I don't gamble that much. But I did win $100 at the race track one night. On the scratch off, I won $20. I think I'll get some lotto tickets tonight.

That sentence is quite a mouthful - no pun intended. Six hours ~ I think I would of walked away from that table with at least $7,200 plus tips. I love blackjack

Just got an email that I won in the Slovakian Lottery!!! I've contacted the Barrister and am now waiting to see how much that jackpot will be! But back here in the states, I've won a buck here and two bucks there. That's if I remember to buy a ticket...

Two weeks ago I won $250.00 in Vegas on a penny machine, I came home with more money than I took, first time ever. I'm in a lottery pool also.
