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.

I dont think celebrities should be allowed to play lotto since they already have plenty of money! leave it for the people who really need the money!

Word to the wise.. Never get the quick picks.. always pick your own numbers.. you have a better chance at winning!

im pretty sure he only did this to see if he could win. and even if he did, i bet he would give it ALL to charity. he has a big heart and does alot of good things for charities.

Gambling is only fun when you can afford to lose the money. I don't know this guy but if he's a "star" he can probably afford to drop $700 here and there.

If he's so rich, why didn't he just buy 7 million tickets so he'd at least have a 50-50 chance?

Because he's just an idiot. Maybe a rich idiot who is such an idiot he can't even figure out that he could've spent $7-10 million to win $356 million (before taxes), but still an idiot just the same...

Why are the rich always trying for a little more ? It's too bad he didn't win, it would of put a spotlight on greed in America.
