I mean if you play a whole lot the costs will outweigh the benefits. Most of the return is negative from the get go, but some people may win the very first time they play. If you continue to play after that first win close to an infinite amount of times you will eventually begin to lose money. This is a classic Monte Carlo simulation type of thing. The more you play the closer to a normal distribution you will get with the center of the distribution being a negative value.

I depends, are you buying them in hopes of it being an investment or do you see it as a dollar of entertainment that could become more than just that.

If the former it's an idiot tax, if the latter by all means have some fun just don't ever expect to come out ahead.

I will buy a few 5 or 10 dollar tickets every couple months. The odds are definitely against you but I have won 500 dollars off of a few tickets. It just depends on your financial situation in my opinion. Don't blow the rest of your money on it if you're broke just because you " have a chance ".

My parents play the lottery twice a week, every week. And twice a week, every week I have to tell them how ****ing stupid and hopeless they are. They are poor as ****, my father is about to lose his job at age 62, and they risk foreclosure on their house because every week that goes by, their savings gets just a little bit smaller, until they will no longer be able to afford mortgage payments. But lo and behold, they continue dumping money into that idiotic conquest of some day winning the lottery and escaping their poverty!

Any and all people that willingly support the lottery are entirely at fault for how extorted the average American is. If you don't think you're not directly funding organized crime and lining the pockets of the most vile people on Earth, then you should go to your garage, turn on your car, and suck the tailpipe until you die.

although the return is mostly negative I feel the majority of people who win the huge jackpots are the elderly.

OP, sense your 18 now I suggest you buy 1 power ball ticket, twice a week, every week.

By the time you are 70, you are bound to win.
