I agree with you JimmySand9. Every lottery game is dressed up to look better than it is, because of the marketing. I had planned to buy a few tickets on Monday and then got so busy at work, I forgot. I'm also waiting on a paycheck that's "in the mail." Of course I have $20 - just don't want to get into the habit of buying $20 lottery tickets. I'm already blowing enough on the lottery each week. I wonder if there is any method to buying them - like 2 at one store and 2 at another or 5 at one store. It's supposed to be random like all the other games. I agree this is a great marketing idea and they'll definitely sell out soon, but the chart showing how quickly they are selling almost reminds me of one of those Telethons for charity. I thought of this since yesterday I walked over to the counter and then felt too guilty to buy a $20 lottery ticket after passing a collection truck on the way in that was asking for bags of food for the needy for Thanksgiving.
