22m reasons to buy Lotto ticket
By Helen Jack
FINGERS crossed you don??t have to go to work on Monday. Lotto on Saturday night is up to $22 million. Forget for a moment the odds of you winning it are a daunting 8,145,060-to-one; that??s based on a one game entry. But take 18 games and those odds are reduced to a very reasonable 452,503-to-one.
Either way, the question remains; why bother? At Scotts Newsagency in Woodlark Street, Lismore, owners Luke and Trine Scott have been run off their feet.
??Our Lotto sales usually go up by 30 per cent when there is a big draw,?? Trine said.
??A lot of people put in a bit of money together for a chance at the big money.
??A fella near Sydney won $30 million on Power ball the other week, just on a 10-game quick pick.??
And that??s why we bother. For the chance to dream about ??What if??
