Lottery

Fri Mar 30, 2012 12:41 pm

Any of the US folks going to buy a ticket for the Mega Millions for tonight? $640 million. Everyone in our office put $5 in the pool. I'll probably pick up 2-3 tickets for myself later as well.

The odds are horrible, but for cash option of $460 million I figure I'll take a chance. $5-10 won't break me anyway.

I've played the lottery a whole one time in my adult life.. If I ever did win, I posted what my wife and I would do with the jackpot last year..

Very admirable.

I don't play often. twice a year maybe and only when it gets real big.

First time buying lotto tickets was this morning when I stopped to get gas. Bought $5 worth of tickets. Good luck to everyone who is playing :)

My wife and I will throw $10 at the lottery once a month or so. We have been in on this Mega Millions every draw for the past few weeks. Got 10 lines this time.

Yeah, that sucks.

I'm one of the lucky Floridians that is less than an hour from the GA state line. Lol.

We got a pool going in our NOC.
