You probably have heard many people promising methods to win millions and millions of dollars easily. I tell you this right now: that 's not true. You probably have heard scientists and skeptics saying that it is almost impossible to win this type of draw; they say that your chances are 1 in 45 million, that the draws are designed to be virtually impossible to get the winning combination, and that you waste your money every time you buy tickets.
In this format there is risk to the organizer if insufficient tickets are sold. More commonly the prize fund will be a fixed percentage of the receipts. A popular form of this is the "50–50" draw where the organizers promise that the prize will be 50% of the revenue.

If most form of lottery was “50-50” and the 50% goes to our revenue, it really a big help to our government.

Another example is how the government and states are holding their own gambling games through the lottery (Steinberg). In fact, the way the states are going about holding the lotteries seems to be just a more organized, mass way of gambling.
