Taxes on the lottery. Why?

Now, in the real world, lottery taxes make sense. Someone needs to build our schools and protect us and we should need to pay a small price for that. But, on a Minecraft prison server? It doesn't add up. For those of you who don't do the lottery, after you win a coinflip or win the lottery, they charge (I believe) a 6% tax on anything you win. It is ridiculous. For me, I feel discouraged to use the lottery system. With a coinflip, I have a 50/50 chance of winning, and logically, I should win x2 as much if I win? Or if I have a 1/3 chance of winning I should win x3 as much? No. You lose 6% on that. To me, it seems like it's a lose-lose situation that doesn't even need to be there. That money isn't going anywhere and it's just being taken out of the economy. If there's a reason behind this please explain but otherwise, I just see no reason for the tax.
