Loto-Québec is saving paper by reducing the format of their terminal tickets although nothing’s said about the cost of resizing the design and adjusting all the machines in all the deps.

Well, aren’t they printed on a roll of paper, similar to receipts? Making them shorter wouldn’t require much adjustment, depending on the software used.
True, if the width stays the same.
How about Loto-Quebec saving money by reducing their ad frequency by about 93%.
Sure, they could just get cashiers to flog them in grocery stores.
I can’t remember how it goes exactly, but I thought Trailer Park Boys was clever about this subject. Julian is admonishing Ray for his addiction to video lottery terminals, he tells him “They just want welfare checks back, and it’s working.”
The lottery’s a fool’s game. Lots of people pump the equivalent of a nest egg into lottos over a lifetime without winning anything. Those that do win sometimes come to regret it. Big waste of money if you ask me.

So they say, but I always suspect those accounts come from the depths of a reporter’s schadenfreude.
Anyway, I’d be happy to act as a guinea pig in an experiment to find out whether winning a lot of money would make me happier.
@Kate: Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to win the lotto, I just never will ’cause I refuse to willingly give up any of my hard earned cash to the government when they already take so much of it directly off my paycheque. The overwhelming majority of people who play will always lose. They’re offering “hope” to poor people that is really no hope at all, and people buy into it to such an extent that they can’t afford necessities. I just can’t get behind lottos, and I think aggressive advertising of lottos is despicable, like offering an alcoholic booze.
