    The UK has its own lottery/lotteries.  No reason to wish, "we could".

    clu that's a generous thought. I hope you win if I don't.

    I don't participate in lotteries any more. At my age, the shock of winning would finish me off for sure, and the thought of my relatives, not to mention the tax man, squabbling like Vultures for their share of the cake is not a happy thought.

    Come to think of it I don’t believe it’s one of the seven deadly sins. Let’s see, those are gluttony, sloth, wrath, lust, envy, pride, and greed ......

    Romos, it's not a sin when all you buy is one $ 2. dollar ticket, which is what I buy.

    I was taught Gambling is a sin because it falls under the category of greed. Agree or disagree...Good Read Here>>https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/g201503/bible-say-gambling-sin/

    In Mich, the Mega Millions pot is $ 868 million . The store clerk said one man came in and bought $ 400. worth of tickets. If he has that kind of money , he doesn't need to enter the lottery .

    Hopefully, it's not money needed for necessities, e.g., food, rent, mortgage.. If he wins, fine, but........It's amazing how crazy people go when the jackpot soars. They'll even spend their welfare money and buy hundreds of dollars worth of tickets or more.,The odds against winning are of course, astronomical, which is one reason why the jackpot is so high; it hasn't been won in ages.

    a few days after I entered that---- now it's up to 2 billion. A store owner just told my gentleman friend that one man came in the bought 400 $ 2.00 tickets. He doesn't need money either.
