I got all excited when I saw that there was a Tetris scratchoff lottery ticket available from NJ Lottery - you get two access codes for internet play.
The first thought that ran through my head "hey, I used to be really good at Tetris, all I need is something like the old Nintendo controller, and it'd be like getting back on a bicycle after 10 years of not riding one... man, I could rake in the cash!
Until they burst my bubble when I got to the end of theirFAQ
Does my skill level for how well I play TETRIS® determine if my ticket is a winner?
No, each access code is predetermined to be a winner or a non-winner, and your skill level does not affect the outcome. The only aspect your skill level affects is how quickly or how long it will take to find out if you hold a winning or non-winning ticket.
Ah well, thought all those hours that we've all spent playing video games could have cashed in some bucks for us!
