As one buys a lottery ticket, the lottery owner promises that the chance to win is 50-50. However, the actual chance of winning is 1-600,000,000. This fact has discouraged many gamblers, but some still do not know of this. Many lotteries have become scams to cheat others, while others have slowly raised the price for each ticket. Due to these reasons, many state governments have closed down lotteries and declared them illegal. If the lottery is supposedly illegal and risky, is it worth it to buy a lottery ticket?
Although many lotteries are unreliable and unfair, some still risk their money for one ticket. For one reason, the lottery does award the winner with millions of dollars should one be extremely lucky. Many of these lotteries also get advertised on television to display its “innocence.” Additionally, some tickets these days cost more than the actual prize, ripping off thousands and millions of dollars. How is the lottery worth the risk if the ticket costs more than the actual prize, with the fact that the chance to win is desperately low?
Lotteries are chances for gamblers to try their luck, but are the lotteries worth entering? Many have become scams, while others have been dishonest and unfair. The lottery is one reason that people lose their homes and all their money. In an effort to end these costly deals, state governments have closed hundreds of lotteries. But their efforts will be in vain if the public does not do anything to assist them. Lotteries are not only unfair scams to cheat others of money, but they are also corruptions in the public environment.
