Any where online lottery?

Yes, there are several online lotteries. You need to be careful though; this is an area where it is VERY easy to set up a scam. Look for outside sources (i.e., it is NOT enough, for example, to just follow links in an advertisement you get!), and check the reputation of the betting site. Please note that in any case, betting in general, in lotteries and the like, is NOT a good investment. On average, you'll lose more than you win.

Do people actually win the lottery?

Yes, they do. Some lotteries are actually scams; but there are also many legitimate lotteries. That being said, betting in lotteries and the like is NOT a good investment, since on average, you'll lose more money than you win.

Do you win anything when you have only one number?

Not enough information. You need to specify what lottery, or whatever, you are talking about.

What is a good question to put at the end of a debate for gambling?

User Avatar
You'll NEVER "put an end" to a debate about gambling; or for that matter, to ANY debate. That being said, a relevant question or issue might be about the mathematical expectation - a term which I encourage you to look up, if you are not familiar with it. Governments, or gambling houses, organize lotteries, etc. for a profit - and since they don't generate any ADDITIONAL money, but only redistribute existing money, it stands to reason that the clients will lose, on average. That is, their mathematical expectation (average earnings, minus the price of the ticket) is negative.
