That would probably be impossible to get an accurate number on.
Some people play $1 a drawing, some play $100.
I don't see how it could be narrowed down any further than which store sold how many tickets.
Granted, there are surveillance cameras, but maybe the person playing $100 is playing for a number of people, and unless they hit the jackpot that number would be unknown.
Kind of like saying the Dodgers drew 3,000,000 attendance last year, but how many people bought tickets?
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
