I win lottery tickets ALL the time. Obviously the statistic refers to winning the big prizes. If all you're talking about is winning 2 dollars on a 1 dollar scratch ticket, your chances are pretty damn high.

That, public healthcare, gay rights, lower crime, less religion. Seems nice. If it wasn't so cold....

the odds of winning on the powerball lottery in the US are approx 1 in 32. So I think this person might be a little bit mistaken.

Shhhhhhhh! The more the idiots play the lottery, the less I have to pay in taxes.

If a bookie was caught skimming 55% of his handle, he be tarred and feathered and run out of town, and yet no one seems to have a problem with this if the bookie is the government. Even worse, if you win, they take back 40% of the prize in taxes leaving a net payout of 27% of the handle. Why would I play that game when there are casinos down the road with slots that pay out 97%? (I don't play those, either.)

Lottery = stupidity tax.
