    executeksearch,OK, OK, OK. I play the lottery from time to time too. But I have to admit, it`s called the lottery, not retirement investment. Hey, executeksearch, where do I send my dollar to invest in you? When/Where will your winning numbers appear? I invested some in me, there`s no reason I shouldn`t diversify my portfolio with your brand!

    I think people play the lottery because...1. they see people winning2. they dream to win3. only a dollar investment4. win or loose results within a couple of daysOK. That`s really the reason I play.

    I`m very split about gambling, seeing both it`s difficulties and it`s benefits (it has really boosted the municipal treasury here and created alot of jobs).  I can`t say I know enough or have enough conviction on the subject one way or another, as I have friends who work in local the industry, and a family member who was hurt by it.For the most part though, the family experience with lotto was nothing more than a inexpensive hobby.  What`s interesting is everyone knew they weren`t going to win big... what happened at the family business was everyone in the truck would get a daily ticket, and it`d be much more of a family bonding thing than a winning thing (although I`ve won a few times, nothing more than enough for a few extra at the bar... ahhh, those were the days).To this day, although I don`t work there anymore, I still on occasion will plunk down a dollar.  I like iouone `s list of reasons.  They make alot of sense.

    My husband and i play when the "megamillions" gets so big. Not that we think that we will win but b/c it gives us something to talk about. He goes on and on about airplans and boats and I talk about all the people I could help in the world. It is just fun for us and the dollar goes to the schools and the elderly so nothing is ever lost.
