Texas Lottery Chronicles- "Set for Life"

Today's $5 ticket is titled "Set for Life." The top prize is $2,500 a week for 20 years. At only 5,000,000-1 odds, I'm quite sure it will be mine!

Odds of cashing are 4-1, with the object of the game to match one of your 20 numbers with the "winning" number at the top of the ticket.

I have decided to take a different approach this time by scratching off only the numbers to see if any match. If a number matches, I'll them reveal the prize amount.

A little suspense, if you will.

So, let's take a gander at the winners and see if we match any on the top line.

Looks like we whiffed 'em all. On to line two.

No bueno once again.Hopefully, the third line will treat us better.

Alright! Looks like three's a charm as we match #19. We'll finish up with line four and then come back to see how big our prize is.

No luck on our last line, so let's go back and see how much we have coming our way :)

Five dollars. Disappointing.

At least we broke even on this one.
