look at the lines outside those gambling outlets
most of them are aunties, ahpehs, ah mas, all heartlanders
In the US, its the same. Always mostly the lower income group of people buying. hoping they will win and not have to work for the rest of their lives
Only when the lottery hits like 44 million, then people of all income groups start buying
But generally its the lower income, poor people who buy.
You want to see how winning the lottery will affect you?
Read all 5 pages of this washingtonpost article
it chronicles the events that followed after the winner of the $314 million lottery won the lottery. See how he changed and destroyed just not himself but the lives all so many around him. It was posted on Sunday. I read it from top to bottom. Ending up feeling totally disgusted
