If we are talking compulsive gambling, addictive games of chance and constantly 'going for gold', we are talking serious obsession with the adrenalin rush or the energy surge equivelant to mild electric shocks.
Not all of us have the money, opportunity or lifestyle in which we can venture everything in sport, business or other forms of high-powered experience. So perhaps a lottery ticket (and better still) a win on one , or on a scratch card, or a visit to the casino will serve roughly the same purpose.
The loss of choice or the chance for change often precedes the need to boost opportunity through seemingly random bouts of luck. Great leaps of the lower consciousness are achieved and a sense of temporary freedom through exultation. Very heady stuff! Akin to religious frenzy. In astrology the province of Jupiter, and Jupiter in aspect to Mars or Mercury somewhere in the chart.
