A tax on people who can't do math.
The odds of winning $1 million in the lottery are around a billion to one. Good luck. You'll need it.

False hope; a tease; an "easy way out" that can never be obtained.
Billy spent $100 on lottery tickets and didn't even win that much back.

An idea stolen by the government from the people who ran them illegally. Many states send a percentage of lottery revenue to the public school system.
People are going to play the lottery whether is it legal on not, so why not let the government control it?
In Texas, 30% of revenue is reserved for public schools while only 7% goes to the lottery commission.

Millions of stupid people paying into a fund to make one stupid person look smart.
I'm going to play the powerball tonight even though I have a better chance of being hit by lightning twice than of winning this lottery.

(n.) 1. A satanic device invented by the government to exhort billions of dollars from the populace. It might as well just be called another tax.
