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.

It only takes one ticket to win, so that is what I buy. Most I have won is $60....

again?

place all their money on the sacred G poster, all $1,060...... of it. That's a lot of pocket change! They have grand plans for how they'll spend their winnings, including booze and bronze statues. But after scanning all 1,060...... tickets, Rob and Big fail to hit a jackpot. Guess that's what happens when you put your faith in wallpaper.

This guy is nuts. The way to win the lottery is using the scientific methods. People should download the apps to generate the lottery numbers. They should also get the Lottery Master Guide if they really want to win. http://bit.ly/yBcGMf

Oh come on people, the man actually does give charity more than yes, I'm going there ... the kardashians(and other celebrities for that matter). he's honestly one of the few people I've seen who are celebrities that uses his money to better mankind. if he wants to buy a lottery ticket then by the gods he shouldn't be bashed for it.
