TOPIC: Lotteries should be banned. <ul><li>I am for the idea that lotteries should be banned. Firstly, in my opinion, lotteries are a waste of money. Every time we buy a lottery ticket, we have less money to buy things we need such as food or medicine. In addition, I think playing the lottery is very addictive. When we buy a lottery ticket, but do not win, we may want to buy more and more tickets. Finally, in my point of view, lotteries are not really a good chance to make money. We cannot use our skills or abilities to win. To sum up, for these reasons, I believe that banning lotteries is a good idea. </li></ul></li> <li> 31. </li> </ul>
