Lotteries do not necessarily help the nation.


Lotteries are very helpful to the nation. There are two types of lotteries; lotteries held by companies such as lotto 49 and lotteries held by organizations or people.

Lotteries are very beneficial. I will talk about lottery companies first. Firstly, they employ citizens and create jobs like administrators and other service jobs. The money those employees earn is another's business' revenue. Therefore, lottery companies create many jobs whose disposable income keep the economy going. Secondly, they pay taxes and add to the national income. Lottery companies pay taxes like any other company and the taxes are used to provide free schools and welfare services as well as being used to build the country's infrastructure. Moreover, it provides an unprobable chance but still at a chance for the poor to escape the poverty trap and to become rich.

Lotteries held by charitable organization or individuals in order to solve an issue are also beneficial. Firstly, charitable lotteries donate money to charity [1]. This is clearly not a waste to the country since the money is going to charities who have a good cause. Lotteries could also be used to lift people out of problems like medical bills or natural disasters [2].

Lotteries are a great source of income for nations, they create a dream of wealth that everyone wants but yet nobody gets.
