Occasionally. For bithdays or our anniversary, we don't do gifts but we will get a few scratchers for fun (I won $25 once! Woohoo!). DH bought one of the WA state raffle tickets that he is carrying around in his pocket.

We want to every week but generally don't make it to stores that sell tickets but once a month, so it's just $2-3 a month.

We play.<br><br>
My DH buys 1-2 tickets for the Mega Millions. Usually he buys them twice a week, but if not, he definitely never forgets on Tuesdays. It's part of his routine.<br><br>
Have to say that we haven't recouped a dime of our money though...not on Mega Millions, anyway.

I love scratch off tickets and club keno, but I don't play any of the other games.

Nope. Odds are too great that all you'll do is lose money.<br><br>
Lotteries are a tax on those who don't understand probability.

Usually though I buy scratch 'n win tickets and put them in stockings for Christmas or in cards for Bdays.

I look on it a bit differently -- to me, it's a $4 excuse to daydream for a few days. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
