Reasons To Never Play The Lottery Again

It was found that almost half the population of the USA believes that the only way to realize your financial dreams is to win the Lottery. If you think about this reasonably then you will realize that it is just silly to let your financial security and happiness depend on a game of chance. The truth of the matter is that the best way to become financially secure is to work for it.

The mathematics of the game state that you would need to buy a Lotto ticket every week for almost 270 000 years before you can realistically expect to be a winner. The odds of winning are approximately 1 in 14 million.

The Odds

The number of people playing the Lotto does not affect the odds of your winning it. The odds are related to the number of balls that participate in the draw and this always remains the same. So, the only way to increase your odds of winning would be to increase the amount of tickets and number combinations played.

When you look at facts and maths involved, you will come to the conclusion that your ticket has a one in ten million chance of winning. If your country’s Lottery also require the numbers to be selected in the right order then your odds of winning drops down to a one in fourteen million chance of being a winner.

Predicting the outcome of the Lotto

While this option can seem quite attractive, there is no way of predicting what numbers will come up in the next Lotto draw. Every number has the same odds of being drawn. However, there are many scams online that will try to tell you otherwise. Don’t fall for these so-called ‘gurus’ because if they really had the secret to winning the Lotto, then they would be winning the Lottery every week.

In Conclusion

Relying on the Lottery as a way of realizing your dreams is a lazy and foolish option. Be pro-active and find more reliable ways of making your financial goals a reality.
