The Global Lottery Market – A Market Overview
Typically, lotteries are run by state or city governments and involve paying a relatively small amount of money for a chance to win a prize. The proceeds from the lottery are generally set aside for governmental programs. Various countries have active lottery programs.
In 2012, the global lottery market generated $71 billion, with North America leading the pack. Asia Pacific is projected to register a growth rate of 9.1% over the forecast period. In terms of revenue, China is expected to surpass the United States by 2015. In Europe, there are more national lotteries than previous sections. These include Croatia, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, and Bulgaria.
There are three primary types of games in the lottery: lotto, Keno, and scratch off tickets. The first two types of lotteries offer jackpots ranging from several thousand dollars to millions of dollars. The third type offers a single prize and is usually played for a few hours.

Despite the growing popularity of the lottery, stringent government regulations and the closure of non-essential activities have hampered the growth of the lottery market. These regulations have also affected the personal and professional lives of individuals. However, with the rise in smartphone penetration and digital equipment, the lottery business is expected to grow significantly. The increasing use of Blockchain technology in lottery platforms is also expected to provide profitable opportunities.
A recent study indicates that people are more likely to be influenced by cognitive biases than by rational thought. This is a strong reason for the popularity of lottery games. In 205 BC, Chinese players played a game called Keno. During this time, funds from the game were used to build the Great Wall. Today, Keno is still played in many countries.
Although lotteries have been around for centuries, the structure of the lottery has not changed much. This is because the long-term impact of winning a lottery is relatively insignificant. The game exploits the cognitive biases of human beings. This leads to irrational behavior.
In 2012, the lottery industry in China grew by $43 billion. The government wants to bolster this sector with a more centralized system, so the market can be more stable. In 2014, Beijing is expected to announce a new set of rules to regulate lottery.
