Lotto: Price of Having Your Dreams Crushed
As I continue to play Tattersalls lottery games (Monday & Wednesday Lotto, Super 7’s Oz Lotto, Powerball and Saturday Tattslotto), the price of having your dreams crushed becomes more apparent.
In the past I’ve simply played lotto and palmed off my losses to bad luck. It’s only since the New Years Draw, and as part of my new years resolutions, that I committed to recording every single game I play, how much I spend, and how much I loose.
That’s why I’m writing this blog. To share with all of you the cost of buying into the “dream” that is so openly marketed on lottery games.
As a case example, let’s look at Powerball. In 2012 alone, I’ve played:
1 x System 9, 5 x System 8’s, 13 x System 7’s and 1,525 Standard Games. Total spend on Powerball has been $1,641.38. In total I’ve won back $259.75.
Meaning the price of having my powerball dreams crushed has been $1,381.63 so far.
