Default Don't bother buying Lotto Tickets...

I've got the big winner in my wallet.

I heard it was supposed to go to $1billion. I hardly ever play the lotto but of course just had to when it gets up in record making territory.

Now pardon me while I plan where I will live and how many places and bikes will be involved... oh; and one of those new Ford GT's.

I won the Powerball last week... and again this week.
$12 and the $21... so my tickets for the Powerball and the Megamillions for yesterday's drawings were free.

You too! How many tickets did you or are you going to get? I only bought one with the Plus thing making it a $3 ticket. I don't really know much about lotto. I was once told my chances of winning are about the same if I play or don't play so I usually just save my cash for other things.

You have a better chance of getting hit by lightning in your living room on a clear sunny day , then you do winning the powerball .

Someone will eventually win... so the chances of someone winning it are 100%. It's just not likely to be you. The chances of winning if you do not buy a ticket... and the chances of anyone winning who doesn't buy a ticket are 0%.

From a statistical point of view, Lottos are the worst possible form of betting. Only about 50% of the money is returned to the betters. Even the worst possible game or machine in Vegas returns about 90% of the money. Keeping your lotto betting money in your pocket is a wise choice.

G'day,
