I'd buy off the state legislature to pass a bill requiring all convenience stores to have a non-lottery ticket line so those of us who don't buy lottery tickets could get in and out in a reasonable amount of time.

I would form a PAC who's only mission would be to get the state governments out of the numbers racket. Where's the bunko squad when you need it.

They are predicting anywhere between $800 million and $1 billion now if sales of tickets continue as they are.  That's an unfathomable amount of money for a lottery.  They said if one person won the money, took the cash payout, and invested it all in US Treasury bonds they would still make $9 million/year in interest alone.

Walmart has installed Kiosk for that so maybe they will catch on at the gas station. If you don't smoke or buy lottery tickets or drink coffee, I don't know why you go inside but that is you business. Myself I missed getting a ticket because I didn't inside a gas station since Monday and have been going through two tanks a day.

Besides Champ your recliner isn't going anywhere...........

"They" are assuming that, if someone truly bought $6,000,000 in bonds; the government could be trusted to pay the interest.

I don't trust it would happen.

I told a buddy that I wouldn't do the annuity because I am not confident that the money will be there for 30 years.
