Stupid addiction my father got me into.

I think I spend around $20 a month...

I tried to put a stop to it like a month ago but then somebody who hardly plays at my moms job won $5,000.

Hearing little stuff like that burns in the back of ya mind on the line at the 7-11 and sucks you back into it like "You know what...$#$% it. Gimme $3 on the Powerball"





















Then you walk into your gas station one day and you see a pic like "We had a winner last week"

for ever winner, millions of losers.. remember that.

Go to a sports event and think of all the people physically there In front of you. Multiple that by a couple hundred and you have your figure.

As a stat junky and guy who studied that in college, its real easy for me to say no.

I tend to test the system once in awhile, so im not totally clean on the lottery front.

I knew someone who spent whole paychecks on stacks of lotto tickets. I mean huge stacks each month like 500 tickets. He won 50,000 once and 10,000 also. I think he may have spent more then he won.

I'm the same as WallyHopp when it comes to things like this.I ALWAYS take into consideration that the odds of me winning are *Jay-Z*slimmer than that chick in Calvin Klein pantses*Jay-Z*,so it's EASY for me to say no to that.I'd rather spend my money on something that's guaranteed.

What me and my friends do is that

its normally 10 of us when we go out to chill

so before going out... we all put in about 3-5$ on scratchies...

we normally always make more than what we put in... and split that money equally to put towards what we are doing that day

Yea.

People tend to say that a lot to you when they know you play lotto.

"What time is it?"

"Its 7:56...You should play those numbers"

"Shut the hell up"

Then you end up playin em...

Word from the wise

The Lotto balls have weights in them so they already know what numbers are going to pop up

So if your lazy and do a quick pick which lets the machine pick your numbers YNS cuz your automatically gonna lose.

your best bet is to pick your own random numbers.


And the idiots who play birthdays, and other dates and crap your not smart also. Whats the ODDs of every1 in your familys birthday coming up in 1 sequence? Damn near impossible.

Picking your own numbers is def the way to go.

Been playin the same numbers for about 3 months now for Mega, Powerball, + Sweet Million.

The 3/4 number games I just pick whatever comes to me...

The only people who play birthday numbers and stuff I know of tend to be older folks...but those old bastards are usually the people that win jackpots.

So I dunno...
