The Problems With the Lottery

The lottery is a form of gambling where numbers are drawn to win prizes. The winnings may be a lump sum or an annuity paid in installments. Lotteries are regulated by state or provincial governments. They are popular and raise billions of dollars for state coffers. However, the prizes they offer are often unsatisfactory. The lottery is not without its critics, who point to its role as a tool of state capitalism and its tendency to exacerbate inequality.

People like to gamble and there’s no doubt that many of them want to be the lucky one who wins the big jackpot. Whether this is an inextricable human impulse or not, there are other things going on that make lottery a problematic enterprise. Lottery advertising is geared toward encouraging people to spend money on the game, which is at odds with the overall mission of government.

The casting of lots to decide fates and share property has a long record in human history. The practice was common in ancient cultures, including the Roman Empire and among Native Americans. Benjamin Franklin even held a lottery during the American Revolution, raising funds for cannons to defend Philadelphia against the British.

Most state lotteries are run as a business, and so the focus is on maximizing revenue. That inevitably leads to a number of problems, not the least of which are societal and individual harms. It also skews the distribution of wealth. The bulk of ticket sales and winnings go to the organizer, and from there a percentage is used for administrative costs, promoting the lottery, and paying the prize winners.

This has led to a lot of questionable practices, such as presenting misleading information about the odds of winning (lotto jackpots are typically paid in annual payments for 20 years, with inflation dramatically eroding their current value); promoting “lucky” numbers and places; selling “systems” that promise to increase your chances of winning; and other forms of irrational gambling behavior.

Many states have laws that prohibit the sale of tickets to minors, and it’s essential that these be followed. Additionally, lottery officials should be transparent about the ways they make money. For example, they should explain that the large jackpots are partly due to marketing, and how much of the prize pool is actually available to be distributed as prizes. They should also provide detailed information about their operations and the rules governing them. This will help reduce the number of minors who play and the harm that results from it.

Tottenham dan Juventus dapat Bersaing Dapatkan Milenkovic

Pemain bertahan Fiorentina, Nikola Milenkovic menjadi salah satu pemain yang diburu oleh oleh klub Premier League dan Serie A jika Giuseppe Iachini tidak memperpanjang kontrak sang pemain asal Serbia tersebut.

Bek muda Fiorentina, Nikola Milenkovic sudah berpotensi untuk meninggalkan klubnya sebelum laga Serie A dimulai. Masa kontraknya berakhir pada akhir tahun 2022. Sang pelatih, Giuseppe Iachini harus segera memberikan keputusan sebelum pemain berusia 23 tahun itu di dapatkan secara gratis pada bursa trasnfer nantinya.

Sang pemain bertahan asal Serbia itu tentunya memiliki banyak peminat yang ingin mendatangkannya seperti klub raksasa serie A, Juventus dan juga Tottenham Spurs yang sangat tertarik untuk mendatangkan.

Nyonya tua memang bisa dikatakan sedang membutuhkan pemain bertahan jika I Bianconeri bertekad untuk melepaskan Merih Demiral. Jelasnya Milenkovic bisa menjadi kandidat pertama yang akan diturunkan ke Turin dengan catatan harga yang dipasarkan masih cukup di akal.

Memiliki usia yang tergolong cukup muda, Nyonya tua sama sekali tidak ada keraguan dengan performa yang ia miliki dan akan menunggu sampai kontraknya berakhir pada tahun depan.

Sejauh ini, Milenkovic terlihat sangat enggan untuk memperpanjang kontrak barunya dengan Fiorentina. Meskipun enggan untuk perpanjang masa kontraknya, Milenkovic tetap memberikan penampilan yang cukup puas selama ia mengabdi bersama klubnya.

Tapi, ketetarikan Tottenham sendiri hanya sebagai opsi terakhir apabila rencana untuk mendatangkan Cristian Romero tidak membuahkan hasil atau gagal.

Kabarnya Milenkovic  sudah bisa melakukan negosiasi dengan tim dengan cara gratis pada tahun 2022. Pengabdian yang diberikan sang pemain bertahan tersebut sudah patut mendapatakan apresiasi oleh klubnya sendiri. Namun sampai saat ini Milenkovic masih belum mendapatkan penambahan gaji dari klub yang ia bela.

Alasannya Milenkovic tidak ingin memperpanjang kontrak dengan Fiorentina karena ia sudah tidak nyaman lagi bermain dengan klub tersebut dan mengangap klub tersebut bukan lagi rumah untuknya.

Milenkovic lebih memilih untuk bermain di Premier League daripada harus kembali bermain di Serie A walaupun ia memiliki sahabat kecilnya di Juventus, Paolo Dybala.
