Default The No. 1 state for lottery suckers

State lotteries have the longest odds of any form of legal gambling. And if you’re from the Peach State, odds are you’re losing more than most.
I guess my redneck retirement hopes maybe in jepoardy

I've done ok with scratch offs It's not a total waste... we're paying for some kids to go to school. If we can cut the execs salary at the lotto board and eliminate waste HOPE will survive.

Lottery tickets are basically a tax on the poor.

I am a seldom scratch ticket buyer buy it is probably more than 3 years since I have won anything but the cost of the ticket. Even those are rare for me... Just another way to toss money out the window and have the state be the recipient.
