National Financial Literacy Month has come to a close, but focusing on your finances doesn’t have to be limited to just one month of the year. You may have taken some time throughout April to better understand your spending and saving, but you can develop your financial literacy skills year-round! And when it comes to the lottery, you can make the most out of your entertainment dollars by tracking your play.
It’s fun to play responsibly, and win or lose, playing the lottery should be a positive experience for everyone. To keep play positive, set limits and stick to them!
Not sure what limits to set? Keeping track of how often you play the lottery and how much you spend is a good place to start. Tracking your play on a daily, weekly or monthly basis can give you an idea of what limits you might need to set when it comes to playing.
We’ve got the tools to help you keep play positive. Hoosier Lottery’s Track Your Play Calculator can help you set limits, stick to them and have fun along the way. The calculator applies to multiple Hoosier Lottery games, and it’s easy to use, too. Just answer a few questions about your spending habits and play routine, then let the calculator do the rest.
Here’s how to use it: start by selecting the games you play. Then, enter in the dollar amount that you spend and select “per day,” “per week,” or “per month” from the drop-down menu. Click “calculate” and watch the calculator lay out your annual spending trajectory.
