In the last 5 years, I won over $7,300 by not buying a lottery ticket every month
@Gamercat @novaburst Ah, it’s also from 18 here. Only issue is.. all lottery related things are owned by the state so they can ‘regulate’ and keep it in moderation but they spend sooo freaking much money on advertising, for the 4 or 5th year in a row they won the prize for ‘best working TV commercial’. And that’s from the fucking government!
They wanna exclude people under 24 but the new campaign is focused on 16-28..it’s total madness over here. And I cannot start a lottery, that’s illegal
Have those door to door lottery ticket sellers fucked off from whence they came? They don't do that here and would have a very bad time if they did
@trebach They still try.. and I still keep them busy so they spend less time with people who do fall for it 🤓

not to be contrarian, but I have a friend who plays a couple scratch offs a couple times a week. he regularly wins a few hundred dollars, and a couple times won like 2 grand. he's actually made a good chunk of money playing scratch offs. 0.o
I guess, the larger the payout, the worse your chances are...but the inverse is true as well
@Scrith Perhaps the exception! Someone has to win ‘something’
