Why playing the lottery is never a good ideaTerkan: I let my students play this lottery simulator from the LA Times. https://graphics.latimes.com/powerball-simulator/ I had them keep playing with $100 at a time for 5 minutes. Some would win, but they would be even deeper in the hole. you can select bet your paycheck and put in a custom amount. I told them to play with one MILLION dollars, and go to lunch. They came back and they all lost absolutely everything. I let them run it again the next day. Same result. 2 lifetimes of money just… thrown out. Across 15 kids. I hope they got the lesson. You MIGHT win big, and surely you will win a little sometimes, but you are going to lose. Always. Its0nlyRocketScience: That's rule one with gambling: the house always wins. They allow one gambler to win at the expense of others occasionally, but only to give the masses hope, so they keep throwing money at the house. tjdux The show futurama has a great line about this. Mr wong (Amy's dad) owns the Mars casino and when they visit he says something like "This casino pays out 1 billion every hour, and its usually to us" us being the house.

World War Two Veteran Just Won $300,000 in the Lottery on His 94th Birthday
Guest posted a topic in TopicsA World War Two Navy veteran had the 94th birthday of a lifetime when we won $300,000 on a lottery ticket that his daughter bought him. After sending lottery tickets to family members on their birthdays for years, Ervin Smolinski, from South Branch, Michigan, was shocked when he was given a Double Bonus Cashword instant game ticket worth $300,000 on his own special day, according to Michigan Lottery Connect. As it was a family tradition, Smolinski had received multiple Double Bonus Cashword tickets as gifts on March 17, his birthday. "The big winner was the first one I scratched,” he said. Smolinski added that because he's "seen a lot" in his time, he doesn't get worked up too easily, so managed to stay calm when he realized he had won. He plans to spend his big prize on a new shed and a newer used car, as well as invest some of it. “I’m pretty frugal, I always shop sales and take care of my money and that won’t change. The only thing that will change is I won’t have as much stress in my life worrying about money,” he said. http://time.com/4712500/world-war-two-veteran-lottery/
