Quoting VannaMae307:

Oh lawd....

can of worms


Quoting almondpigeon:

Ack!  I'm in NC & haven't heard this.  How will they know if someone is on PA? If I show up in my jammies, crocs & 5 kids in tow, will they assume I'm on PA?

Maybe they need welfare because they gamble? 


Quoting Anonymous:

If they win the lottery maybe they won't need welfare anymore?

It doesn't matter how many sets of numbers you play.. Only ONE line winds the jackpot in powerball. Whether you spent $1 or $20, powerball jackpot remains the same.

Quoting VannaMae307:

The $1 tickets won't do much. It's the $20 powerball tickets that do the megabucks winnings.



Quoting JDmommyJD:

Hey.. That $1 ticket might get them off pa forever.

I can't see how they would be able to do that unless they are blocking the ability to pay for lottery purchases with a card issued by welfare.

Actually this is not true. Powerball is powerball. The $2 ticket if you match all 6 numbers you still get the jacket. Jackpot, not jacket. And I'm not even mobile FFS.

I was referring to scratch-offs but now I've had 2 people correct me about the powerball. I don't touch lottery, I've been gamble-free for 2 years and have to stay away from it, so I was wrong.
