Definition: Lottery, n. A game played by someone bad at math.

Games are entertainment. Games are short duration and thus simulate trading, not investing. Game money is not real money. Game rules, risks and returns are not market rules, risks and returns. Games don't include limit orders, commissions, margin costs, income taxes on dividends and capital gains, or the opportunity cost of player's time. Games benefit sponsors. Free trading games, like free drug samples, can lead to addiction.
