For those who dream of quitting their jobs and being independently wealthy, the lottery is an affordable way to take some chances and move toward a goal. Lotteries have been a great support to those aspiring to be great through the stroke of luck. The lotteries have been a source of income to the people who believe that the lady luck is on their side.

The different states of United States of America have different patterns of lotteries and they have different types of ceiling and winning amounts too. Many states allow the players lottery in advance. If they have a favorite set of numbers, they can pay in advance to have their numbers played in the same game for weeks in a row. With such discounted terms the people are allured in to betting on the favorite number over and over again. Thereby increasing their chances..
The high end lotteries are mostly interstate lotteries. There is a provision for the game to be spread over a number of states. The popular games like Powerball, Mega Millions and Hot Lotto have gained high following as they have been a source of very high rewards to the players. With the amount of prize money increasing, the chances of winning also multiply and thus many people are seen to follow the interstate extravaganza rather then local games. Over two thirds states in United States of America have different local games and they can make a person win up to $500 daily.
The whole concept of playing the game is about getting the nearest match to the number in your lottery. There is no trick involved. Its sheer luck and only luck that can get some return to the ticket buyer. The person has an incentive because the prizes may range from $5 to $100,000 and for a ticket of $1 to $5 who would not be driven to give in to the bet.
The lottery licensees are generous in many states but not in all at times the outflow in prizes may stretch up to 75 % of the collection. While keeping the matching concept of the lottery ticket the organizers dole out huge sums in prizes. In most cases the maximum matching ticket gets nearer to the Jackpot. The hundred percent match is the Jackpot winner. the prize would decrease as a ticket is remote from the drawn numbers.
The system is flawless as there are picking up machines that will decided the winning combinations and the machines have no human indulgence. At times the drawing of the number is shown live on television and thus they try to make it as transparent as possible. The system of carry over of the prize amount is also prevalent. The prize money of each lottery jackpot starts at one big amount say $100,000. this amount will grow up to the time until a person wins it. Thus the incentive to play at the later stages is far more then at the beginning. The prize money has reached an exorbitant $193 million in the state of California.
Another type of lottery is on the racecourse. Although there is a lot of glamour and lights are attached to the show but a common man is equally attracted towards it. The bets include the betting on the race time, the winner of the race to the favorite horse in the competition.
It can be seen that in all states of the United States of America the small tickets of $1 are fetching millions and lotteries have become a regular investment for some people. This is surely to remain a mainstay of people's aspiration. Wanna bet'!!!
