Why doesn't the lottery reward players?

I've been thinking about this issue for a while, we as players should be rewarded in someway for even playing there ridiculous odds vs payouts. Retailers get 5% commision on all sales, we should also get 5% back . The more you spend the more you get back. 10% combining retailers and players. 5% is not excessive to reward players. Have you seen the lottery, its making a killer on profits, which does go back to the state. Just look at pick 3/ pick 4. Only pays out 50%. And scratch off games are about the same as well. The reward card is a bearer instrument, which if lost or stolen, no one is responsible, just like a lottery ticket. Also just like a lottery ticket, after one year it will expire. Same thing for the rewards card. It should be printed in the front (Issued on 01/01/14, Expires: 01/01/15. Everytime you buy a scratch off or numbers game you give it to the retailer and scans it, to your total account of tickets purchased. If you spend $1,000 in a given year you should get back $50. Which can be cashed out at anytime and used for anything, in the given 1 year span. You should get a new card free of charge, with no paper work to fill out . This would create more daily players and the lottery total revenue will increase. Its a win/win. What's your thoughts, would this actually work?

    The Missouri Lottery has a point system for tickets played and a store on its website where you use your points.

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


    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.
