The difference is that the rich who use only their disposable incomes in playing the lottery but the poor used their hard earned money who look at the game as their way out of poverty. I’ve heard from the news that Eastern Samar Representative filed a resolution directing the House committee on games and amusements to investigate “the rationale of the system, play rules and conduct of the mega lotto draws, and its widespread effect on people to compulsively play the game, and recommend appropriate legislation.”
Half of the Philippine population is below the poverty line .Millions and millions of people in the Philippines are doing what they can to make their lives easier and prosperous but to no avail and lotto seemed to be their hope of alleviating their lives from poverty. But what is a persons chances in winning in this real ? I was curious about it so I surfed the answer online. For the Mega lotto, a statistician computed it as one in 28,989,675 . This means 28,989,675 is the total number of 6-digit combination . Buying 2 tickets bumps your chances only to 2 in 28,989,675. The chances is so slim yet everyone who are flocking the lotto outlet believed that they gonna win !
