* Added - This is a subjective question - In practice, the people that purchase lottery tickets the most fall into lower income categories, with their hopes of winning big. For this reason, many people refer to lotteries as a "backwards tax", as those that make the least are often the biggest contributor to the government funds (lottery income).
