For instance if you know the trend of the market is going up, your buy Put options in VIX etfs or ETNs example in the recent uptrend VIIX shares have fallen from over $100 to just $36.48 , had you bought PUTS when it was $100 you would have hit the lotto.

Same thing is true if the market trend is down, in that case you buy Calls of VIIX and watch them goe up dramatically another Lotto Hit.

There are many prizes beyond the jackpot, which raises the payback amount. So the payback goes down due to small chance of splitting the prize but is higher than just winning the big prize concludes. Feel free to do the math, but I’ll estimate that a wash.

I would submit to you that this fact is inconsistent with the “just buying a happy dream” explanation.

So I’ve migrated to another justification that I find more satisfying – a lottery ticket is insurance against fate actually having a material influence on me. Given the absurdly small likelihood of winning a material lottery jackpot, I’ve concluded that I probably place a higher (but still absurdly small) likelihood on fate actually having a material influence on my success in so-called random events like the outcome of a lottery ticket. So I can proceed along assuming that the events around me are in fact random, but just in case they aren’t, the occasional lottery ticket acts as my insurance policy.
