would you be more likely to buy a lottery ticket if it were on sale?
Funny you should ask. NC Lottery and Powerball have a promotion in July, where if you buy six drawings online, you get three free. If I still had a debit card, I might be up on that.

Uggh, this is why I don’t like draw games. Still over 25 hours until I find out that I’ve lost.

Losing immediately is way better.

Well, I matched two numbers, which is good for nothing. One more and I would’ve won $30.

The really bad part is that I didn’t leave myself any cash to get in on Tuesday’s drawing.

I actually left the convenience store with $43 still in my pocket yesterday. I had played seven scratchers and was just tired. I bought a two-draw Mega Millions though, for tonight and Tuesday. It’s $410 million tonight, wish all of us players luck.

Mega Millions is $440 million now. Hopefully it doesn’t get too high, lest a sniper win it. Jackpots should go to the regulars, not the last second snipers. I say that, but I didn’t start playing until $300 million. *shrug*

I bought five sets of numbers for Mega Millions on Tuesday, cost $10. Jackpot is estimated at $530 million. I also won $10 off of a five dollar scratcher, so that absorbed some of the cost.

One of my five sets of Mega Millions numbers hit, for four dollars. Also, the jackpot went up to $630 million. Guess I’m doing this again.

You know, I was in such a rush to get my ten grand scratcher home, I didn’t even play the Mega Millions. No one won it tonight though, so it’s up to $790 million. I might get a ticket for Tuesday. It does feel a little greedy to press my luck again after a win, but the jackpot likely won’t be this high again for over a year.

Man, I can’t bring myself to buy a Mega Millions ticket for Tuesday. It’s like something is telling me not to do it. This is a really strange feeling.

Well, good luck to all the people who are playing, even though I bet half of them are wishing it rolls over and hits one billion dollars.

I did manage to go out and get a Mega Millions ticket today. I hope I didn’t just curse myself. Only one set of numbers this time, because it only takes one to win. Plus, I only had four dollars on me, and didn’t wanna spend it all on Mega Millions.

If you’re wondering, I gave that ten grand ticket to my sister, because I didn’t want to mess up my Medicaid.

I bought five plays on Mega Millions. I’ve just screwed myself, the winner is always someone with one play who rarely plays the lottery.

I keep checking to see if they’ll increase the jackpot before the drawing on Friday night. Because, you know, one billion dollars just isn’t enough.

Just under fourteen and a half hours to go until the drawing. And yes, they increased it to $1.1 billion.
