Winning a Live Draw : A Blessing or A Curse?
Winning in sweepstakes is every Singaporean’s desire, but sad to say, not all know how to deal the sudden jackpot.
Another time of the year has come when people in the neighborhood will once again give their fate a chance of a lifetime, going across their favorite lottery outlets. This year’s most anticipated live draw in Singapore has come, with a jackpot prize of S$12 million. For the people to have more confidence in asking theirs gods to grant them this fortune, Singapore Pools has made gaming packages that start at the a very reasonable price of S$10, and will go up to a price of S$228. The highest package will give you a grand total of 10 more tickets.
Basically, everyone wants to be the jackpot winner. Winning the live draw and seeing that the money in your bank account flooded with just a blink of an eye is indeed a life-changing event in one’s life. Who could imagine that your S$1 will turn out to be S$8 million? And that S$1 only adds up to the lottery’s secretive allure. If we do the math, nearly the Singaporeans spend as much as S$8 billion a year on lottery. This is like donating about S$8 billion yearly to develop more resorts.
However, winning live draws may not always be a blessing that one has asked for his entire life. Sad to say, many stories have been told that winning instant cash may become your worst dream ever.
One of the winners of S$400,000 in one Singapore live draw is a warehouse supervisor. Not later than 6 months, nothing left of his entire sum. Without any doubt, surely this is caused by reckless spending on fancy clothes and jewelries, fancy meals on luxurious places and non-stop vacations.
In addition to this, you might not see yourself as a support but as a worst enemy. Having a lot of sum can give us the free will to help others and even the community, with the purpose of improving their lives. But yet, we may fail to set out limits on our expenses, compromising other needs that must be taken care of.
In addition to these, the worst problem is when bad people will come to threaten your life. But the worst of all is when you find out that those bad men have been your friends all those time.
With this large sum of money of yours, you could even lose more than just money. You might just want to enjoy it yourself, and have taken for granted the most important prize, your loved ones.
One of the most familiar gestures of a millionaire is giving donations. However, there is nothing negative about giving, but the downside hits you when you are not investing or saving any for a bank account, where you could receive an interest after many years.
In conclusion, would you agree that gaining a large sum after winning the lottery is a doom? I believe not everything about it. Finally, we could all agree that it’s based on the attitude and sound judgment of the Lucky Man in handling such prize.
