So, I just thought of the best discussion of the year not revolving around whether winning strategies exists.

 

What is the most attractive quality of a lottery, for you personally? Do you like huge jackpots? A high ROI (return on investment)? Do you want to see results

asap (scratch tickets)? Or do you like to dream a while before you lose? Or maybe you just like cheap games? Or Cash for life?

 

What are the most important points in a lottery for you to decide whether you're playing it or not?

    The most important point is for a few dollars you could win and become a millionaire!!!

      Pretty much this. It's a huge gamble and the ROI usually don't pan out...but for the lucky few who do...well their set for the rest of their life.

            " its the Money-Honey"- anyone tell you different,  they are being less than truthful.
            That's the most attractive.

                    Seems like most people answered the same way; I feel the same. But why do people buy some scratch off tickets? or pick 2/3/4/5 games?

                     

                    Many of those are neither "a dollar" nor "a dream" (not a million dollar dream, anyway) so why do people play them?
