    The only people who financially depend on the lottery are the people who work for the lottery commissions and the people who sell systems. The rest of us are spectators.

    That money's gone fo ever

        It's a hobby that gives me some extra $$$. Time wise it's a part time job, but I have a blast with it, so it's not work at all. Do

        I depend on it financially? No. I'm not that good yet. But I will be someday.

          I like your reply all the way around because it ties the game into both aspects. Anything we devote our time into for money is work and we must be paid for our time at some point...at least that's the way I feel. How 'bout if we combine the two and call this deal a 'jobby'? Man, do I love my jobby!!! Cheers

            Just a hobby, I depend on my job.

              The only people making a steady living off lottery proceeds are major jackpot winners.

              And there aren't many of those.

              It's much easier to find prevaricators.

                Nope, I don't play the lottery as a career or a job. I think that would be unrealistic for most people. I play for fun/hobby, but with the hope that I will win a top prize.

                    Your chances of dying at the age of 100th are greater than winning a lottery jackpot.
