What The Finance Causes Broke Lottery Winners And Losers!?

We've all heard how terrible our odds are when playing the lotto, but for some reason we keep buying tickets anyway. Matt and Eddie decide to dive into the details on the statistics of lottery winners and losers on this week's podcast. First the guys ask, who is actually buying these lottery tickets? You might be surprised by the answer.

Matt and Eddie then break down how long the folks who have won the lottery are typically able to hold onto their winnings. (Hint: the winners don't typically leave it for their heirs.)

So the guys then ask, who are the real winners of the lottery? Somebody is making some money.

Listen as the guys give the stats and horror stories associated with the lottery in front of a live crowd at FinCon 2015.
