International Lottery Day in The Villages FL

Lottery. Lotterie. Lotería. No matter what language, people around the world love lottery games! On International Lottery Day every August 27th, we’re all dreaming about euros, dollars, pounds and lire.

Why? Lottery-style games have gone mobile — so it’s easier than ever to play! That’s great news for the UK, where a study shows 83% of residents report purchasing scratch-off lottery tickets in the past year.

Today is the day where we all try our luck and you never know, a lifechanging sum of money could be on the horizon.

INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY DAY ACTIVITIES

    • Play as a group

Why not? Gaming’s great for socializing. On International Lottery Day, get your friends together and share the fun! Your biggest concern? How to split the big prizes. That’s a nice dilemma to have.

WHY WE LOVE INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY DAY

    • We like to dream big

After buying a lottery ticket it’s common to spend a little time daydreaming about ‘what if’. What would you do if you become a millionaire? As unlikely as it is, there’s no harm in letting your mind wander there for a couple of minutes.

    • We like the suspense

As you’re scratching the card or waiting for the numbers to be drawn there’s that moment of suspense that is full of childlike excitement.

    • The fun can be shared

Playing in a group means that it’s a great chance to share the fun with others. Win or lose you have something to look forward to.
