How much have you ever won on a single lottery scratch ticket??

Ok lets get some bling rolling, lets see who has won the most from a SINGLE lottery scratch ticket.

Me I bought one of those $5 dollar tickets, that had single, double, triple and quadrouple, chances of winning an amount.

So I scratched and won $25, then I scratched and won triple! Yaaaa.

So $75 for me on a single ticket.

Ok lets hear em'

I won $31 on a multi game Pistons ticket.

$20 for the free throw
$10 for matching numbers
$1 for matching numbers

It was pretty cool.

I won fifty bucks on a scratcher in Michigan years ago. At the time, the Lotto was fairly high, so I "invested" my winnings in Lotto picks.

Lotto winnings: $0

My soon to be, mother-in-law, won 200 on a 5 dollar scratch ticket that was in her stocking for Christmas this year. Cha-Ching.

I won $20 on a $1 or $2 scratcher once. I haven't played in a few years though.

been a long time since I've bought scratch off tickets (other than a few for stocking stuffers each year).

But I once won $100 on a $1 ticket.

The question for those lottery winners of $50 or more:

Did you take the lump sum or do as wabio did

About 2 years ago, I hit $500 four times in two months. I haven't hit anything bigger than 20 since.

I think my dad knows somebody that won about $250k from a scratch off.

Maybe it was from a little lotto, but I do know that he found out about 48 hours before the ticket was to expire and was going to leave the country in about 58 hours.

a couple years ago.. a coworkers husband hit 18,000 on a scratch off
and he swears its the only one he had every bought, and he says he just got it because the crew he works with had stopped for drinks and everyone else was buying one

of course.. he turned around and wasted the money.. and they werent in the shape to blow that kind of dough
