What It Feels Like To Win The Lottery
The first issue that one should keep in mind when playing the lottery, whether it’s the United States Lottery, or any other lottery throughout the world, is that your chances are very slim. However, this is probably most of what attracts many individuals around the world to take part in national and state lotteries in the first place.
A second, and perhaps most important, issue that one should think carefully about before playing the lottery is how much winning the lottery will change their life. There are many true stories about individuals who have struck it rich by winning millions of dollars in the lottery, but then somehow losing it all in fame, fortune, or even death.
For example, there are several cases where individuals have won plenty of money in the lottery, but for whatever reason have declared bankruptcy a few years later.
If one just thinks for a moment at how much publicity they’ll receive from winning the lottery and how much their friends and families attitudes will change towards them if they actually win the lottery, then chances are that those who have already won would take it all back if they had the chance to!
On the other hand, there are so many great things and accomplishments that one can take on if you win the lottery. Considering the fact that national lotteries and even state lotteries have very high stakes then this means that an individual usually probably ends up winning over a million dollars or more!
Not only would you be able to put away some money for your children’s college fund, but you’d probably also be able to put money away for your grand children’s college fund, as well as for many other things, including vacations, retirements, new houses for yourself and your family, and even new cars if desired. Retirement is also another issue that is usually saved up for after the lottery has been won, as well as saving for vacations, extra houses, and even brand new automobiles!
As mentioned, though, chances of actually winning the lottery are very, very slim. In other words, you are essentially spending the income that you now have on lottery chances when you could be spending the money on other very important things, like food, clothing, or necessary bills.
Many people don’t realize how much their spending on lottery tickets actually stacks up, but when you calculate the amount that a person spends in a whole year or more on lottery tickets alone the savings could be very huge for someone who lives paycheck-to-paycheck.
Yet, there are millions of people who play the lottery either daily or weekly with no qualms or regrets about it at all. All things considered, winning the lottery can be a great thing for practically everyone. Knowing some of the risks that come with playing and actually winning the lottery, though, is something that must be thought about!
