Do you play the lottery?

My husband buys powerball tickets about 3x a month. I rarely buy lottery tickets. It seems I am only forking over my money to the government and getting not a heck of a lot back.

Nope. I don't have that kind of confidence in my money, haha. I used to work at a gas station and it was ridiculous how many people came in to play the lottery whether it was the Powerball or like Pick 3, 4 or whatever. Some guy used to come in EVERY morning and he'd spend at least $10 or so on lottery tickets. It's like, must be nice.. haha, cause I sure as hell couldn't do that.

$10 on lottery tickets? That is 2 gallons of milk and a loaf of bread!

I play netwinner. Sometimes I only get 10 pts. I am not a lucky person when it comes to games of chance.

No I don't play. The chances of winning are just way too low. But then again, someone has to win right!? Maybe I should start playing. However I think I prefer to invest my money over the internet instead :-)

I do occasionally, I don't know why, if people took all the money they put into it and invested it they would probably be able to retire as millionairs anyway.
