I rarely pay the idiot tax but last time it got really high I bought tickets and I won a little over $200 on all my tickets and with the power play option. I spent $12 so I am ahead. I will drop a few dollars on it again.
I'm going to start getting in the habit of buying them again. I always forget but I can't win unless I play. I never buy over one or two entries. I figure if my luck was to hit, it would just be my time, no matter how many entries I buy. After all the shite ive been through my luck is bound to change and when it does I'm filling up a room in money and swimming in it!
