I'm not sure how the process of SOL printing and distribution work but I feel like it may not be fair to all participants. For e.g. let's say there is a lottery with 4 X 1 million dollar prizes and you enter the fray when top 3 prizes had been already taken as opposed when there were 4 unclaimed prizes i.e. when the game began. Do you think odds of winning still apply whether 1 top prize left or 4 top prize left? Does lottery spread top prizes across the distribution or it is randomly mixed?
Do you have better odds if you played at the start of the game rather than towards the end of the game? or it is completely random event making it similar to draw lottery and there is no advantage or disadvantage to when you play the game.
I'm thinking playing before any of the top prizes get claimed would dramatically improve your relative odds. What do you say?
