That gas stations and liquor stores in poorer state counties, or cities that have a relatively higher income disparity compared to the other cities within their county, tend to have the most lottery ticket winners whether it be from scratchers or draw games?
This is especially more noticable in California. (I’m looking at you Orange County, California, the most expensive CA county to live in, whos practically untouched with lottery winners)
I understand some aspect as to why this seems to be, but surely I’m not the only one that finds it strange as to why this seems to be what it is?
One would think while there are indeed less rich people gambling in the lottery, that they would put in more money for each rare time that they do, thereby evening the odds of lottery entries between the rich and poor communities.
But this doesn’t seem to be the case. Why do guys think that is?
