Gambling is a really severe addiction with very serious consequences for the social environment of the victim.
The costs to society are much higher than the possible revenue towards a national social welfare fund may ever be.
It is most debatable whether there is something like ‘responsible gaming’. Some years ago a number of church leaders issued a firm public warning requesting the ban of any gaming or gambling.
Allow me to ask at least for the most stringent conditions to any public permission of a lottery! Especially schemes of a revolving nature (e.g. weekly, bi-weekly) should be examined most carefully.
In addition it should be possible to exclude persons with a history of addiction. Hoping on your understanding for the seriousness of the matter.
