In Singapore, many people are willing to spend money and time queueing to buy lottery. Nevermind if they have not won for a long time. They say: "when I strike, I will be rich!" But more often than not, probability of striking rich is lottery is one in a million! There are so so called lottery system or computer software that might beat the lottery game. Any views on this?

It is the lure of becoming rich. Easy money. The stories make it seem like it could be easily you. You and I know that it is against the odds. Others cannot seem to fathom that. \ It is really sad that many will take food money or rent money to buy these lottery tickets. Kind of like the people that often squander money at the race track. Betting the wheel method can bring results, a computer possibly however that is for a select few and not the common man.

People always want to get rick quick so they figure they'll spend one dollar and hope that they are the winner, after all someone has to win right? The truth is since the odds are so low if they put the dollar away every time they bought a lottery ticket it would be just like winning the lottery. The lottery systems may increase your odds of winning but will never guarantee it.

If you think you can't win, you won't win. Ever saw "The Secret" or read only just any general Law of Attraction? When people queue to buy lottery, what they are buying really is HOPE. Hope is one of the drivers of life.

I have been lucky winng the lottery if you don't play how can you win. I have won over the years, the most I won was 800.00 about 1 year ago. I was riding down the street on my luch brake and It was a car in front of me, with a out of time liscense plates. My mind told me to play it. and I did. I woke up the next morning I told my grand-daughter. let's go to the store. I want to check to see what the number is that I played, I told the lottery merchant correct me is I am wrong and she said yup, you did win the Lottery. I was so happy. I won alot I think I am lucky.

ya as far as we are going to be human there is always going to be that temp for making quick bucks.... even when we know that its almost impossible for us to win that lottery , some of us still involve in it... thinking their luck might shine on those.... ya i agree with you on the software and they can be used to beat some types of games like poker or so but not something like lottery because the number is choosen very very randomly even the software wouldnt be in a position to predict that....
