Is a lottery is a good idea ?

Many people around corners of this world like challenging. They love to try their luck and a lottery is one of those which may change their life. This essay will explain that a lottery provides income to a state as well as big money to the winner. However it may cause serious matter to those over-addicted challengers .

Every year a government earns a lot of money from issuing lottery challenge that serves so important budget to national financial. In some countries, a lottery is very popular among those who want to try lucks. Due to its low investment, not only the rich,  but also the poor can afford this luck in a hope to win an expensive prize. Many people, so that, buy this challenge a year. As a result, being the winner, he or she will be rewarded extremely sum of money comparing to the cheap original invested capital. For example,   10 dollars lottery investment might fetch you thousands dollars or more, who will know !  

Some luck hunters, however, may become serious lottery addicted. They usually put  big money on the game. And as the result they spend almost of their income and that has triggered individual financial insufficient as if they are not lucky. As we may known that the winning chance is very tiny. In calculation , for example, as one thousand competitors, there will be only one winner, so that means 1/1000 winning percent.

In conclusion, a lottery serves a smart benefit to a government and bring great return to some fortune citizens. But some who commit lottery abusing may get monetary crisis. I so that think those luck seekers should keep in mind that lottery is an individual fortune.
