Yes. It will affect your chances.

Visa officers will reject B1/B2 applicants at the moment they suspect they have immigration intentions.

If you get a Diversity visa you won't be allowed to go for B1/B2 visa. This happened with me. I was accepted for green card but I wanted to go earlier on B1 but they rejected my application.

I'm wondering the same! What if I apply for a DV and don't get one... And like a year after that, will it affect a visa application?

Also, what are the chances to get a DV? Does anyone know?

OMG! Are you serious Sabio? Even applying for the DV Lottery keeps you from getting a visitor's visa??!!!! How true is that? How do they find out ?!

Can you please explain your experience more elaborately, Sabio.
