IT COSTS MONEY TO MAKE MONEY.

Playing $20 weekly on the lottery will cost you $1,040 in 1 year.

      Well thanks for the equation, I budget $ 19 a week, for 4 games = $988 a year

      I could save $988 a year but then I would have no chance and could not rent the dream !

        I play $20 a month for mega millions for one line of ticket with the multiplier.  Then on powerball I play $60 a month for two lines of numbers plus the powerplay.  So $80 a month for the entire year but I do not drink or smoke or do drugs.  I also do not have a coffee habit like going to starbucks for coffee in the morning to get me going.  I do not think I am breaking the bank for my shot at the millions of powerball and mega millions.-weshar75

          I spend what I want and can afford.  It's entertainment and a dream to get out the rat race.  I for one wish the debbie downers would go to an anti-lottery website and share their thoughts.  Most of us visualize winning and the change of lifestyle it could bring.  I am not here to be negative.  I am here to talk with like minded folks about a common interest we have.  Seriously, coming here and bashing the lottery is like going to church and bashing God, it just doesn't make any sense.

                            I like Starbucks coffee more than playing the lottery. I just love to drink coffee.

                              Yes, Thrifty, it most certainly does...and this applies to everything in life, not just lottery games.

                               

                              L.L.

                              Small games, frequent wins, and regular payouts 'cause.....

                              There are seven days in the week...'Someday' isn't one of them.
