That's an excellent analogy with the ball parks and a raffle.
I've always looked at raffles this way, in a lottery game $1 or $2 wins millions, tens of millions, or 100 or hundreds of millions depending on the game and jackpot.
In a raffle, like your example of the NY one where a $10 ticket can win $1M, in essence every dollar wins $100,000. Not bad but as far a 'most bang for the buck' that's whoop tee do as compared to lotto jackpots.
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.
