These are people not likely to be very good at estimating the odds of a win.

I suspect the bulk of customers do not buy with anything approximating financial sense in mind. The attraction of a lottery ticket or scratch card is in the thrill of risk, the license to daydream about possible winnings, the attraction of bragging rights if any significant amount is won, and silly impulse. Odds are fairly irrelevant I would think.
