Does anyone ever get tempted to gamble or play the lottery?

    When lotto or Powerball jackpots I usually buy a few tickets, why not? We spend so much money on other junk things that are just useless or thrown out soon after that a couple of bucks on lotto is ok. When Powerball hit a $150 Million first prize that was fun. If you are ever with a group of friends and you run out of things to talk about then talk about what you would do with a win. That will liven up the conversation for a while. Gambling, it's ok as long as you got a handle on it and don't blow your house on it.:)

    I gamble once a week, currently on the A-league, NRL in winter. I haven't needed to put money in for a couple of years so it is quite enjoyable. Similarly, I haven't taken money out either. I am perfecting a new system at the moment and should this week's results be as expected, I might consider raising the ante.

    Only gamble what you are willing to lose.




    And you shouldn't be willing to lose anything!
