromillions as well. I keep dreaming I'm going to win, but that will only happen if I buy a ticket!

Lori said...

No, I actually live in the only state where gambling is illegal and we don't have a lottery. My husband travels to work and he's been known to buy an occasional ticket.

Carrie said...

no...did win $20 on my birthday from a scratch off once...

Laufa said...

Never play lottery. I do win radio call in shows every so often.

Buffie said...

When the jackpot gets large we'll usually buy a ticket or two. It isn't a regular thing though.

Whimsical Creations said...

I don't.

Vicki said...

We buy lottery tickets sometimes, but not every week like we used to. We've won a few times playing Lotto, Play 4 and Cash 3. We've also won with scratch offs.

Kelley said...

I don't play! I hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Cynthia Krajcarski said...

Y'know, we never play the lottery... I get tickets for my birthday from family, but the most I've ever won was $10.

I don't know why we don't play... I suppose it's just not worth the effort.

Cathi said...

We don't play and never have.
Happy Aloha Friday!

Casy Schweickart said...

My husband plays the lottery on occasion but I have actually never bought a ticket.

Midday Escapades said...

Happy Friday Follow and Aloha Friday! I also need to get back to buying lottery tickets. You can't win if you don't buy a ticket, right? Good luck to us both!

Serendipity is Sweet said...

I buy them once in a while. I used to buy them weekly. I once picked 5 of 6 numbers in the lotto and won $853. I've also won $50 and $25 on scratchers once or twice. I don't play very often anymore. It's been a while since I've won anything.

Good luck!

Pamela M. Kramer said...

No. I put my $ in a piggy bank.

Smellyann said...

Nope, we don't play. I played a couple times when I first turned 18, and I won a couple dollars each time. lol Hubs loves scratchers, so I'll buy a few once in a while for him, but he's never won much.

Steph said...

I played with my coworkers when the jackpot was huge. Other than that not too often!

Have a great weekend!

Michelle @ Flying Giggles said...

About a month ago we started playing every week. We teamed up with some friends and we play together to split the pot. I hope if they ever win they will be honest and share, maybe we should have a contract written up...lol!
