"Not just self-optimistic, but optimistic in general.

Otherwise there would be no lotteries, casinos or bookies."

No, self-optimistic. Lotteries, Casinos, and Bookies are all fed on the idea of, "I can beat the odds." I admit, I play them once in a while, but only as a tiny "one-in-something-other-than-a-million" longshot with my loose change.
