He knows winning the jackpot is real, but he has faith he personally will win it, and that faith is irrational (not based on solid evidence). Because the faith is misplaced there is a great chance he will be wrong and lose everything.
Conviction or faith does not equal correctness.
It's pretty simple, Disson8or got it, but if you wanna just focus on the jackpot being real "issue" and miss the actual point, that's your choice.
