I have a lottery budget that I adhere to each month. Usually no more than $25-$50 tops. With this budget I usually stay on top. Especially considering that I finally won the Big-4 TWICE for $5,200 this year picking my own numbers. I only played one ticket each time as well, as oposed to 10-20 tickets.
Money lost is irrelevant, as you would never be able to save what a jackpot windfall can give you. Even if you saved all your income, most could never save even a few hundred thousand and be young enough to enjoy it. A jackpot gives you all that money NOW, that is the key.
