The other day while in line to buy a Coke Zero, also known as my sustenance, I was behind a woman who decided to play the lotto. Apparently, she was going to play the four number daily lotto, so she said:
Lady: Yes I would like to play 4 twos
Lady: Oh, can I get that straight?
Could it be anything other THAN straight? It is 4 twos! For those of you who do not waste your money weekly or daily on the lotto, when playing daily 4 numbers in these parts there are two ways to do it:
1. Straight - so if you play 1234 and 1234 is drawn, you win.
2. Boxed - if you play 1234 and any combination of those four numbers is drawn you win.
The payout for straight is larger than boxed.
Good thing that lady was paying attention. Those twos could have come out in any number of combinations.
She did not buy alcohol in case you are wondering.
Perhaps she should have.
