[quote:Anonymous Coward 22478672:MV8yMDY2MTA1XzM0NzYyOTk3XzFBQTgzMUI5] [quote:Anonymous Coward 3799039:MV8yMDY2MTA1XzM0NzYyOTMzX0U3MkExRDJB] The lottery pays out 35% of all of the money that they take in. (Figures from my state. Illinois. Correct me if the national lotteries pay out more.) That means for every $1 that you put into the lottery, you have a expected payout based on probability of 35 cents. I won't play slot machines because they take 6 cents. This makes the lottery the worst investment, (If you can call it that.) that you can make. I will only buy one ticket when the lottery rolls over many times and goes over $100 million. The payout becomes better at that time. I went into a liquor store a few weeks ago and saw a woman buying $20 in scratch off tickets. Then she bought a half pint of jack. She should have bought no lottery tickets and bought a quart of jack. The lottery is a tax on the poor or stupid. [/quote] a tax you have to pay. You don't have to play the lottery. If a person spends all thier money on scratch offs and booze, it is thier right to do so. Being a free country and all. [/quote]
One of the winning powerball tickets sold was in Fountain Hills AZ.
Now if you look up Fountain Hills its a small community of some very nice looking retirement homes, exclusive golf courses and estates homes, next to Scottsdale AZ, where there are many wealthy folks who live there.
Chances are, the lucky winner is an old retiree already rich.
