Not necessarily. I know most people probably don't know the odds but they do know that they are astronomical. Then again, I don't know the investment/return ratio for this lottery, but in Australia the powerball draws which get the big prizes offer you a prize, sometimes above $20m, for a 50c bet. I think the vast majority of people playing these lotteries are aware that to get such a high payout from such a low bet then the odds are going to be ridiculous.
I find these less offensive than poker machines. Now they suck people's money in a hurry.
I rarely buy a ticket in these things but occasionally I do, just for fun. It's nice to dream.
If I won this sort of money I think I'd get a Micro Seiki AP M1, SZ 1 and SX 8000. Maybe add a Continuum Caliburn for something new as well. Would be no problem housing these in the huge man cave I'd have. Would most likely just keep the Blue Angel and add a few more carts for variety.
My System: Micro Seiki BL51 Turntable, Stax UA7 Tonearm, RCM Sensor Prelude Phono Stage, Ortofon MC15 Super II Cartridge, Rotel RCD865BX Cd Player, Melody I34R (Astro Black 40) amp and Osborn Epitome Speakers.
