Almost every state in the country has a state lottery. The state lotteries offer a chance to win a life changing payout. However, lotteries are different from other forms of gambling. In most cases, the odds of winning a jackpot are virtually nonexistent. Also, the prize pool is split between the winners. If the jackpot is unclaimed, it resets to a predetermined minimum amount.
