CA Lottery

I guess you can say it’s gambling, but would it be considered illegal? I don’t know if this is a good thing, but what catches my attention is how much they seem similar to playing on a dollar slot machine in Las Vegas. If you notice the price per ticket range from:
That is insane!

So if they are similar, in the near future we are going to see ticket price ranges from:

I overheard my dad earlier today talking to my mom about a lottery ticket he got from the Liquor Store owner who saves the tickets in a box that are supposedly loser tickets, and he lets my dad get them for free, and it ended up being a $10 scratcher. My dad ended up doing the second-chance drawing on the website provided above, and he ended up winning $10. I saw it and it was those large tickets with a really big money prize, and that is what inspired me to write this thread.

I guess if the odds could be adjusted a little more fairly, could scratcher tickets become like the next slot machine, and would this be legal in all states?

I don't know if this should be posted somewhere else....

Spend $1, and you may win $2 or more. Or you may win $0. So um yeah, that's a gamble.

As far as being illegal: Gambling laws are State Laws, not Federal Laws.

I guess no one really meant where I was going with this...

California Lottery Scratchers = Gambling = Revenue

I was just pointing out if this was legal in all states if this could be a solution for the economy.

Ohhh well I guess this could go in the archives.
