OUR ANSWERS

Hi Catherine,

Being on a lucky streak is great, but it has no impact whatsoever on your chances of winning the lottery. Lotteries are games in which only chance dictates the outcome. There is no way to predict or influence chance.

Isn’t it contradictory for Loto-Québec to launch a $100 scratch ticket while also stating that “A GAME SHOULD REMAIN A GAME”?

OUR ANSWERS

The cost of a lottery ticket or the amount of money one spends on lottery tickets is not in and of itself an indicator of a gambling problem. For example, someone might choose to organize a group purchase of a ticket, in turn reducing the cost per person. In addition, different people have different limits and risk factors. The most important thing for people to keep in mind is to never spend more than they can afford to lose. Only a portion of one’s entertainment budget should go to games of chance.

Have a nice day!
