Is the Lottery a Good Gamble?

Researchers have determined that a person who drives 10 miles to buy a lottery ticket is three times more likely to be killed in a car accident while driving to buy the ticket than he or she is to win the jackpot. Yet, even with nearly impossible odds of ever winning a dime, one out of every four Americans believes their best chance of getting rich is by playing the lottery.
