16. Lottery Winnings Limit

Individuals should not be allowed to win more than $1,000,000 at a time through a lottery. Lotteries should be designed so that either more people win and split the jackpot evenly or so that more successively placed winners (2nd, 3rd, etc.) are chosen to share in the winnings. More winners could be made by any number of ways, including reducing the number of digits that players would need to pick and dividing the jackpot evenly among all these winners, or by increasing the number of digits players need to pick and then choosing the several people who came closest to the final number and declaring them winners.
