>> So you will still on average lose a lot of money, but if you don't lose you will get more than you might otherwise.
You are incorrect. As an example, if the odds of winning the prize, without splitting it, are 1 in 100million, and the pay-out exceeds 100million dollars...then 'on average' you do not lose money, but gain money.
There are situations where the lottery, on average, has become a good investment, because the payout exceeds the odds. This is fine for the lottery officials, because they were never expecting 100% return...and if one week they pay out more than they take in, thats ok...you just have to wait for that week to occur (which obviously is not every week)
but meanwhile, back in the real world, all that happens, is you put down a dollar, and you lose the dollar, cause the odds are still astronomical...
however, for institutional investors, there are times when it would make good sense to buy 100 million lottery tickets or so, and bank on winning not only the grand prize, but all those smaller prizes for partial matches as well....which is exactly why such practices are banned in all the states lotteries that I know about....
anyway, I tend to agree, that these lottery programs are a complete waste of time.
