In 2011, in the perceived pursuit of happiness, hapless New Zealanders spent $926 million on Lotto, the national lottery.
That figure equates to each and every man woman and child in this county spending two hundred and forty dollars.
Many don't have that sort of disposable income and go into debt to fund this weekly gambling habit or use their sickness or other welfare benefit.
And the greed driven executives at the New Zealand Lotteries Commission are exhorting them to spend more.
