it's obviously worth the risk if you win but that's not the point.
here's a little lesson in statistics:
let's say you put down 1000$ in scratch off lotto tickets. pretty sure the chance of winning anything on a ticket is 1/4 chance. so your expected winnings are 250 dollars. it's not worth playing lotto. Gambling should never be done to earn money, it should only be done if you feel like having fun and have some spare money that you do not mind losing.
