In my situation now it is difficult, sometimes when I’m thinking someday I will be the one to win lotto. If I win I will help people who need help. These are my numbers 31,47,8,3,10,13 – I’m hoping I will be lucky.

I’m hoping I win so I can help out in the Philippines where people need help because of the earthquake. I’m here in Europe playing Viking Lotto. Thanks. I’m hoping to be a winner.
