Did you know there are strange lotteries that take place around the world? As opposed to your traditional lotteries where you can win payouts, these lotteries have crazy prizes as their jackpots or a unique aspect to them.
BACON SCENTED LOTTERY TICKETS
One would swear Homer Simpson came up with this whole idea. This brings a whole new meaning to bringing home the bacon. The Indiana State Lottery came up with the out-of-the-box idea. The ScratchCard game releases the delightful aroma of bacon when a player scratches the card.
RARE BEER LOTTERY
Premium beer is brewed in limited batches. Getting your hands on it can become such an impossible mission. Citra Double IPA from Kern River brewery in California is one of the rarest beers in the world and because of that, the creators decided to create a beer lottery.
SPEED CAMERA LOTTERY
In Stockholm, Sweden, they take safe driving very seriously. Street cameras take pictures of the license plates of all drivers. Good news for the drivers that obey the rules, they qualify for the chance to win a portion of the money amassed from speeding fines. This lottery has multiple interesting benefits such as rewarding safe driving and reducing irresponsible driving.
The lottery takes place in the USA, with only 55,000 green cards available per year, making the lottery quite competitive. This gives people from other countries an opportunity to win a chance to apply for permanent citizenship.
There are many more unusual lotteries out there, and their popularity is based on how desirable the prize is.
At the end of the day, cash will always be king.
