Default Some math for lottery, and making moolah in general.

Ten dollars a day to play a lottery game. How much would you spend to make 100 dollars? Here is where it gets interesting, and I refer to one of my oldest money making concepts:

Circulation beats storage every day of the week.

This just came from one of my banks today:

It pays to invest.
If you took just $100 a month and started investing it, hereís what your investment would look like over time.**
In 12 months

**Assuming the S&P 500ís historical rate of return of 7%.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Now interesting enough this bank, SoFi, shows they pay .046 if you lock the money down for a year. So, a 1200 dollar investment all at once will give you

55.20 in interest.

BANKS, YECCH, YIKES and too big to fail, eh?

Anyhow, I know I am doing much better with my lottery than I can with stuffing any money for a long period into a bank.

So, to win 100, I will spend 400 (win 500)...but most of the time, if played with small amounts, of ten per day, I will lose most of the time...the secret is to roll over any money not played until you can place a larger play.

Ten bux a day, five days= 50, or what I may do is play a wheel for 9 dollars and 9 numbers for 5 days (45) in the hope of winning the 500. But if the charts say otherwise, something feels like it is right, then maybe toss all that 300 for the month into 30 wheels, that cover all the numbers equally.

I like the MATH part of lottery, but know there is LUCK, whatever that is, and I mix in some magic (active imagination via divination{scrying, dice, cards} and automatic writing, along with dream interpretation)...

Wheels are keys to my winnings so far, and although Moby Dick has escaped me, I've still managed to harpoon enough to keep my lottery horse fed, on their dimes for a good while to go.

Lottery. Math, luck and magic. OR if your prefer, stick it safely into your bank's CD offer and let THEM make the money off or you.
