Some of you know, I play weekly (hence the name) and my weekly budget is $30. Right now, I'm down to one rental property, play stocks and run several sites. I play the lottery for smaller amounts not expecting to win the jackpot. I do it for fun... I guess my question is, Are you doing anything else either investments or a business or anything else to get paid?
Is playing the lottery my only plan? Yes and No. Yes, it's probably my only plan to become "rich" However, it's not my only plan for making money (get paid) or obviously I'd be a homeless bum.
I usually only play when the jackpots get up there and it's worth it to throw (quite literally) a few bucks at the jackpot. I play scratch-offs sometimes but never really have any luck on those. I don't consider playing the lottery "fun" for me personally. It's just something I do in a long shot attempt to become rich. I used to make money online but not so much lately as it's gotten much harder to do so. I have some minor investments in the stock market. Other than that the day job is what pays the bills for now until I can "retire" which might not ever happen with the way the economy is going... Yes, there are better ways to try and become rich than playing the lottery but your odds are still very bad. Am I a fool for playing the lottery? Maybe. But if I ever win, I'll be laughing all the way to the bank.
