Seriously OLGC…wake up

Posted: June 3, 2014 in Rant

I haven’t bought a lottery ticket in about two years, but when I do I buy about 20 at once. Statistically, that gives you better odds. Still shitty, but better. It makes more sense to do that than to play once a week for 20 weeks.

Recently, a Brampton couple won $50 million, which is disgusting. I mean, sure – good for them. But they couldn’t spend, donate and give away all that money if they tried.

I’ve been waiting. And waiting. And waiting. For the OLGC to wake up and offer a real lottery. None of this $10 million bullshit. $20 million bullshit. $50 million? That’s just laughable.

No, I’m talking about a multiple draw for one ticket. If you have a $50 million pot, why not have 10 draws of $5 million each. So each ticket holder gets 10 cracks at become rich enough to retire and live well forever. I’ll be first in line for that ticket. But giant winnings will never lure me to the lottery counter. And I struggle to understand why the sheep line up and get excited about giant jackpots. I mean – is your life any different for winning $50 million as opposed to winning $5 million? Truly?

Let’s create more millionaires, rather than just a handful of extreme extreme millionaires.
