Look onto any corner of the world and you would see a—probably large—portion of the population struggling just to make ends meet, doing back-breaking work and sparing zero efforts just to provide regular meals to their families. And yet, there are long lines at the bandar togel. Online platforms count thousands upon thousands of individual accounts that make daily regular bets on a game that hinges on entirely random results.
This is not a strange occurrence as many countries that conduct this games witness the near-religious persistence of people trying their luck and hoping for that life-changing jackpot prize in all its alluring elusive glory.
Many would even already have plans on what they would do when they win it “big.” There are those who said they would set up a business, small as it would be, and buy their necessities and stuff to make life more convenient for their family. Meanwhile, there are also those that flings their concerns into the void and profess that “life is a gamble.”
These people say that there is no harm in making that tiny effort—as the stakes in lottery often are the lowest in all gambling formats—in betting on some numbers in that vague hope of hitting it big. They said that the small amount has become a daily comfort akin to a child throwing a coin in a suitably remote well to make a wish. One could prove their continued trust in the fates and live another day with hope rekindled. Or something along those lines.
It didn’t matter whether you’re a student struggling through your years of education or an office worker with some of the higher wages around. If you’re struggling in your everyday life and aware that what you are being given in exchange is not as valuable as you consider the efforts you’ve expended towards getting there, then you have that one wish to make an “explosive turnaround”.
You’d have that one fantasy of one day, with just one innocuous stroke of small effort, you’re suddenly the “winner”. Suddenly you’re rich and famous and beyond that what you’ve had before.
For many of these gambling people, the lottery is their one-shot ticket to a better tomorrow and a better life. They would try their fortune on winning any amount. Even just the wins from getting less than half the numbers right would give them good mood (and good days) for a while. Gambling is already a part of the human psyche, particularly of those who are experiencing struggles and look forward to instant wealth.
Everyone knows that it is immensely difficult to win in the lottery. No one denies that. But to these people, it is easier to take the risk and gamble. If you lose then it’s just a regular day, but if you win? You’re lucky. In short, it all boils down to the idea of trying multitude of times for that one big jackpot. To these people, as long as there is hope and a few coins to spare, they can take the repeated loss for that one chance to win.
