Government brings in $6 Billion a year in Lotteries!...WOW!
There's 1 way to stimulate the economy ..More and Bigger Jackpots/Money Prizes!
Where does all the money go?
Apparently The economy can't be in too bad of shape..It would seem as though people are still gambling in the lost/last hope, of trying to "WIN BIG" ,inorder to pay off that bursting debt.
I have always felt that Governments shouldn't be in the Casino/Entertainment business..Should be privately run under fair rules and regulations..
What are the chances of "Winning big" off a government run system addicted to profits?Well ..It is certain, the odds are not stacked in our favour...But For Government run lotteries ,gaming and entertainment industry..It is a constant Jackpot payout .Win/win
In ontario there are way more Casino's then are necessary...If I had my way, I would close down many smaller Casino's .For the most part, to me, they are not entertaining at all.. Crammed/cramped/ packed full of "Big Grumpy Loser's"..(lol.)....
Having said that..Niagra falls is a great entertainment hotspot.....Where else do you have the power ,the wonder, a great marvell of nature.. Mixed with the allure and excitement of good fun and "Big Money "?......AAAhhh ya ...You can smell it in the air..The smell of green is everywhere!...It is the place 2B...4 me..Cuz At least you can enjoy the true awesomeness of "The falls" for free ..after you loose all your money on gambling and entertainment..(lol)...You might as well get the biggest bang for your entertainment $$$ in this "Casino State"...
I've done my own " In field " research study on Government gaming ...The conclusion ,,The odds are stacked against you!...(Not to mention I think the government cheats...although it would be hard to prove it)...(lol)Most people say they don't trust the way government s spend their tax $$$$...Yet a large # of those same people , take the chance risking all their money , at the Government run industry!...Hmmmm ..go figure...
Lotteries and gaming facilities are a win/win for the government ..but ...unfortunatley , far more than not ,a loose/loose for gamers and local business's!(places like niagra/vegas are exceptions)..Be careful ,Drink and game responsibly because sure, the government has no problem helping spend your money on Gamblin and boozin..But will be hard pressed to help you, when your bust ,broke and hungover ..That's when it's no fun at all...and just doesn't seem fair..(boo hoo)
There should be an independent study done on Canada's lottery and gaming industry..People deserve fair play and transparent rules on returns and actual payouts for gamers...
What are your odds of winning?(slim)
Where does the money go?(who knows exactly)
"Play for fun,not for broke.".."know your limit , play within it ," "drink responsibly" ....and all those other slogans/signs Governments post on the walls, in the over abundant ammount of Gaming establishments and liquor stores throughout the country.(most in Ont)
There is way too much secrecy in the government gaming world ..It's time for the lottery and gaming corp, to open the door and allow more independent studies/research ,on regulations, fair pay/play and affect of gambling in this country. . People should have the right to know how the Gaming industry works and where all that money goes?
I wonder how much of Ontario's "have not" status can be pinned on the numerous gaming facilities?( is this a real factor?))
What are the odds of the government opening the doors to investigate issues with lottery/gaming corp?.....
Slim to none ..I would bet!
Transparentcy and accountablity, as well as, More and Bigger Jackpot prizes for all!!.Now That , would be stimulating !....
No offence ten penny .just had to get this post on before my computer Drains..
