I won on pulltabs?!

December 24th, 2011 at 04:59 pm

So I never play pulltabs....(if you don't have pulltabs where you live they are 3 little pieces of paper that are attached together, you buy then for $1 a piece and then you open them up to see if you won any money.....which I never play or win)...I think they are super boring and not fun at all. But last night DH and I were at the bar with some friends and a couple of the friends were really into pulltabs and were saying how one of the jars still had a lot of winners left in it, and not too many pulltabs left. They have a sign that says how many winners are left in there that are over $50 each. There were 35 winners left for over $50 each. It always looks like there aren't that many tickets left cause they are so little....but in reality there were probably like 1000 or more tickets still in the jar. So I bought into that and was playing with them...I bought $20, won nothing. I gave my husband $20 to go try, won nothing. Another friend said lets try together and if we win anything we will split it....so we each put in $40, won nothing. So by now I feel like am idiot but I am also drinking and thinking we HAVE to win cause the jar is so empty.....well my friend didn't want to play anymore, so I said to my husband, I am going to get $100 out of the ATM and I am going to buy 100 pulltabs, then I will quit. He said ok. So I bought the 100 pulltabs...I opened a $50 winner. I thought ok, now I will keep that and at least I got "some" of my money back. I kept opening them hoping to get another $50 or something. I got all the way down to my very LAST pulltab..ticket #1 $100, $100, $100 ticket #2 $100, $100, $100 ticket #3 $200, $100, $100.....equals $1000!!!!!! OMG!!!! I won $1000! There is only 1 $1000 winner in the entire jar of tickets and I am not sure how many tickets they start with.....maybe 5000 or 10000 or more? I was totally freaking out, I just couldn't believe it! Of course I was not up $1000 since I had already put in about $180, but I am so excited, I have never won anything that big at once before! I also gave our friend $100. But don't worry, I won't be addicted to pulltabs, I still think they are boring. Smile

    Woo Hoo!! Awesome, but I must tell you I'm not sure if I would've spend $180 trying my luck. Good for you though!

    I'm glad it worked out, but I agree that I don't generally think spending $180 to TRY to win is worth it.

    I strongly agree with both of you! Smile Yesterday was my last day of work before a much needed vacation and I let loose more then I should have for sure. It was extremely lucky that I didn't come home in the hole a couple hundred!
