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.

not sure who this guy is or why he's on TMZ but anyone who spends 700.00 on the lottery deserves to NOT win. You have a better chance of getting hit by lightening or being elected President then you do of winning the lottery.
.
The odds of winning are 1 in 176millions, buying 700 tickets does not increase the likelihood of winning enough to justify the spend. If you read the stories about the people who do win, its NEVER people who buy 700.00 worth of tickets...it's always people who buy 3 or 4 tickets.
.
If i were to be blessed with the good fortune of winning this jackpot, I'd keep enough to make sure my family was well taken care but would give a large portion to charity.

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?
--------
Personally I think it's a bad idea to allow people to use credit cards to buy lottery tickets. Seems very irresponsible of the lottery commission to allow "dreamers" to incur debit in the hopes of hitting it big. But since this is America, I'm sure the lottery commission is OK getting the money and credit card companies are happy to get the interest...so I guess it's a win-win
