The folks who waste their money on this garbage dont care. Its why i call it a stupid tax cause only stupid folks play the lotto and of course LOSE. Its why folks dont have much. I work with a few who are at retirement age but cant but also bi*** about not retiring because they throw their $$$ away.

Well, to each his own. I play Powerball each drawing for a total of $2.00/week. I guess now it will be $4.00/week. I think the most I have ever won in one drawing is app.$100.00. I have done this for 15 years. This is app.$1,560 spent on tickets. Now what have I received in return? Well, my kid went to college for four years on the promise scholarship paid for by the funds from the lottery. Hey, I guess I did win afterall.
