    Do you buy lottery tickets in any form? That’s a big gamble with a huge win/lose ratio. If you stick to a budget of a few dollars and have discipline, not too serious. However still a real small potential to win. If you get a thrill anyway, go for it – again as long as you have control over your gambling ‘instincts’.
