★Kanji with hiragana
Have you ever bought a lottery ticket? I often buy them. I especially like the one in the picture, Lotto 6. You just pick any 6 numbers that you like. Its charm is its cheap price—1 chance costs only 200 yen.
We always buy the same numbers.This is because we would regret it if we changed our numbers, and then the next week our usual numbers won.
The draw is always on Thursday nights. Every week on Friday morning, I get a little excited when I take a look at the newspaper and check the results. It's really fun to think about what I'll do with the money if I win.
I've been buying the lottery for a few years now, but I'm sorry to say that most I've ever won in the past is the 1000-yen 5th prize.
The other day in a soccer lottery known as Toto BIG, there was a 563,000,000 yen win—the largest win in history—and was won by 7 people. I wonder how the winners' lives were changed by it. Don't you just envy them?
Do you know anyone who has won the lottery? How did they use the money they won?
And please tell me how I can win, too.
