yeah now that's a terrible investment no matter how you slice it. and that guy is a moron. his chances of winning againt aren't statistically significantly any lower after he already won.

but a) the lotto is a tax on the people who need to not waste money and b) most winners end up screwing their life over anyway because they dont know how to deal with big money.

oh well! yayyy jose!

last lotto drawing here was 330M. Odds of winning 1:174M
You could almost make an investment argument out of it.

I used to work in my parents' liquor store. I can't tell you how many people would spend their entire paychecks on Scratchers and Keno. :(

I love lotto and everyone who plays it.

I win $4000 a year, and I've never bought a ticket. Lottery-funded scholarships rule!
