No, not me. But, I bet I had your attention!
Forty one states, the District of columbia, and Puerto Rico have lotteries. Here in Forida we have drawings twice a week (Wednesday & Saturday nights) for the state Lotto and Powerball. In addition, there are 4 other games with seperate drawings. This leads me to my point................
1. With all these games and drawings, why don't I know of anyone who has ever one anything above the $5 level? That whole six degrees of seperation would tell me that someone in my realm should have won something.
My husband, who does play the Lotto (I don't), says your chances are almost he same whether you play or don't play. LOL
So, my question to you is.......do you know of anyone (include yourself as "a friend") who has actually won anything in a lottery? And, how did their life change if at all?
2. If these games are supposed to raise so much money for schools, how come we still pay school taxes and you hear so much about raising classroom sizes, cutting teachers & programs?
