"The Lottery...was the one public event to which the proles paid serious attention"
The proles loved the lottery and paid close attention because the lottery was their chance to win prizes weekly. It made them happy and gave them hope in a life of drudgery. Unfortunately, many of the prizes didn't really exist, and the winners weren't real people. The few real people to wim the lottery generally received very small prizes.
