I won $100 a couple of months ago, I was stoked!
I would love to win enough to pay off my Mum's mortgage so that she could retire. I'd quite happily still work, I love my job.
If I won millions and millions, I'd probably quit or just not look for another job when my boss retires.
I have never as I don't buy lotto tickets. I love the crossword scratches though but only ever have won my $7 back lol. Some friends of ours went from 'struggle st' living in housing commission and won through tickets at work, a mum & her daughter and another coworker won 2mil each 2 years ago. They are all still working too.
We won $10,000 over 3 yrs ago... Paid for Ivf for our ds and baby moon
My neighbours won $360,000 once. I've one $1200. I don't usually play so it was a nice surprise.
I haven't won anything but money back on lotto, but had a couple of decent little wins on the pokies (like a grand here and there) but probably still coming out behind lol.
Around the early part of the year I was super depressed and remembered I had a lotto ticket floating around in my bag, it was all tatty and creased and I got it checked only to have the server tell me I won $1300. Ordinarily I would have been beside myself to win something, let alone that amount, but the blardy depression made me feel very nonchalant about it.
Months later I used it to have an awesome weekend away with my bestie, my sister and her friend.
Many years ago, mil sent her then husband to buy a ticket, gave him the money and the numbers she always picked. He ended up going to the pub and spending the money, forgot all about lotto ticket. Guess what numbers were the winning numbers? Mil was shrieking with excitement.... until she asked where the ticket is and he fessed up about not buying it. Dh reckons he has never seem somebody run so fast in his life!
I don't know anyone personally who's won more than a $100 on lotto.
I decided this year that in order to dream about what id do if i won millions id first have to enter.lol
So now i enter oz lotto each tuesday, just an autopick. So far ive won a small amount $2-25 a few times.
Fingers crossed .
