Play Responsibly

A few tips on playing the lottery responsibly:

  • Always play for fun. Consider your lottery-playing budget to be an entertainment expense.
  • Keep track of how much money you spend playing.
  • Set a limit on how much you will play, and stick to it – only play with money that you can afford to lose. Never borrow money to play.
  • Never play with a need to win.
  • Know the odds.
