hi
feel free to laugh at my naivety and ignorance-
i dont buy lottery tickets much- once inna while i do, maybe 5 a year-
but i got a 649 yesterday- and about an hour ago i looked at the winning numbers- the first four shown were the same on my ticket
now i dont know anything really about how it works, but looking on the webpage it said 4 numbers = 9% of the pot
so a quick mental calculation, and im worth thousands!
threw on my coat and boots and went over to the store- you can imagine the goofy thoughts in my head- im piss poor - and a guitar player
at the store im all shaking and stuff- the guy that works there knows me, and asked me whats wrong- i give him the ticket, and find out that- yes 4 numbers = 9%- thats like 630,000- but i gotta share it with the other 8,775 ppl who got 4 numbers lol- that netted my 75$
geez- free money is nice but still im deflated.

The best thing one can say about Lotteries in Canada is that they do a LOT of good charity work with the money they make off people....
