Do they really need the wealth, or are they just greedy?

      I think it's greed! The more you have the more you want. If you read my quote at the bottom of my comments it says:  "Money is a terrible master, but a great servant". Hit With Stick

              People who are rich would still enjoy the financial security a lotter win would entail. Sure, they're already rich, but most aren't millions upon millions upon millions rich.

              Though, not like it really matters why they play, I couldn't care less if Bill Gates played and won.

                Hi, SergeM, i agree with you, most are greedy! Those millionaires want to be multiimillionaire, or even billionaires. Who would like to stop getting more money? I think the real richest like those billionaire, who does not have time to play such game again!

                Thanks for your kindness to visit my posting; and left me your warmness for my slow chewing! 

                Those who wants to win lottery is normal; and it is abnormal if anybody does not want to win!

                  No

                  First of all lottery is fun because it is hard to win. Its like the excitement of Superbowl or FIFA Worldcup..you just don't know if your team is gonna win.

                  Let me ask an opposite question and see how you will respond

                  Why do poor people play the lottery?

                  Should they be really wasting money, or are they just stupid?

                  That money's gone fo ever

                    LOL that's like asking why the Walton family keeps opening new Walmarts, or why Exxon and Shell and BP sell gas at 3,4 and 5 buck a gallon....Why? Well it's simple...because they can...Too much is never enough in America.....

                      I don't think all of them are greedy - some I think cannot help it. It's a psychological thing, like being born in the Depression. You can have warehouses full of food, but it's never enough. My opinion is based on what I see at my job - people who should be retired, keep on working through 65-70, though some of them are millionaires because they have been at the job 35-40 years (since high school/college), yet won't retire. They have hit all the financial caps of the company. Those that are forced to retire, go on to get another job, though they are more than well off. I truly think it's mental for most. I have to admit there are some that are just downright greedy though. That's my $.02. What?

                         the "RUSH" of winning or losing to the rich is like a drug.....watching a roulette ball land on your $100.00 bet and winning 3600.00 is a total RUSH !

                          People who really need the money shouldn't be wasting it on lottery tickets.  Rich people enjoy playing and winning games as much as anyone, do you think they shouldn't play because winners get money?

                            What is your definition of rich, in terms of dollar amount?  Washington says $250,000.00, but to some folks, that's just a WAM{walk-around money}.

                              Why do rich people play the lottery?

                              Because they've always played. How many jackpot winners really quit?

                              Because they're bored.

                              Because some of them are degenerate gamblers.

                              Because among the rich money is a way of 'keeping score' and they will brag about a big loss more than a big win.

                              Because like all other gamblers, they have a psychological need to lose.

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              Lep

                              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
