Lottery drawn on Shabbos


Is it allowed to buy a lottery ticket during the week, when the actual draw will be on Shabbos?



I don’t see any problem with this, as the lottery is not being drawn because of you, and even if you do win, it is not considered to be Shabbos earnings, because you didn’t do anything to encourage it on Shabbos. On the other hand your mind should preferably not be occupied with the lottery, which is a business related on the Shabbos.
