Chris Singleton Preferred Blowing $10k on Lottery Instead of ‘in the Club’

by April 03, 2012

Washington Wizards rookie Chris Singleton made news last week when he purchased $10,000 worth of lottery tickets, but he didn’t win the Mega Millions jackpot. Singleton says that he has no regrets. From the WaPo: “The Wizards rookie, who will earn $1.485 million this season, wrote last week on his Twitter account that he was going to take a shot at the jackpot: ‘I’m about to drop 10000 on the lottery and cross my fingers #halfwaytoabillionaireifiwin’ He later explained to his Twitter followers that he was making an ‘investment’ and added, ‘If I get richer, I will change the world for the better.’ When asked about the purchase on Monday, Singleton said he had to buy tickets at different locations because they weren’t allowed to print his requested demand at once. He added that he felt he made a wise investment, even though he didn’t win. ‘Either that or blow it in the club,’ Singleton said.”
