Just because I purchase lottery tickets doesn't mean I am not "getting on with my life".  I am certainly not sitting around waiting for the drawings.  It only takes a couple of minutes to fill out a playslip and buy it when I am at the store or gas station.  But, when I travel to Europe I always buy my tickets ahead in a multi-draw just in case!!

Saylorgirl..It only takes a couple of minutes to fill out a playslip and buy it when I am at the store or gas station. 

I on the otherhand will not be visiting gas stations while l am travelling abroad where MM & PB does not exist.

        Someone who nets $1m per year is probably not playing the lottery. Afterall, they probably didn't get into that tax bracket by throwing money away. On the other hand, I would imagine lottery millionaires will continue to play.
