Mega Millions jackpot is $180 Milllions for Friday 8/22/2014. Are you playing?

Got my tics last Sunday.

Good luck to me.

Gonna get the work pool tics tomorrow morning. Good luck to us. Really to us, because there's a couple of ladies in our pool that have some serious health issues that is going to cause major medical bills.

CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

    I don't know why but it disturbs me that someone would sell a part or livelihood of their body just to play the lottery. Food, rent, family...okay, but gambling?

    Reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode where people sell their memories for cash LOL

    Green laugh

      7 of the 62 people responded that "I only play off of winnings" which means they break-even or win more often than they lose. Whatever system they got going is one heck of a system.  Thumbs Up

      That money's gone fo ever

        I set a firm budget and stick with it. If you're not able to pay all your monthly bills because of lottery spending, you're spending too much.

        Scratchers ~ Cash 5 ~ Powerball ~ Mega Millions
