* ''TheProudFamily'': Dejenay wants to buy a soda because of a $50000 instant win sweepstakes going on.

* ''HanginWithMrCooper'' and ''{{Webster}}'' both had plotlines where someone buys a lottery ticket with their age as one of the numbers (so they think), and everyone thinks that the someone has won the jackpot... until it's discovered that the character fibbed about their age when buying the ticket. D'oh! (Once again, the "5 numbers out of 6 is still worth a lot of cash" angle is ignored.)

* Minor subversion: On an episode of ''{{Nurses}}'', the nurses' lottery ticket numbers are drawn -- but the person who bought the ticket got one of the numbers wrong. But this time, they actually _do_ realize that 5 of 6 numbers wins them a good deal of money, after the {{Aesop}} on how they really do care about the person who screwed up.

* One episode of ''EverybodyHatesChris'' has Chris going to buy a lottery ticket for his dad, but he decides to spend the money on something else instead. Naturally, that's the day his dad's numbers turn out to win.
* Almost every episode of ''MarriedWithChildren''.
* The first half of the ''{{Scrubs}}'' episode "My Butterfly" has everything going wrong for the characters, resulting in a patient dying on the operating table. The second half replays the day with everything going ''right'' ... [[MoodWhiplash and then the patient dies anyway]].

* One Disney Ducks comic by Keno DonRosa, "The Sign of the Triple Distelfink", reveals that LuckyBastard Gladstone Gander's birthday is the one day of every year when he's unlucky. Unfortunately for many readers, the story ends with the discovery that the titular magical symbol, which is what gives Gladstone all of his infamous luck, was flawed when created, and it's fixed, meaning this one chink in Gladstone's armor is gone. It's not a very popular story for that reason.

* ''TheJamieFoxxShow'': Some hotelier lady won't let some worker at the hotel buy his regular lottery numbers. And it turns that no one won... and that the "asinine" winning numbers of 1-2-3-4-5, were that worker's usual numbers (Not really asinine, as statistically speaking, any sequence of numbers is exactly as likely as any other.)
