I won the lottery!


I've never played, but I just won 6 bucks. Had I played - or actually bought the tickets myself - I would have spent $20 to win $6. Not that exciting considering.

Here's what happened. I hadn't called into a radio station since forever to request a song. So I was listening to 104.5 The Fox (a classic rock station - yes, I'm that old) and decided to request the Kinks' Give the People What They Want. (Image from Dave Emlin's Unnofficial Kinks Web Site)

So after I made my request the guy tells me I'm a winner. I say thanks, I know. He says, no you actually won something. I said, really, what? He said some lottery tickets. I said, great. And so that's how I came to win the lottery. They gave me 20 bucks worth of tickets, we scratched them all off and won 6 dollars.

I never did hear my song, though.

The Kinks! Man you are old.

That was one of my favorite albums once upon a time.

There are smarter ways of playing the lottery. I would like to point out a very cool program that I am a member of. Basically, you can get paid to play the lottery which is VERY cool. If you check out LottoMagik.com and click on “Income” it explains everything. To be a captain sounds expensive ($50 a month) but with just two team captain referrals you are already getting paid to play the lottery every month. Plus, since you are on a team, you increase your odds of winning. I’m not saying you have to join, or that you even have to give it the time of day. I’m just letting you know that there are options out there for playing the lottery smartly.
