Why are less individuals playing the Daily Lotto?

The Daily Lotto jackpot amounts are low lately due to a small lottery turn out – but why is that?

Speculatively, there could be two reasons resulting from the 21-day nationwide lockdown:

Reason 1: Not everyone has access to online platforms in South Africa and so they will not be able to play the Daily Lotto as all physical shops have closed.

Reason 2: Individuals may be trying to save money instead of gambling it on the lotto due to the current downgraded status of the country’s economy.
