Malachi 3:6 כִּי אֲנִי יְהֹוָה לֹא שָׁנִיתִי וְאַתֶּם בְּנֵי־יַעֲקֹב לֹא כְלִיתֶם For I am the Lord, I do not change; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Rav Avigdor Miller speaks about this in a few different shiurim (see below), and the common thread throughout each response is that buying one lottery ticket combined with many tefillos is not considered wasting one's money.
