What Did You Win in the Lottery?

I've never been much of a lottery player, but I did win $5 in a scratch-off card.

How I Won the Lottery

When I'm feeling lucky, I'll occasionally buy a scratch-off card. This time, I spent $1 and won $5. So I used the $4 profit to buy four more cards. None of them were winners, so I didn't end up with any extra money. But I had fun, and didn't lose any money, either.

Tips and Tricks

  • I never spend more money than I'm willing to completely lose in the lottery.
