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.
People from the neighborhood are once again agitated this season of the year. They would be going to their lucky outlets to bet on their lucky digits. Finally, the most awaited Singapore live draw has come, which has a jackpot prize of S$12 million. The people are becoming more agitated when the Singapore Pools are offering gaming packages, with the lowest price at S$10 and rises to a price of S$228. The highest package will give you a grand total of 10 more tickets.
Without any doubt, all of those who bought their tickets wants to be the millionaire 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. You could not imagine that winning the lottery might become your worst nightmare ever.
Let me take as an example the warehouse supervisor who won almost S$400,000 in the Singapore live draw, but after 6 months lost his entire money. This is surely because of uncontrolled spending. He might have spent them in luxurious meals, fancy clothes and goods and vacation getaways.
Another downside of having a large sum is that your self could become your worst enemy. Innately, when we have money, we gain the freedom and opportunity to extend help to those in need, especially our loved ones, or even our own community. 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. What could be more frustrating and dangerous than knowing that these men are people close to you.
Furthermore, do not wait to see that you are not just losing money in time, but also the love from your family and loved ones. Because of the luxurious life it might give you, temporarily, you might lose your family, forever.
Donating to charities, churches and organizations are very common act of a jackpot winner. But another disadvantage of this comes when you are only donating without saving any amount on the bank, where you can expect to grow in time.
To wrap up this reading, would you really agree that winning the lottery is not a blessing? Absolutely not. Finally, we could all agree that it’s based on the attitude and sound judgment of the Lucky Man in handling such prize.
