OUT OF LUCK is the first feature-length documentary film to examine State lotteries. Lotteries have expanded to become the largest casino in America, raking in billions of dollars, with little oversight. While repeated studies have shown that poor, under-educated, addicted players make up the bulk of lottery profits, this government program continues its expansion unchecked. Lottery gamblers tell their stories of struggle; experts discuss the concept of the lottery within history, politics, economics and entertainment; true odds of lottery gambling are explained, and where the money really goes is revealed. OUT OF LUCK is the most thorough study of lottery gambling ever put on film and asks the question that everyone has ignored: Is running a gambling-system an appropriate way to raise money for government?
