You play the lottery religiously every week. yet, every wee, somebody else wins. It's never you. It's so hard to win. Do you ever find yourself asking the question, "Why is it so hard to win the lottery?" The lottery is designed to be that way, otherwise it wouldn't work.
Consider this - If every man, woman, and child in the United States of America bought one ticket for the Powerball lottery, only just one or two of them would win. That's how hard it is to win. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are an astronomical 1-195-million. Here's another example - If every citizen of Canada bought just one Lotto 649 ticket, only about two of them would win. The odds of winning Lotto 649 are approximately 1-in-14-million.
Do you see how hard it is to win? Why do they make it that difficult? There are a few reasons. But, mainly, the lotto needs to be difficult to win so that the jackpots can grow. People buy tickets because they're interested in winning a big jackpot. If it was easy to win, the jackpots would not grow. Many people would win it and, most of the time, the jackpots would have to be split amongst many people. People would just stop playing if there were no big prizes available to be won.
So, yes, the lottery is hard to win. However, that does not mean that it's impossible to win. You can increase your odds of winning by buying more tickets or joining a lottery pool. Or, maybe, you just need some luck. People do get lucky, you know?
