And he's not alone. I would like to say that I am not coming into work. I do love my job but I probably wouldn't work as hard as I do. I would buy myself my Hawaii home and start my new life.
I am missing just a few pieces from each prize but aren't we all!
So far quite a few winners have been announced via their app which is a major improvement. When I first started playing a few weeks ago, the biggest prize that was won was a 1 in 50 $20,000 college tuition prize and that person was from San Jose, CA. Someone from Concord, CA won $5,000 cash, Congrats! The biggest prize won so far is a $40,000 home makeover. I want to win!
Besides the app providing a list of winners, you can now scan the bar codes on the pieces to see if you have won smaller prizes such as additional tickets. This year, they also have a progressive jackpot. When bar codes are scanned, losing scans increases a jackpot that began at $1,000. One person has won $7,000 with the jackpot. The jackpot caps at $250,000.
Wish me luck! And if you aren't playing, please collect the game pieces and I will take them from you. And of course, reward you with sharing the winnings. *Sharing terms are mine. :)
In other news, Monopoly is getting rid of game pieces like the thimble, wheelbarrow and boot are getting, well, the boot.(Monolopy Booted the Thimble, Purists are Sew Mad - Wall Street Journal). Apparently, four million people voted online for the change. New pieces will be a T-Rex, a rubber ducky and a penguin. I cannot wit until Nate grows up to play Monopoly with me. He loves dinosaurs and I love penguins. I am not mad at this change.I think I'll schedule a game night.
I'm also game at entering contests online. As mentioned in last year's post, I have won a lot. Lately I have been entering many contests that are travel focused. I would love to see the world, drink and taste absolutely everything and create more content for this blog.
