No-one’s ever disappointed when they win the lottery, and it doesn’t matter which lottery it is. There has to be an incentive for people to play, and if there’s just no great lump sum waiting for the winner to collect once the draw has been made, then no-one’s going to buy a ticket. So all lotteries have a sizeable sum of cash for the winners. But of course, some offer more than others -- in some cases, it’s a truly eye-watering amount. One mistake that some people make is that they always opt for the lotteries with big jackpots, even though this might not be the best option for them.
