star Rob Dyrdek was so serious about winning the $356 million jackpot in the Mega Millions lottery ... he dropped $700 on tickets ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the skate mogul tell us 37-year-old Rob walked in to an AM/PM in Hollywood yesterday and bought $700 dollars in quick picks ... which he paid for IN CASH.

Rob seemed pretty fired up about his chances at winning one of the largest jackpots in California history -- but sadly it wasn't meant to be ... for anyone ... because according to lottery officials, NOBODY picked the winning numbers.

Now, the jackpot has inflated to $476 million ... the largest jackpot in Mega Millions history. No word if Rob plans to try his luck again.

what a douche bag!! yea Rob, because you need some more luck in your life. for someone who wastes his fortunes on things like foam pits and new teeth for his cousin...give it to someone a little less fortunate. seriously...what a joke!

What is it, 1 in a 170,000,000 chance? Rob you only needed 169,999,300 more tickets to have had a single chance... He really does live inside a Fantasy World...

The dude has a ton of money anyway. $700 is like 70 cents to the common man.

Ummm....I believe you are required to pay for lottery tickets in cash. You can't gamble using a credit card.

uhhWTF    

@ashley...Are you serious? yes he buys ridiculous things but uhm have you failed to notice all the charity work he has done? Like giving away his clothes, skate boards and what about the Safe Spot Skate Spots? I don't see any other celebrity who gives this much. He is a genuinely nice guy who doesnt mind giving away his money or spending his money on fun things for others. I would be okay if he got those millions. I promise you more people would see that money than just him.

On an episode of Rob & Big they went to a liquor store and bought over $1000 in lottery tickets, and didnt win. But hey, I aint gonna hate on him, Rob is the type of guy that just likes to enjoy life, obviously his pockets aint hurting, so why bust his chops?? He does alot for others too... like giving away his tahoe to a fan that won a match of rock paper scissors... cmon people, ROB IS THE **** :)

You know some 80 year old will win. That's what always happens. Some old person who wont even be alive long enough to enjoy it will win.

Who cares.. he obviously has the money, he bought it in cash. I don't understand why you can't use a credit card though-- Illinois is selling tickets online now, so obviously you can use a credit card then, so why can't you in person?
