 Lottery? 18.01.2003 (12:42 Uhr) ichbinmotz
Today I saw a lottery advertisment. Depicted was a woman from cleaning personel with a happy smile. I thought that this ad was quite cynical because the target group of lottery games seem to be those who have no money, but a strong desire (or the illusion to get rich fast) for it. So it is the poorest of the poorest who are taken advantage of. No rich man or women would ever play lottery because it is unnecessary for him. They may even laugh about it.

Well, everybody wants to be rich and famous. At least rich. To not have to worry about money issues. I think the wealthy ones only laugh about such ads because they've already got money. Don't you think that they'd too would try to win money if they suddenly lost it?

You are absolutely right.

The fact that bothers me is that marketing is pulling the last money out of those who already have less by "promising" them huge amounts of money in case they win.

I worked for such a company once and was told that they indeed give away trips into the Carribean, but that occurs once in two years or so. It is only a method of seducing people to spend their money, give their adresses or emailadresses, etc.

Lately, in Budapest, a couple won 13 Million Euros. That money was supposed to be devided between the winners in case that there will be no one that wins the jackpot. I was considering to play too but droped the idea, because I did not have a plan to spend such an amount of money intelligently. So I decided not to play. And I did not regret it...

13 million Euros...wow.
Call me superstitious if you want to, but I could never be happy with money which I'd had won. I'd always think that something horrible would be going to happen, because I simply can't be that lucky. But we're not talking about me here.

But marketing doesn't really pull the money out of not so wealthy people. It is still their descicion to play.

Absolutely. There is no doubt. It is their choice to play or not.

Once there was a case in Austria where somebody won 70000 Euro and passed the whole sum over to Caritas, some kind of non-government organization.

This guy truly surprised me.

I haven't heard about this guy.
This was a very nice thing to do, I think I'd have kept some of the money.
