    I was at the American Legion today watching the Masters and won $2103 playing the Maryland Lottery "Racetrax" game. :cool:

    When I cashed the ticket, I got two $1000 straps, one in $50s and the other in $20s. Lo & Behold...the note on the top of the $50 strap was a "rare" 2017A Star note! :woot:

    Wow. Nice icing on top of your very sweet cake, there.

    I just won two bucks on a scratchoff. Does that count? :p

    I spend $1-5 maybe two or three times a year at most. Not a big gambler. I did hit $500 on a $2 scratchoff once upon a time, and $100 another time. The other wins have been peanuts. But fun, of course.

    I figure with that $500 payout, I'm still ahead, if you count what little I've spent on lotto over the past two decades.

    I love hearing about times when someone has won something sizable in the gaming industry. Nice daily double, @yakpoo.

    I have no idea who actually pays a premium for late date Star notes, but I pull them out of circulation whenever I find them...especially crisp, Unc examples like this one.

    I play Fantasy Golf and I have Corey Connors on my team. He hit a Hole-in-One on #6 yesterday and I bought a round for the bar...Karma. :)

    Nice find! Did the rest of the $1000 strap of $50s have any star notes?

    Nice win and a great bill! Now you've gotta go through all of them to see if you have any more.
