I got caught up in all the Lottery Fever and put $10 on MegaMillions and $10 on PowerBall.  I'll be eager to check my tickets when the winning numbers are called.  The jackpots are huge so good luck to all of us!

It can be fun to put a little money on games of chance.  My parents used to enjoy playing slots in Atlantic City.  I know many of you are regulars at your local Bingo Night.  Some of you like to go off to the races at Monmouth Park. Maybe playing cards with friends is more your speed.  And then there are those of you who enjoy gift auctions and tricky trays.  And some support of you support schools, churches, and civic organizations by buying tickets for raffle drawings.

Back to the lottery fever that's in the news right now.  If you're tempted to buy more tickets than you can actually afford, there's a great website you can check out.  Watch some of the videos or call the free 24/7 Confidential Helpline run by the the Council on Compulsive Gambling in New Jersey.

The number to call is 1-800-GAMBLER.
