Lottery and Gaming
It’s no secret that lotteries have been big business for decades, not only in the US, but around the globe. In the US alone in 2016, adults spent $72.7 billion on lottery tickets of all kinds. With jackpots reaching into the hundreds of millions of dollars, it’s no wonder lottery fever catches people from all walks of life, nor is it any wonder that people will go to extreme lengths to try to cheat the system. Every day, millions of people hand over hard-earned money for a chance at wealth, and every day, thousands of others scheme ways to defraud the system. In both cases, the lure of instant wealth (or even just an extra 20 bucks), draws folks to play some form of a lottery ticket.
