Did you know that there is a time when playing the lottery is actually considered to be the wisest move financially when you need cash? And, even if you’re not strapped for cash, it can be a fun way to spend your time – for entertainment purposes.
Smart Financial Moves
If you have a long term goal to raise $6,000 to purchase a used car that recently caught your eye, I would advise that you skimp on a few of the non-essentials at home, go out to eat less, and maybe even take on an additional part-time job to save up your cash a little bit faster. When you set your mind to something, you’d be surprised how quickly you could save up a large amount of money.
If, however, you needed to come up with $500 by the next day and you had no other options (you have nothing left that you can sell, there is no way you can possibly raise the money through additional hours at work, and you can’t borrow the money from anyone), then the absolute best place to try to raise the money would be through gambling at a place like Euromillions. They are an online lottery site that has people winning money each and every day. Of course, the odds are never in your favor with any lottery, but there is always a chance that you could win! You just never know!
Do you realize how much it costs to go bowling for an evening? Take a date and bowl three games and you could be paying as much as $25 when you leave! If you head to the casino and play penny slots, you could be entertained for hours for less than $20! As long as you don’t become dependant on winning, it really can be a great source of entertainment.
I once went to Vegas and I told myself I was only going to spend $1 in the casino (I have to admit, I’m not much of a gambler). Well, before I knew it, I was up $14! I immediately cashed out, got myself a sandwich and some ice cream and had a great night!
Have you ever had some fun lottery experiences?
My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
