WHY DO WE KEEP PLAYING THE LOTTERY?


It’s been around for more than 20 years now in the UK, so just why are we still playing the National Lottery (sorry, Lotto)? The chances of us winning the jackpot are as slim as they’ve ever been - around 1 in 14 million if so-called ‘experts’ are to be believed, yet thousands of us still play on a weekly basis with the dream of becoming multi-millionaires.

You can put it down to habit, superstition or just the dream of becoming a lottery winner and being able to buy houses, cars, holidays and all the clothes and accessories you can lay your hands on; but the fact of the matter is that 20 years on we still haven’t won...so why bother?

Ironically, that’s one of the reasons that many still do try their luck. With people dropping out and giving up on the Lotto dream we increase our own chances by staying “in it to win it”. The probability of us actually winning remains slim, as I’ve already mentioned, yet a lot of us maintain the hope that this week is our week and with everyone who does give up on playing our chances improve.

There is also the part of our brain that keeps telling us “if you don’t play this week, they will be your numbers that come out of the machine” and we overrule the logical part of our brains in favour of the more irrational side that is spurred on by the devil on our shoulder.

Another reason is that the Internet has made playing the lottery more easily accessible and even opened up doors to overseas draws. When the lottery first started we would fill in the paper slip in the newsagents or supermarket and they would give us the little paper receipt with our numbers on. Today, you can go onto a website like www.lottosend.com and play a draw from another country from your home in the UK.

It’s also believed, according to research, that the ‘poorer’ we are the more likely we are to play the lottery to try and turn £1 into £1 million or more. It’s an ambitious dream and definitely not one that everyone should try but you can understand it to some extent. 

Personally, I’m a fan of playing around special occasions like birthdays and Christmas. I really like spending £1 on a lottery ticket and putting it inside the person’s birthday or Christmas card. Yes I know it means I probably won’t see a penny if they win, and they might not win anything anyway, but it’s a little something that could turn into a big something!
