BUY LOTTO TICKETS (BUT DON’T GET HOOKED)
Here's the PSA from the Provincial Lottery authority, whose motto is "Entertainment for you, benefits for everyone." I found it on the back of the advertisement for December bingo games in nearby Ramallo (with my translation). Just thought someone out there would smile at the irony.
¿FRACASAS CUANDO QUERES CONTROLAR EL IMPULSO DE JUGAR?
Do you fail when you try to control your impulse to gamble?
¿ENGANAS A TU FAMILIA PARA VOLVER A JUGAR?
Do you mislead your family in order to return to gambling?
¿TENES DEUDAS POR EL JUEGO?

¿SENTIS QUE PERDES EL CONTROL CUANDO JUGAS?
Do you feel that you lose control when you gamble?
SI PERDES, ¿BUSCAS REVANCHA?

Suddenly I feel a distinct urge to buy a lottery ticket...after all, it's New Year's Eve...surely my lucky day! Actually, I prefer casinos...time for a trip to the luxury resorts of Punta del Este or Vina del Mar!
