newworldinthemorning is an unknown quantity at this point
Default It's just $2 a day!

I play the NY Lottery games by subscription.

I play NY Lotto - 6 games 104 draws 2 per week $312.

I also play Mega Millions - 4 games 2 per week $416.

Total $728

Which is $14 a week - $2 a day.

It's worth a shot and I'm helping fund education in NY.

I can think of lots of better things to do with $728 ...

If you want to pay extra tax, there's a box on the federal return for that very purpose.

Yes, taxes are all very well and we should all pay our fare share. However, I do think state lotteries are a great way for states to raise extra revenue. We all benefit from that revenue, whether we play or not. It is a win-win situation; pardon the pun.

You could just give $728 to your local school.

Have you told anyone else about your gambling addiction?
