So no one won the Big Max…or whatever it is called. Sorry I’m not too knowledgeable about all the lottery titles. What I do know is that there are more and more, and the prizes keep getting bigger. In order for the prizes to get bigger lotteries need more losers. Yup that’s right – more losers.
Of course people buy lottery tickets to be a winner – but the odds are you’ll be a loser. In fact you would be further ahead to play the horses – at least there you can play the odds and study the history of the horses – not that I’m advocating gambling on horses. Far from it. What I advocate is investing your money in others.
Whether you donate to your church, a charity, give to a poor cousin, support your kid’s future. The investment and payback will be far more satisfying.
In the meantime if you’re buying lottery tickets I guess I should thank you. You’re keeping my taxes lower.
