I've been playing the lottery probably since it was invented. Not that I'm old - just well worn in ;-).
I mostly play in other peoples lottery syndicates these days, partly because it's far easier than trying to run your own (now there's a job with lots of hassle and no thanks whatsoever!) - and of course because it's the sensible way to get a better chance of winning the lottery without spending crazy sums of money on tickets.
I've been writing about the lottery since 2002, making that pretty much over 10 years now if my maths is still working.
So if you like what I write about please leave a comment - it makes me feel like somebody out there cares :-)
