19. There are state lotteries with lower payouts and better odds

I think that in lotteries early days, you had a better odds to payout ratio. Maybe it just seems like it these days though.
In a way, I think that it is strange to have jackpots over 10-20 million dollars because most people who grew up poor or middle class literally don't know what to do with that kind of money.
