So I drop $75 on NY Numbers, hit on 502 box $80+$25 02 b/p = $105, profit of $30. For all the running around I did, it's not worth it. But, ok, I still won, then what? Do I stop, or keep playing? What's the end game? To hit the big one of $500, or even $250? By the time I hit a straight, I would have wasted much more than the payout... but, yes, I will have hit the big one! So, I have decided to save my lottery money and spend it all instead on AC or Vegas. Atleast I could bet 0.01-0.10 instead of 0.50, and get free drinks, comps, buffet, etc.
