I don't play the Colorado lottery because I think it's a rip off. Still, plenty of others do. I've never won a dime from any manifestation be it a scratch ticket or the high jackpot games like Powerball. Not one dime have I ever won. That's why I long ago stopped playing. It's just throwing money down a rat hole, in my opinion.
Nonetheless I see people buying tickets at the store regularly. I hope some of them are winning. So, to test my hypothesis that I never win, I purchased a scratch off ticket last Friday. I scratched it off. and I won nothing.
