    My wife would surely be jumping for joy as it means more bags and shoes.

    Do you play the UK lottery? Do you play online, or go to an agent? Have you had much success?

    We all get a lot out of lotteries!

      Similar to the era of Prohibition, what if public outcry and government intervention outlawed the gambling industry, including all the state run lotteries.

            Smash                                                                                             No No                                                                                                    Crying

       

      Would you try to find another venue for your lottery fix? Perhaps look for, or even form your own numbers racket?   Type

       

      Do you think this would be a good moral step forward for our country, or see this as "Big Government" butting their nose where it didn't belong?

      If you were not able to gamble anymore, how would you instead spend that discretionary money?     Roll Eyes             What?
