I have only bought lottery tickets twice. Once when the jackpot was $600M and once when the jackpot was $300M. Even then I only bought one ticket and
one play for one dollar. I did win $7 on one, so I'm technically ahead. The fact is, I analyzed the odds and only bought a ticket when the fractional
odds of winning was worth more than one dollar. Even then it is a case of malinvestment when you consider all the taxes they take out.
