Woman Spent All Her Money on Powerball Tickets, Then Sets Up a GoFundMe To Get it Back





Hitting the lotto jackpot worth millions, is something we try our luck with from time to time. You may have tried and bought a ticket just for the heck of experiencing it, and then kinda hoping that you were lucky enough to win right?

However, some people take their lotto very very seriously. How serious? Well a woman named Cinnamon Nicole from Cordova, Tennessee allegedly spent all her family’s money to buy Powerball Lotto tickets. The jackpot of almost $1.6 billion was indeed tempting. And eventually, one of the three winners came from Tennessee, but unfortunately it was not Nicole.

So what to do when you just blew all your cash on losing tickets? You can try to ask the internet for some charity. So our lotto-spending heroine setup her Gofundme page asking people for donations to help her and her family get back from their loss.

And this is what she actually wrote on her Gofundme page description,

Please help me and my family as we have exausted all of our funds. We spent all of our money on lottery tickets (expecting to win the 1.5 billion) and are now in dire need of cash. With your small donation of at least $1.00, a like and one share, I’m certain that we will be able to pick ourselves up from the trenches of this lost and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again! PLEASE, won’t you help a family in need. DONATE NOW.

Okaaaay a couple of you might be doing eye rolls at her ridiculous expectation that she will win the jackpot. But well she’s been pretty innovative and forward thinking on how to get back some money right? I don’t know which is more bothersome though, the fact that she is ready to spend all her fortune again trying to hit the jackpot; or the fact that a few people actually donated some money for her “lost cause”.

Well what do you think of this story?
