Infrequent Lottery Players


If you’re not a frequent lottery player, you’re not alone. More than 186,000 lottery retailers sell tickets in the United States, with the most retailers in Texas, California and New York. Of these, nearly three-fourths offer online services. While most lottery retailers are convenience stores, you can also purchase tickets from nonprofit organizations, service stations, restaurants, bars and newsstands.

Infrequent players

Infrequent players in the lottery have lower chances of winning compared to frequent players. Their selections range from a small range to an extremely large range, and they often pick the same combination more than once. Infrequent players may also avoid the most recent draws. However, statistics can help them decide whether to play more or less frequently.
