Will the Florida Lottery Ever Receive a Boost of International Players?
By Space Coast Daily // June 25, 2021
For most of its time, lottery gaming has been a local way of gambling, supporting charities and trying to win a life changing sum of money. This is still the case with many lotteries, and that includes some of the big names that we all know and love.
However, things are changing with lottery gaming, and players from elsewhere are being granted access to the lottery games that take place elsewhere. This means they are not playing on their local lottery, instead they are choosing which lottery to play from the many that are available around the world. This means those looking for online lottery in India can play games such as the Powerball and the Mega Millions draw.
Is this a sign of things to come, and will all lotteries soon be played by people who live on the other side of the world? Will we be able to choose which lottery we play, rather than simply sticking to the one that is our local lottery and helps people in our areas and countries?
Why Could Lottery Gaming Change?
The simple reason is that we are now far more connected than we have ever been before thanks to the internet. If you take the local Brevard County news for example, this is open and available for everyone around the world to read. In days gone by, what happened here stayed within the country, and perhaps to the neighbouring counties.
People can see what is happening elsewhere, and if it looks better then they want to be a part of it. This is happening across many different sectors, not just the gambling industry. Thanks to the internet, people can be connected with the other side of the world and participate in anything that is available and open for online players.
Should this happen then the games that are likely to draw the most attention are those which offer the biggest prizes. In America that is the Mega Millions and Powerball, while for those in America looking for something else, the Euro Millions lottery in Europe would certainly appeal, and has given out some huge jackpot prizes in the past.
Will All Lotteries Survive?
This is going to be key, and as we have just mentioned, it is those big lotteries with the huge jackpot prizes that will gain the biggest attention around the world. What does that mean for the smaller games, will these eventually have to close down as they do not have enough interest?
Hopefully not, because these offer a constant helping hand to charities in the local area, and for that reason alone we need to ensure they are kept going. This was initially one of the reasons why so many people turned to play the lottery in their region or country, to have a chance of winning, but also to help local charities.
Let’s hope for them, that local lottery gaming still exists, even if the bigger names start taking away some of their players.
