Waiting for a billion
On New Year's Eve, it will most likely happen like this, how was it last year. Nobody will get a billion, а накопленный джекпот распределится между победителями. Yes, the total prize pool is likely to be over a billion. But, even a billion, if divided into several million participants, it turns into penny winnings
Lottery "Russian Lotto" is one of our most unprofitable lotteries. On the odds of a jackpot (1 of 295 232 118) она лидер сложности, на уровне американских PowerBall и MegaMillions. At the same time, most of the prize fund is spent on completely insignificant prizes., which many do not even take. It is pointless to spend money on it, большинство участников, even playing for years, never get more 200-300 rubles.
Meanwhile, in terms of turnover "Russian Lotto" is now in the lead. Several factors contribute to this - lack of competition, advertising power, the race for the ghost billion and then, that players do not know their chances of winning and do not analyze, how the prize pool is distributed
As a matter of fact, by the ratio of the cost of the game / возможная отдача все российские лотереи давно стали совершенно не интересными. What to do, for those who understand this? Only play there, где существуют более вменяемые лотереи. Good, if desired, all this is quite possible.
UPD. Stoloto's press service reported, that the prize fund of the New Year's circulation exceeded 2 billion rubles. This is a record figure for our lotteries. Meanwhile, despite the increase in the amount of fees, the number of large prizes does not seem to change, все так же фигурируют 50 country houses. Принудительный розыгрыш Джекпота (161 million), will happen too. Nevertheless, судя по этим данным — большая часть призового фонда как обычно будет распределена на мелкие выигрыши.
