Should a middle class person feel guilty for buying lottery tickets ?


So....I always battle with this guilt.
In my state, most lottery winners I have seen are always very poor people, or small businessmen whose business you have never heard of. I have never seen a Doctor, Lawyer, Engineer, or someone else within this bracket win the lotto.

Makes me wonder if I shouldn't buy lotto tickets if I fall into this bracket.
I mean, I'm nowhere near the top of the food-chain in my profession. I have like no real savings, as a young man I still have the big costs of;
1) marriage
2) house
3) vehicle
4) studying a 2nd degree
to think of.

And sometimes I feel like you know... a lil lotto win would go a long way.

But then I guilt trip myself and start thinking "What if I do win, and then people start jerring about Vincymon, a professional claiming poor people's lotto money."

Am I being paranoid ? Or is this a real thing...is it considered bad etiquette to win the lotto if you have a white-collar job ?
