Crazy Idea for Lottery Players
There was a recent story in The News concerning a woman that nearly, by a matter of hours, lost out on winning a 26 million dollar lottery ticket.
This idea will be gawdsend for people that usually buy a lot of lottery tickets, & it will also be a gawdsend for people that would like to buy a few lottery tickets every month, but never keep up with them when they do, or forget to buy any, & kick themselves whenever a big lottery sum rolls over.
It is very simple.
Players go to a State Lottery Ticket Website & Sign Up for A fixed number of Tickets that will automatically be bought for them every month, say 5 tickets every month.
If any of your tickets win any amount; You’re sent a email notifying you of The win, & The winning amount is automatically sent to your Debit or Credit Card Account That you’ve used to buy The tickets.
Every month; You’d be sent an email & you’d have a fixed amount of time to respond to it, that you would set yourself.
So if you set it for 3 days; You’d have 3 days to enter your desired numbers.
If you failed to respond with your desired numbers; Then it would either use a set of fixed numbers that you’d always play for each of The tickets, Use randomly picked numbers, or pick numbers from a set that you’ve saved as your ‘lucky’ numbers, or from a set of numbers that you’ve saved for each month, depending upon your horoscope research or whatever.
You might even be able to create your own ‘formula’ for picking numbers depending upon The date; recent weather, stock indexes, past winning or losing numbers or any other variables that are available somewhere on The internet.
Each month; You’d get an email with your numbers & you could check them against The newspaper, website or TV announcement. But this wouldn’t be necessary; You’d be notified if you won, & you could even choose to be notified if you lost !
This would provide The state with A Steady Income, & If you were prone to overbuy tickets; This would be an easy way to limit The number of tickets that you’d usually buy, & you could rest assured that you’d never ’miss’ a winning ticket.
Of course; You’d be able to buy lottery tickets in a conventional manner, & you could even enter your code number when buying The ‘extra’ tickets, so that if they won; You’d be notified of their wins or loses as well.
But this wouldn’t be necessary either; you could still buy as many tickets as you’d like anonymously, & check them yourself.
If you won a really big lottery sum, & required complicated processing; Then normal protocols would be instituted.
