Although I've never won big money, I keep buying lottery tickets. I admit it, I'd love to win the lottery. And that's just one of the reasons why I buy lottery tickets. I don't get tickets every week, but do get them regularly.Here are other reasons why I buy lottery tickets:
I'm an optimist. Even though the odds against winning the lottery are astronomical, people win all the time. So why not me? I have as much a chance of winning as anyone else.
You Can't Win if You Don't Play. This pretty much speaks for itself. You can't win the lottery if you don't have a lottery ticket. I absolutely would not mind winning the lottery, so I buy lottery tickets.
I enjoy spending the money-at least in my head. Fantasy spending is a big perk of having a lottery ticket. What I like even more than spending my lottery winnings in my head is to spend the money for real, and that's a big reason why I buy lottery tickets.
I'm open to receiving from all channels. I believe the Universe provides for people through all kinds of channels, the lottery being one of them. And in order to be open to that particular channel, you've got to be playing the game.
At the time I'm writing this, the next Powerball drawing is worth $112 million, with a cash value of more than $61 million,Mega Millions is worth $54 million, with a cash value of more than $36 million, and Lotto Texas is worth $4 million, with a cash value of more than $2 million.
Of course, I'd prefer to win the Powerball prize, with Mega Millions and Lotto Texas as my second and third choices. But to be honest, I'd take any one of them and be extremely happy.
That's a lot of money those lotteries are paying out, and that much money covers a lot of dreams-mine and other people's, too.
For me, I'd pay off my mortgage and get a lot of the improvements I've been dreaming about done to my house. I'd travel, visit friends and family I haven't seen in a while, start a scholarship at my alma mater. I'd give enough to each member of my family to make a dream or two of theirs come true, then to my friends.
It's fun thinking about what I'd do what those millions of dollars. Real fun. And that's worth the dollar it cost me to buy the ticket.
And, for the record, when I buy my lottery tickets, I use quick pick, the reason being that if I had specific numbers that I always played, and didn't have a ticket one week, and those numbers happened to come in, I don't think I'd handle it very well. With quick picks, there's no chance of that happening.
