If I had a dollar for every lottery conspiracy theory floated on the Internet, I'd be richer than the biggest lottery winner of all time.
The lottery people don't care how many people win a jackpot. They still pay out the same amount. If you want to have a good conspiracy theory, consider this: Jackpots are only won about 1 in 9 drawings on average. This financially benefits the lottery because the payout of a 9 rollover jackpot costs them less than if there had been winners in each of the 9 drawings.
