Is happiness really playing Bingo?

does anyone buy into the lottery?

what prompted you to get into it? needed the cash, weekly tradition, couldn't resist the pot?

whats your favorite game of chance? bingo, Lotto649, the peelies, crossword, pick four?

remember when they used to annouce the number on tv with the balls, and the hostess' name was Yolanda Vega? and she rolled her name so so awesomely. I must of said her name 10000 times and laugh, Yolaaaaaada Vegah!

I've never won anything more than like 10 bucks, but still I play from time to time, mainly as a lark... buying comics and candy and say, what the shit, this'll keep me entertained for thirty seconds. Its totally a waste of money but I know people who go religiously and pick their digits... nuts!



what're your lucking numbers, mine ain't working....

i used to play one 6/49 set plus two quick picks once a week or so, then it doubled to two bucks.

now it's my one set plus one quick pick if i remember....

you can't win if you don't play blah.

Bingo is only cool if you can smoke butts while you play, which you cant do in NY state. So for me no, it actually sucks.

everytime I see the pot going up to like 10 billion dollars... I think "yeah.. but if i win I'll probably have to share with some real jerks...."

I think that grand for life would be real sweet though, I could dedicate my time on more important things... like hucking creme eggs at people while they bike by!

scalding hot microwaved creme eggs even!

see here's what i'd do: sell my say 14 million winning ticket for 13.3 or so million to a rich SOB.

i stay private, but filthy stinking loaded!

then i'd court all sorts of people and only reveal my riches once they put out.

or marry me.

I play Keno. Ive won $500 twice. one number away from $50,000 both times. one time it was literally one number too. I had 24 they had 25. that sucked.
most Ive ever won was $6000 on pro-line golf, point spread.

I only do the Princess Margaret/Sick Kids lotteries with people from work. I figure that the hospitals get the chedda regardless, and the prizes are pretty hot.

I play the super 7 and 649 because I want money. I use to buy scratch tickets but I never won anything...I never win anything with the lottery either, but atleast it's worth more.

Chance of winning the lotto 6/49

6C49 = 49!/43! = 49*48*47*46*45*44 = 10,068,347,520:1



Chance Of winnig a 35:1 playing roulette 37:1 the chance of winning 5 times in a row is 69,343,957:1 or about 150 times better than winning the 6/49. If you started with 5$ and won 5 times in a row you would leave the table with 262,609,375 or about 20 times what you would get winning the lotto 6/49.

Yes you really fair much better at a casino than the ontario government lottery.

3/7 1713460 FREE PLAY
These are from the OLGC's website for the most recent Super 7 game. so, the number of people who at least won their money back, was 1,713,460. Almost 400,000 players won 5 times the cost of their ticket. Almost 10,000 people won $100, etc.. And one ticket won the kitty. Of course, it doesn't mention how many tickets were played.

People do win the lotteries. When it comes down to it, it gives people a kind of entertainment. As long as it stays that way and doesn't become an obsession, where's the harm? No worse than shooting several hundred dollars up your nose, anyway, and it's legal!

happiness is not in playing, but yelling BINGO. Everytime I scratch and win even a free ticket I yell at the top of my lungs and yes, it makes me feel better.

The lotto can suck my non-existent dick. I've never won so much as a free ticket, so I stopped playing
