The Guardians of the Galaxy lottery ticket machine on Knowhere gives players the chance - potentially with the chance to win five million units... right? Somebody has to win, it might as well be you, right? Well, maybe and maybe not. We'll take you through what happens either way, as well as where to find the Knowhere lottery machine, so you can answer the question: should you buy the lottery ticket in Guardians of the Galaxy?
Should you buy the Guardians of the Galaxy lottery ticket on Knowhere?
Almost certainly not - have you never heard of lottery odds before? The Knowhere lottery ticket in Guardians of the Galaxy literally cannot lead you to a win, as even if it's the right ticket, there's no way to redeem it later on. Though you do come back to Knowhere at a further point in the plot of the Guardians of the Galaxy game, the lottery machine is no longer there, so it can neither tell you if you were successful, nor allow you to redeem the ticket even if you were. This is in keeping with a lot of Knowhere's general business ethos: everything is designed to fleece you of money, and what isn't an overt scam is at the very least unreliable.
That being said, there is one reason and one reason alone to buy it: if you're aiming for full completion in the database. The lottery ticket counts as an item that adds towards that section of the database itself, so you can't get full completion without it. For that reason you might want to spend the money in one of your playthroughs - just don't expect to get any real return on that investment.
Knowhere lottery ticket machine location
If you're looking to buy a lottery ticket, you can find it outside the entrance to the Collector's Emporium. Leave by the main entrance and directly opposite at the other end of the walkway is the lottery machine, a round little silver stall with a sign that reads "Knowhere Lottery" and some people clustered around it. Interact with it and you'll be provided with the option to buy a ticket for 1000 units. Again, we're not willing to endorse this purchase unless you're in it for 100% completion, because there's literally no way to win.
