This isn't poker related, but it is gambling related and pretty funny.
I caught this story about a couple who spent $20.00 every single day on the lottery, totaling $124,000 over their lifetime. Then on the same day, they won the lotto TWICE. The first hit was for $126,000, and the second was for $17M. The odds of that happening are apparently 1:24,000,000,000,000. (!)
And in true Jason form, when asked if spending $20.00 per day was reasonable, the lottery manager replied "I suppose this is playing responsibly," Walton said. "It paid off, didn't it?"
