The American lottery monetary prize system has been popular for quite some time now. Everyday citizens purchase tickets with randomized whole numbers printed on them and see if their numbers match randomized numbers selected by the state lottery board and if they do, their ticket is worth much prize money.
The lottery represents human fascination with understanding and trying to artificially (and therefore entertainingly) create prediction statistics models. Since there is always room for error in statistics probability calculations, creating a game that fosters the imagination of hypothetical number prediction models favors a socially harmless uncertainty anxiety mind game that perhaps reflects the psychological value of Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Big Night" (1996).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
