I play the lottery twice a week. I spend £8 a week on lottery tickets. That’s over £400 a year. And I’ve never won anything more than £10.
So I decide that’s gone on long enough. I’m cancelling my direct debit and I’m going to throw my cash away in one go instead of spreading it over the year. The chances of winning are exactly the same [no chance at all], so who cares?
Plus I’ll be only spending £350 – so win or lose I’m already up at least £50.
The draw is this Saturday, I’ve got 350 chances to win spread over 70 tickets, I’ll let you know how it turns out.
