It’s funny, we were just talking about how the lottery is really just a competitor sport like any other – then along comes Mark. He agrees with us by the way.
There’s the excitement of the build-up as the jackpot starts to get big. Then there’s the ‘pre-match’ talk as thing count down to the big event itself. Then those balls drop into place one by one – each one feels just like a goal being scored. Which goes together with either the excitement of your number being drawn, or the disappointment as ‘the other team’ get one.
And finally there’s the after-match party, which if you won the cup (er, jackpot) can be a particularly big one. Or it’s a quick commiseration pint, brief analysis of why those team picks were wrong, and back to normality.
You see, bet you never thought the two types of game were quite so similar before?
Personally I like the slightly more sane draws where the odds aren’t quite so tough, but Mark loves the big draws (check out his Big Fat Lottos review). Those big draw games are tough, but of course, someone does win them pretty much every week so I guess it might as well be me 🙂
More fun and games soon people.
