Hey, here's an idea for those of you who like to gamble... it's a way to gamble, with potentially HUGE payoffs, THAT DOESN'T COST A SINGLE PENNY.

Here's what you do. Take a $10 bill, go to your local bank, and get a roll of quarters. Then go to your local library, and get a current book on numismatics. Open the roll of quarters - and then check to see if any of your quarters are actually VALUABLE RARE COINS!

If you strike out - NO PROBLEM! Just go back to the bank, and get a DIFFERENT ROLL! In fact, if you then get $10 of PENNIES instead, you DRAMATICALLY INCREASE your odds of finding a VALUABLE RARE COIN!

Hey, it sure beats spending your paycheck on those scratch- offs, right?! Plus, you might find that you've gained a NEW FULFILLING HOBBY!

       Or you could simply sort through the trash bin next to the lotto machine for any tickets that the purchaser failed to observe the winning nature of. I do believe that this form of gambling is also free, and equally thrilling.
