Haven't you ever wondered why people don't just advertise wonderful prizes for one dollar tickets and when they've sold enough to pay for the prize plus profit hold a drawing? It isn't because people are generally lazy or never thought of it.
It is illegal to opperate a for profit lottery in the U.S. where you collect money and hold a drawing. You can opperate a "free" advertisement sponsored lottery where people "pay" for their tickets by visiting sponsors. This idea was popular during the web boom but is pretty much a failed business model today except for the few who got it right and even then who knows what will happen if they have a winner, that person would be wise to aquire land based contact information for any game they are playing before winning.
