Last week and again this week, I'm giving you a chance to win 25 Fat Cat Lottery Tickets from the New York State Lottery. It's their new instant game with the top prize of $25,000. According to the New York State Lottery website, there are a total of 13 grand prize tickets out there waiting to be won.

I needed a picture for this blog, so I went out and bought a couple of the Fat Cat Lottery tickets. I gave one to my wife and kept one for myself. Of course, my wife is a lot luckier than I am and she won $4 on her ticket. After work today, I'll take the winning ticket back to the store and get a couple more.

Every time I buy a lottery ticket I start fantasizing what I would do if I won the top prize. And with the Fat Cat scratch-off tickets, it was no different. If I won, I would take my wife on an all-inclusive vacation to an island somewhere. I would use the money that was left over to redo my bar in my basement. I would buy some new bar stools, a couple of leather recliners to go with the leather reclining love-seat, and maybe even bigger TVs mounted on the wall, and give some to my family members.

You can win the 25 tickets just by listening to Free Zone in the Morning. Right around 8:40 a.m. each weekday, you'll hear a clip of Ted Nugent 's Cat Scratch Fever, when you do, be the 9th caller at 607-723-9996 and you could be scratching your way to $25,000. You must be 18 and over to win the tickets. Good luck! Like they say, you never know.
