I don't think I can ever go back to playing scratch'n'wins again after reading about the Startup Lotto. The Startup Lotto is a new Danish website that lets members potentially win one percent of a budding start up company.

The Startup Lotto doesn't run off the typical lottery pay-to-play system. Instead, Startup Lotto sends out one email a month inviting its members to try out new websites. If you sign-up to those websites you are automatically entered in a drawing to win one percent of that companies stock. One percent may seem like a paltry sum, but when you think about how big certain startups have gotten (like YouTube and Facebook), you could potentially be looking at big money.
