I do believe they put it on lottery tickets. You have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than winning. Go to the convenience store around the 1st through the 5th, more people buying lottery tickets and scratch & sniffs than anything else. If they would add up what they spend a month as opposed to what they win they would find that most of the time they do not win anything.

Great story Kimberly.
Better spelling, grammar & punctuation than Nell Barton.
Check out his POVs - yikes what's he saying?
A casino "guest"?
Is that like "we're having guests for dinner?"
I thought these people were "gamblers".
Gamblers pay their way from getting there to sitting in the chair.
Some gamblers lose their $ & go into debt.
This is a serious problem among the elderly.
Don't want to rain on your parade.
Could you put something about Gamblers Anonymous at the end?
