I play sporadically. I keep telling myself to buy one every week though. If you don;t play, you can't win.
Sorry, I don't play a game of chance. ): I work for what I earn. (:
no. The lottery is gambling, which means, overall, far more people lose, than win. And gambling is an addiction? Would I even want to win, knowing that the money I received was taken from people who need it, but are addicted and letting their money drain away?
Further, the lottery is a regressive tax. It is a technique for convincing poor people to pay for state government so that rich people pay fewer taxes. How fair is that?
Consider these points:
- most people who win big in the lottery end up bankrupt, because they don't know how to manage the money.
- rich people don't buy lottery tickets
- poor people don't become rich through the lottery
There are many better things to do with your (hard-earned, I hope) dollars than to buy lottery tickets.
No. I think it's just a waste of money. If you saved all the cash you spent on tickets, think how much cash you would have.
But it's all about the dream that you might just win it one day.....
I have played the lottery before,I just don't make a habit of wasting money I can't afford to lose on money that I more than likely will never win.
NO. I understand that in most things in life "you need to be in it, to win it" but seriously you are at a greater loss with lottery.
No, because the statistics are against me. Yes, sometimes I fall into peer pressure and chip into the lottery pool. But I don't expect to win anything from playing. Just following the crowd.
Nope, I just give them money for picking random numbers and help college kids pay for school.

What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
by Joel Diffendarfer 3 years ago
If you win the lottery, would you write more or less?Once a day, as part of my routine, I walk to the local convenience store, partly to clear my head or concentrate on an aspect of an article or story I am currently working on. And, everyday, I buy a lottery ticket...I sometimes wonder...if...
