      Lottery wins

      I do the lotto every Saturday , I do my own and have always done a syndicate wherever ive worked (I run it ) , but over the past best part of twenty yrs we have put thousands and thousands and thousands on it ........never had a big win at all , ...im probs like most people , I think I WILL win big time one day ..........of course its a gamble and I use to love a gamble back in the uk in the bookies ect BUT if I had invested all the money ive put on the lotto over the last 20 yrs then I would be having a good investment to look forward too sometime ..........but im a gambler ,not an investor ..........

      Has anyone won big on the lotto , how long have you had the same numbers .........any good winning tips

      Im pretty sure I broke even or just beat the bookies regarding the horses in the uk as I studied the form every day and won well ........here in Oz is just like starting all over again , could take yrs to study so ive took a step back .................

      Hi Nick, we have lotto here in Canada. Most I ever won here was $90. I had better luck in Oz, won $4,000 on the lotto. Got it paid out at the local newsagent in Ellenbrook, all in cash.

      Cheers
