A TD says the current Lotto rollover only has precedents in Las Vegas or Monte Carlo.

Questions To Be Answered

"How long more will people continue to buy tickets if they don’t believe they have a fair chance of winning?"

“We have to get to the root of exactly what’s at play here."

"Are the 47 rollovers to date just pure chance, or are there flaws that need to be addressed?"
