4 Misconceptions About the Lottery

Thousands of Alaskans love to play with Lotto Alaska, a statewide lottery with big payouts and an even bigger impact on the local community. However, despite its popularity, there are several common misconceptions surrounding the lottery that can prevent players from making informed decisions. Today, we’re here to dispel these myths and help you feel confident about purchasing a ticket!

Misconception 1: The Lottery Is Rigged

Many people believe that the lottery is rigged; that somehow the lottery is fixed in favor of certain players. However, this simply isn’t true. Lotto Alaska features completely random drawings that provide the same odds to everyone, a fact that’s assured under our Charitable Gaming License issued by the State of Alaska. Just keep in mind that your probability of winning can vary depending on the number of players and the number of tickets you buy.

Misconception 2: Only Frequent Players Win

This is another popular misconception that fails the truth test. In reality, you don’t need to be a regular player to win the lottery — some of the biggest lottery winners have been one-time players! That being said, playing more often will indeed increase your odds of winning. Plus, every ticket purchased from Lotto Alaska will help us support local nonprofit organizations, giving you all the more reason to play!

Misconception 3: You Have To Be Lucky To Win

While luck certainly plays a role in winning the lottery, it’s not the only factor. Many past lottery winners have attributed their success to using a strategy or having a system that increases their chances of winning. If you’d like to improve your odds, check out our blog for tips and tricks!

Misconception 4: The Lottery Is Impossible To Win

While the odds may seem stacked against you, the only time you have zero chance of winning is when you don’t play at all. One ticket from Lotto Alaska is just $2, and the jackpot is guaranteed to be $100,000 minimum! This makes it worth a shot if you’re looking for an entertaining and exciting way to contribute to Alaska’s community.

These misconceptions are just a few of many, so it’s important to be knowledgeable about the facts of playing the lottery. At Lotto Alaska, we’re happy to provide you with any information regarding our statewide lottery and our latest games, so feel free to contact us with any questions!
