Issue: 8 co-workers share $365 million jackpot: 7 men, 1 woman who worked at ham processing plant pooled money for tickets/Associated Press

DFO: You’re odds are slightly better than mine at winning a Powerball jackpot because I’ve never bought a lottery ticket. I do buy an occasional raffle ticket, with the idea that the money is going for a good cause. But gambling isn’t in my makeup. I’m too tight when it comes to throwing away hard-earned money in games of chance.

Question: Have you ever won a significant amount of money in a lottery game?
