Playing the lottery is a great way to make some money. Most people focus on playing the tickets with big bucks like the Mega Million while the scratch offs are left behind. Try purchasing one or two scratch offs every time you make money. Those $1,$2 and $5 scratch off tickets really adds up. Then save them until you reach a nice amount like $50.00 til a $100 and cash it in. If you don't play how can you win?
