The Odds Are Not in Your Favor

According to the Mass Lottery, there are 8 million dollar lottery tickets that could win you a million and the odds are one out of 2,016,000.  So, all in all, not a bad payday for the person who bought the ticket and for the store!

So Much Money Is Spent on Lottery Tickets

According to an article from December 2019 from, Americans spend over $1,000 per year on lottery tickets.  To me, that seems like a low number.  Seems that everytime I go in to the gas station to grab a soda for my ride home, I am in front of "that guy" who says,

Hey, yea... uh.... give me five of those and six of those and ..... Oh yeah, can you check to see if these are a winner?!

AAAAAAH!  It drives me insane.  I just want to scream!  To me, it's throwing your money away, but what do I know?  This article is only going to encourage people to play and I say, go for it.  Life is tough enough, so why not?
