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.
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.

<div style="font-style:italic;">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.</div>
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">
