How Can We Play Lottery in Indonesia

Because most Indonesians are Muslims and the country is relatively pious, Indonesian gambling regulations prohibit residents from participating in any local lottery games. There used to be an official legal lottery game run by the Indonesian government played by millions of Indonesians every week. Still, it raised many questions and problems because of religious issues, and ultra-religious people in the government and state pushed new legislation that eventually banned it.

The proponents of the prohibition claimed that impoverished people spent too much money on lottery tickets. However, this claim was not supported by data or data and was merely used as an excuse to outlaw the lottery game. In Indonesia, most people live comfortably, and even the impoverished have opportunities to earn money and create a living if they so desire. Even though the lottery is not their only means of improving their quality of life and simply buying tickets for pleasure once in a while, hyper-religious individuals could have the local lotto game banned.

Some people who wished to stop the lottery game claimed that it should be prevented since all of the money and income from the lottery went to the president of Indonesia at the time. However, it was most likely based on rumours and excuses rather than facts. In Indonesia, there are gangs and mafioso groups that offer illicit gambling parties where the house always wins since the games are not played honestly. However, natives in Indonesia rarely fall for such ruses, and most of the victims of these gangs are tourists.
