When we think about lotteries and the way they are changing lives, we generally only consider the individual winners. We think about how they can live their dreams after winning the biggest lottery jackpot. They can quit their jobs and retire from working altogether if they choose. Maybe they will spend their time traveling the world. Many new winners buy luxury items like new sports cars or that expensive watch they always wanted. Some choose to invest in buying their dream home. Others change their lives by becoming their own boss and start their own business using some of their winnings.
There are other ways the lottery changes lives. It’s not just changing the lives of the winner but others as well. Say that person that won the latest lottery jackpot wants to buy a home or better yet build their dream home. They will employ the services of many people in order to complete that project. This will provide income for all those involved in building the home plus perhaps commissions for everyone from the seller to all of the people at businesses supplying everything for the home including appliances and furniture. Any money being put back into the local economy will have a positive impact.
There other ways that lotteries are changing lives as well. Almost all lotteries retain part of the revenue from ticket sales to be used for a variety of needs. Obviously some of the money is used to maintain the lottery as a business including all of the marketing, development of new games, operational needs and general wages for all of its employees. By the way, simply employing people to run the lottery is a way its changing lives as well. More importantly lotteries give back part of the money raised to a variety of outlets. In the US, specifically Florida, the lottery has given billions to education including everything from funding new schools, development of new programs and providing grants to those that need it. In the UK, the lottery helps fund programs for their Olympic athletes by providing them with state of the art training facilities and other needs.
So, when we think of how the lottery is changing lives, we can look at the far reaching effects from just the act of purchasing that potentially winning ticket. So go online today and play. You will not only change your life, but the lives of many more.
