      No, merely applying or entering the gc lottery does not affect your tourist status. If you win, then it is conceivable that this result might affect your non immigrant qualifications.
      But I think most of us hope that you are not planning to remain the US indefinitely to wait and see if you win, while perhaps working illegally or ??? during this time. Best to visit, return to wherever and if you win, be happy.

              Guest:

              Following is the excerpt of the state dept info regarding the DV lottery

              Applicants will be selected at random by computer from among all qualified entries. Those selected will be notified by mail between May and July 2003 and will be provided further instructions, including information on fees connected with immigration to the U.S. Persons not selected will NOT receive any notification. U.S. embassies and consulates will not be able to provide a list of successful applicants. Spouses and unmarried children of successful applicants under age 21 may also apply for visas to accompany or follow to join the principal applicant. DV-2004 visas will be issued between October 1, 2003 and September 30, 2004.
