People who have won their million sometimes continue playing, but studies say that this isn't the case for all millionaires out there.

Here's what studies say about LOTTO players and their demographics.

LOTTO is played less by already rich' people, say studies According to research about lottery players, studies indicate that people are likely to play the LOTTO if they aren't traditionally rich' - and winners might stop playing after they've won a big enough jackpot to put in the bank.

Billionaires (like Elon Musk) might not be regular LOTTO players, and take their risks by doing things like renaming Twitter to X' to see what happens. They still appear to play games with odds, but in different ways.
