Our state has a daily 'spin to win' which is free to play online.
Only one spin per person, per day. The monthly prize is $5k

I play that whenever I remember it. They also give away daily lotto tickets and instant games.

Spending on a huge lottery ticket is buying a fantasy...

not being prone to superstion, i think a 962 should be your first purchase with that payout

#2 should be a suitable race track to run it on id say

What's wrong with having a fantasy?

It's obvious, based on the jackpot, you need to buy a 962. Then a 72hour bug out/go bag.

Is it any different than spending on any other lottery ticket?

Based on the Vegas tip thread, you need to tip everyone who responds to your thread. I think at least $10k per person is reasonable.

Cindy & I would legally change our names...and move. Gawd, it would cause us a nightmare. That said, I would pay off a few mortgages and buy a house for some friends who are struggling..

Maybe sponsor my honorary nephew for the pro 9 ball tour...he's kinda a big fish in a small pond skill wise. The big boys would beat his brains in. Pros always wear sponsor logos on their shirts. On his, a tiny patch: "rich uncle"...it would be a hoot.

When you win, would you consider sponsoring a pool player? He'd put your name on his shirt..

Occasionally participating in Lottery is great fun. I agree it's a very inexpensive entry for a couple days of 'what if' fantasy. I spend yearly what amounts to a single dinner out with the wife for this pleasure. That said I feel sorry for folks who spend big money on all the various contests, "two of those, 4 of those, etc...", who don't appear to have any disposable money.

Bingo! It really is a tax on the math challenged.
