According to The Alternative Press, lottery officials have predicted a trend that lotto players are waiting to buy tickets when there’s a higher jackpot payout. Do you think it’s true? Read on to find out more.
In an article from Yahoo.com, many lotto players were quoted saying that they waited for the big jackpots to purchase lotto tickets. For example, Megan Graham, a convenience store worker, recently purchased a copious amount of lotto tickets because in recent months since there’s been quite the number of big jackpots: “The more it keeps increasing, that means nobody is winning … a lot of people are gonna keep buying tickets and tickets and tickets and you never know, you just might get lucky if you pick the right numbers”(Yahoo News). Although we don’t know definitely, it seems like lotto players are waiting till there are big jackpots or consistently playing.
Recently, lotto officials realized that smaller jackpots weren’t creating as much excitement has they had in previous years. Chuck Strutt, the executive director of the Multi-State Lottery Association states that he definitely feels that we “suffer from jackpot fatigue”, adding, “[he remembers] when a $10 million jackpot in Illinois brought long lines and people from surrounding states to play that game”(Yahoo News).
