It seems like some kind of scam (or gamble) to me tbh.

You buy a few lottery tickets in hopes of winning a million dollars, but very few people actually get to win the lottery, so most people end up losing their money for nothing.

My father buys lottery tickets like almost every year. He's been doing it since I was a young boy in kindergarten. He hasn't won the lottery yet, but he seems to be hoping that he eventually will win the lottery. He's losing money for nothing.
