Examining the 'Halo Effect' in lotto games

Kent Grote and Victor Matheson ()

Applied Economics Letters, 2007, vol. 14, issue 4, 307-310

Abstract: The 'Halo Effect' occurs when lotto ticket sales are unexpectedly high following a large jackpot. An examination of the Powerball lottery finds evidence that the halo effect exists and that it is the result of bettors exchanging prize winnings for new tickets.
