February 7th is my birthday (yay!). This year, the Super Bowl was played on the same day. So it being the Super Bowl, there were numerous Super Bowl Pools. Here you see me with my winnings for having the 2nd quarter square numbers. This was for a $2.50 per square pool. Not a bad deal. I actually put in $40…but at least I came out ahead!
To give you an idea on how lucky I am with Super Bowl Pools, I was in another long running pool this year. Only this one is $50 per square. Without going into much detail, I managed to pull $100 out of that pool — breaking even. That might not sound like “luck” but at least I’m not losing money! So next year, think of me when you need to fill up squares.
