Why Do People Buy Lotteries

Have you ever asked yourself, why do people buy lotteries. Not why do people buy lotteries online, because we all know that’s to do with convenience. Not to mention the security of not losing their tickets or having to line up for yonks when those lottery jackpots go wild. Nope, we’re specifically wondering why people buy lottery tickets at all.

Think about it. How many times have you been told that you were crazy to waste your money buying lottery tickets? Or that you would never, ever win the lottery. Well, duh!  :roll_eyes: The truth is they’re the ones that will never win the lottery, because they don’t buy tickets.

Buying a lottery ticket means that we’re in the lottery draw, whatever that draw is. It could be this Thursdays $40 million Aussie PowerBall or the $46 million California SuperLotto. By buying a ticket we are in the draw and we have has much chance as anyone as far as winning the big one goes.

Do you think that any of those multi millionaires who have won the lottery thought that they would? Of course not. Most of them have probably been buying lottery tickets for years. Then one day their perseverance paid off and they finally won the jackpot.

Let’s face it. We live in hope. The hope that one day we will finally buy the winning lottery ticket. The ticket that will change our lives. The ticket that will finally give us the chance to tell out boss where to shove his job. Or in the case that we love our job, the ticket that will enable us to do all the things that we have always dreamt of doing.

Speaking of, what would you do if you won the lottery? Would you by outrageously expensive gifts, like this bottle of perfume that is worth over $400,000! Me, I’d invest my money in real estate. I’d get a nice house on the Riviera. Another nice one overlooking my favourite seaside town Victor Harbor. Heck, I might even get one in Hawaii. Not only that I’d have an exotic car in each one   :)


Online Sport Betting

I’m an Aussie and us Aussies love our sport. There’s also a fair few of us who love to place a bet or two. That’s probably why online sport betting is growing in popularity. If you haven’t had the pleasure of placing your sports bet online there’s probably no better site than William Hill which I wrote about previously. Like I mentioned in that post William Hill is probably the most secure online sport betting site because they’ve been around for so long.

It’s not just their experience and online resources that makes them such a popular online sport betting site either. It’s also because online sport betting isn’t the only online betting service offered by William Hill. Nope, members can play anything from Bingo to the splendour of their online EuroGrand Casino.

AFL Sport Betting

Like I mentioned earlier, I’m an Aussie and I don’t mind having a flutter on the AFL, also known as Aussie Rules. Of course, if you’re not an true bred Aussie, you might refer to it as Australian Rules, as in the image below.

What I found really interesting though is that as a member I have the opportunity to bet on almost any sporting even in the world. Do I want to bet on the tennis? Not a problem, Shit, I can bet on just about everything, including, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Volleyball, Snooker, even Darts. Do you know what I found really amusing, you can even bet on politics! Heck, I never, ever would of thought of politics as a sport.  :lol:

As far as the footy goes I recon I’ll have a little wager on the Port Power Crows Showdown this weekend. A $10 wager on Port Power will get me $16 whereas a $10 bet on the Crows will get me $21. I really want the Crows to win but that’s probably not the way to go. What to do, what to do  :ponder:

The Benefit Of Joining More Than One Online Betting Site

I can almost hear some of you saying that you’re not interested because you’re already a member of an online betting site. Let me ask you this question. What are you going to do when your just about to place a bet when your online betting site is down. It’s gone offline and has now left you hanging. I know it’s  happened before, I witnessed it on the news just today. So, many disappointed punters. Thing is there was no need to be disappointed if only they had a backup site to turn to.

Something else to keep in mind is that William Hill has their own mobile app to give members the best online betting experience possible.

I just went to join William Hill so I could place a bet on the Crows winning the Showdown only to find out their site isn’t available to Aussies for Aussie sporting events. Not to worry because they directed be to an absolutely brilliant Aussie site. The site is called SportingBet. They do a lot more than allowing members to place bets on the AFL too. So much so that I think they dererve their own post.
