You Have Hit The Jackpot!In the casino world, high rollers are called "whales". They are treated like kings with free rooms and all the comps they could want.

How about us in the lottery world? When you go to buy your ticket do they roll out the red carpet?

Does the line part for you as you parade to the head of the line? Big Grin 

Most of the time I'm just a little fish in the big pond and have to wait my turn like everyone else.

What about you :)

How much do you spend at the counter???

      I voted as a hungry shark. I'm lean, mean and a winning machine.

          If you spend under $1 (.50 cents), what type of fish would that make you.  What?

                  Wait a minute........ a turtle is not a fish (is it??) Please don't veer off topic and hijack your own thread...........    I say I'm an "aspiring whale" ........  I hope that works.

                    But because turtles also co-exist in lottery ponds with other types of fish, an exception should be made here.    Blue Angel

                            Dispite my "call name", Litebets, I frequently bet..(and I'm a shamed to say it), like a shark.

                            I get my share of hits, but I haven't made up the difference this year...as yet...Lep
