It's a good advert for the lottery scam isn't it? However, the "win" doesn't look so great when you come across the following information:A construction worker who won $1 million in a lottery scratch-off game four years ago has defied enormous odds by hitting a $1 million jackpot again.
Every day? Not every visit, or every week - every day? Surely a misquote? Nope.“He usually buys the $10 and $20 scratch-off tickets,’’ said Mike’s Super Citgo boss Mike Abizeid. “Since I opened the store 11 years ago, he [has] spent $150 to $200 every day on scratch-offs.”
Not taking leap years into account and taking the lower $150 per day amount allegedly spent, the total sum is $602,250. So, Magistro, according to Abizeid (all these names look made up) spent over $600,000 over 11 years in order to ultimately win $1.4 million? I think I'd keep the $150 a day and put it into stock and shares, which would give a much better rate of return.Magistro, who plays the lottery every day
Where did he get the money from to spend on scratch cards every day prior to the 2012 win and then during the 3 years when his wife was ill if the money was used for medical bills?The last time, my wife was sick and needed the money for bills and everything, It gave me the opportunity to stay home with my wife for three years. This time, hopefully, I’ll invest it and make more money off of it.
This story has no internal consistency and appears to have been entirely made up or Magistro is an inveterate gambler with a serious addiction to scratch cards and is being made out to be something he's not. Whichever it is, it keeps up the hopes of the proles that one day, they too might win the lottery and cease having to be a wage slave, a forlorn hope but one which keeps a lot of people going.
