Playing the Lottery
Playing the lottery is one of the most popular forms of gambling. In some countries, however, it is actually illegal. In some other countries, national lotteries exist where very large jackpots can be won.
Lotteries are also a controversial subject. Because the odds of winning the jackpot can be ridiculously high, the act of purchasing a ticket is seen by some as ridiculous in itself. Further, the needy and the poorer amongst us are more likely to purchase tickets, making this an unfair burden on the needier. However, buying a ticket is voluntary. Keen players comment on the thrill of an anticipated win and the realistic possibility of becoming extremely wealthy.
And make no mistake, you will be wealthy when you finally strike it lucky and hit the jackpot. To find out more, click on

The highest jackpot ever on offer from any game was over $300 million! (I would probably be too scared to play lest I should win).
Many winners prefer to purchase individual tickets. Some players will purchase multiple tickets for the same draw. Recurrent players tend to form alliances known as syndicates which is smart because a quarter of all wins are by syndicates.
Countries with national lotteries include USA, Canada, UK, Spain, Australia, Japan and South Korea. Many of these countries have technology in place that facilities online ticket purchases.
