I have no idea why people are willing to go to jail over some scratch-off tickets. They also have no idea if they are big winners or not.
They're not willing to go to jail for some tickets. Criminals generally don't expect to get caught. 10 years in prison isn't a deterrent if you don't think you'll get caught, so plenty of people are willing to take the chance when they think they'll get a lot of money with little risk.
