we play every drawing. its a combination of our birthdates and some other important numbers to us. I think I would implode if I ever found out that those numbers won, so I am obligated to play for insurance against that event.
we typically hit 3 numbers a few times a year, so it really only costs us like $30-$40. Have hit 4 twice, so I figure thusfar we're not too far behind.
yes, I know its an idiot tax.
