Rumor has it that The Melate lottery is petty cash for the mexican government.
They use the money to finance political campaigns.
A melate ticket is more expensive than a mega million or powerball ticket.
Despite being a national Lottery, the jackpots are so low. The highest jackpot is about 10 million dollars (which is rare)
Maybe the only advantage is that they give the jackpot in a lump sum taking away 21% for taxes.
