On the disclosure of ticket sales in charitable lotteries

Damian Damianov () and Ronald Peeters ()

Economics Letters, 2017, vol. 150, issue C, 73-76

Abstract: We show that a policy of disclosing the ticket sales during a fundraising lottery raises total revenue when there are more than two bettors. The optimal timing of the disclosure is when about half of the players have purchased lottery tickets.
