I think both with the recent rash of wins in both MM and PB at relative low jackpot levels.
I think that all or at least most people who win jackpot kinds of games win by chance, I think that is is most and not all, those who win big jackpots probably have come out way ahead of have they have spent on playing the lottery in their life-time.
For most people, no matter the lottery game or games played, they all are games of chance.
I know somebody who doesn't have a computer and who doesn't know anything about computers, but plays the pick 3 game everyday and wins boxed and or straight every once in a while, because of his straight wins he says that in the long run he has won very much more than what he has lost, since he buy many or several lottery tickets each time that he plays, some of the times when he wins straight he wins thousands of Dollars.
To him, the pick 3 game is probably more a game of intelligence than a game of chance.
People who come ahead of the pick 3 game like he does, are probably rare, but they are out there.
In my own experience, lottery games are both: Games of chance and games of intelligence, but as I said "To most people, lottery games are games of chance"
If a person can't win often enough by use of their intelligence in some way even if they are just playing numbers predicted by other(s), then the game or games are of chance.
Some people are intelligent enough to know whose numbers to play and when to play them, so if they win more than they lose, then to them the lottery games might be games of intelligence.
If people say that lottery games are games of chance, they are more right than they are wrong, because to most people lottery games are games of chance.
The proof is that "the house" always wins.
