If you’re a frequent lottery winner, you’ve probably heard the term “lottery fatigue” a few times. This is a common problem that happens when you play the lottery too often. But there’s another cause of jackpot fatigue that you may be unaware of. It is caused by the belief that past draws are predictive of future ones. Consequently, lottery enthusiasts often look for “hot” and “cold” numbers. In other words, they pick numbers that haven’t come up for a long time.
The Minnesota Lottery, founded in 1984, features a variety of local and multi-state games. Proceeds from the lottery are primarily used for public schools and colleges. Similarly, the Colorado Lottery, started in 1983, offers Powerball and Mega Millions as well as a few multi-state games. Profits from the lottery go to a state fund and the governor will allocate the funds accordingly. This is a great way to give back to the community and have fun at the same time.
