I don't mean to criticize anyone here, but to those who have purchased this ticket already:
ARE YOU GUYS NUTS!?
That's $50 spent on ONE ticket, and if you lose, you have to explain that you lost $50 on a single bet. And to think there are people out there who will purchase multiple tickets. What if they don't win any of their money back. These high-priced games are only there to intice people into spending a ton of money all at once. It really isn't worth it because you have a slight chance of winning bigger because the ticket price is bigger. It's like the slot machines. I'd rather invest $50 into something more worth it, or more $1 powerball tickets.
"That's $50 spent on ONE ticket, and if you lose, you have to explain that you lost $50 on a single bet."
I have a policy, I don't explain my gambling losses to anyone and I don't expect anyone else to explain their gambling losses to me.
Maybe if I had a hard working spouse supporting me or a family too young to support themselves depending on me I would feel differently.
Buying lotteries tickets may be a waste of money, but I see people happily wasting their money on booze and cigarettes just as much and no one says a thing.
