Hey guys,

Just wondering if any of you have played AND actually won anythin off these types of lotteries(princess margaret/cancer etc ).

I have played about 10 times over the past 6 years and won squat (it hurts cuz 3 tix at $250..ten times...you know where that money could have gone) but since it was for a good cause...i'm cool with it.

My parents and friends play as well AND THEY WIN ALL THE TIME!!! never anything like the grand prize...but smaller stuff like stereos, tv's, luggage etc. my ex gf's parents won a trip...but not me.....

Have any of you played and won?

Last time I did sick kids, I won 3 prizes off 3 tickets. Two of them were useful, the other was a waste of a prize. None of them had value of more than $150.

Well, as nice as it would be to win, I support H & S because my parents had the diseases, and I support Cancer Society as my mother passed from pancreatic cancer. If I was worried about the money I spend on these lotteries, I would just take it out of the hobby fund.

I have won Lugguge (decent) and I usually get 100 back here and there.

As I said, it would be nice to win big, but that's not why I support these two lotteries.

a Bushnell GPS BackTrack Personal Tracker

Actually I'm quite lucky with these lotteries....few years ago, I won a car (H & S lottery) and lots of other smaller prices, $100, stereo, watch, GPS....I played all three...H&S, Prince M and Cancer......3 tickets for $250.

the odds of winning are good, but I have never won anything over $200 either.

Far better chance at winning something good from these lottos than any of the big government run games of chance. I have won my money back several times. Still play because the causes are fantastic!
