  • Winning Lottery ticket for Christmas?

    This time of year, many people give and receive lottery tickets as presents.

    If you gave someone a lottery ticket as a gift, and they won the big jackpot with it (let's say $50 million), how would you feel? Would you expect them to share some of it with you? How much do you think is fair? Would you be offended if they didn't?

    And let's say you bought two tickets that day, one for yourself and the other you gave as the gift. You had the winning ticket in your hand (although you didn't know it at the time) and gave it away. Would you lose sleep over it?

    Far from the frenzy of the frantic world above.

    Stupidest present in the world is a lotto ticket. If they don't win it feels like you gave them nothing. If they win something big, you'll feel crappy for years and they'll feel obligated to give you some.

    Only good that can come out of it is if they win a decent amount like $500.

    I just do gift certificates now.

      I think for 'family' lotto tickets are okay. But I generally won't give lotto to non-family members and then 'expect' them to share it with me if it's a gift.

      If they are family members, the sharing is assumed.

        Last year a family member ( an older cousin that I see maybe twice a year.) gave me $5 worth in scratchers. I thought I won the big prize of $1million. I did the happy dance. Had a lawyer friend (that wasn't my mom) look at it. Kinda' crushed the hope. So I handed it to my brother who got all excited, went to return it. Got all of $10.

        Scratchers are good for stockings. I wouldn't go about buying hard core lotto tickets with numbers and everything for a family member because if I play I use my lucky numbers and my lucky numbers aren't others...

          The average lottery winner loses most of it in 5 years(estimated) too lawsuits, family troubles etc. It is a stupid gift.

            I through a couple of the scratchers into my wifes stocking, but as a gift for anyone else (family or not) is not something I would do. Like others have said, if they win they feel obligated to share and if they lose they have a worthless piece of paper. At least if my wife wins I get half since AZ is a community property state.

                Yes, they did. How I wish that had been me. We could use a miracle of that sort right now.

                  I figure if yoiu guy it anhd give it away, you give away whatever is on it, if you want to claim some of the winnings, don't give it in the first place! Keep it for yourself. Gifts don't come with conditions

                    The guy said he doesn't want any of the money. Because it would be like giving someone a shirt and then asking to borrow it. But because he bought it from his pharmacy he gets $5000.00
