Things that I didn`t do as a JW ,but now have no problem doing and have no guilt trips about it.
1. Playing the pokies now and again.
2.Buying scratchies from the newsagents where you can win money.
3.Buying Lottery tickets and only last night won more than $800 for a $57 outlay ,not that it happens often but when it does WHOOPEE.
4.When I go to one of my local clubs I often play Keno and have had many a win and many a loss for a small outlay.
The losses are over a long period of time wheras the wins are immediate .The biggest win I ever had was $13600 in one go whereas the losses for a typical week could be $ 50-100 .
And there are usually smaller amounts won over those periods .
5.At one club we have a "Punters Club" where you pick a winner for every race at one course on a saturday ,I usually choose 3 tickets and put my wife in for 3 tickets which are $2 each ,so that costs me $12 for a Saturday .
There are usually 60-70 participants between $120-$140 winner takes all .3 points for a win 2 points for second and 1 point for third ,whoever has the most points takes the money.
Its an interest and can give you beer money for the rest of the week.
