    Biggest Personal Lottery win?

    Me just winning a $50 on a scratch off got me interested in what was your guy's biggest win.

    My first ever lottery ticket was a $100 winner. That was my biggest.



    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    I don't believe you're 21. Clones21 is going to turn you and the store that sold that ticket to you into the authorities.

    You're looking at jailtime now buddy.

    I don't think junior high hall monitors have that authority.

    first pull tab I ever got was only .50 and i won $50 and then on a pick three i won $100..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I won a billion dollars once... Gave it to Pollard to bowl in the SEZ... He said he'd do it as long as no one on CF ever discussed Ukrainian brides or yoga pants...

    Re: Biggest Personal Lottery win?

    I won $180 on a scratch ticket in college, when then that is roughly the equivalent of winning $1 million.

    Re: Biggest Personal Lottery win?

    The only ticket I've ever bought I won $4. A little shy of that half a billion dollar jackpot I was aiming for.

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Re: Biggest Personal Lottery win?

    I won $100 about two years ago on a scratch ticket. I thought I had only won $5, but they scanned it and said it was $100. I didn't complain.

    And yeah, I find Iowa's 21-law to buy lottery tickets (gamble) quite dumb since nearly every other state has a lower age limit.

    My grandpa won like 10k off a illinois little lotto ticket I believe. Biggest win I've ever personally heard of from someone I know.
