did we win, big sister?


Gaming Board for Sweden (Lotteriinspektionen) carries the overall responsibility to ensure that lotteries, casinos and other forms of gambling in Sweden are secure, reliable and conducted in a law-abiding fashion.

Here's a traditional, small-scale lottery at a Christmas Bazaar in Salem. All smiles, friendly faces and no need whatsoever for any governmental supervision! See more?

This is more funny than every state lottery...

Cute expectation!

It's hard to believe the government isn't involved, yet.

Nice portrait. Those little girls look as sweet as can be!

Andreea said...

I like her expression of wishful anticipation. Very sweet.

Do you play the lotteries? I bet the State remains the true winner in the long run.

Vogon Poet: Certainly is. Just look at those faces.

cieldequimper: Irresistible, even.

B Squared: There are still pockets of unregulated territory! ;)

Halcyon: And the best thing is that they totally ignored the photographer!

Andreea: So much has changed (just think of modern toys compared to old ones) but this could have been ages ago. Some pleasures remain timeless.

Thanks all for stopping by.

Very, very cute!

I hope they won something! I never win a thing. Of course, I don't enter any lotteries which may have something to do with it!

haha, they look cute! reminds me of me and my sis. ^0^

We don't have a lottery in Mississippi. But we do have plenty of Indian casinos and riverboat gambling - which I think is worse.

Tinsie said...

That's a fab shot. Top marks!

Per Stromsjo said...

These kids were immensely successful. In a nutshell, as far as I could tell they kept on winning throughout the bazaar!

JM: Who could disagree? :)

Jacob: That factor may be of a certain relevance!

arabesque: A little sis or a big sis?

Halcyon: Maybe you could use the services of our national Gaming Board...

Tinsie: I know you like people shots and so do I...

Appreciate your stopping by, folks.
