The Lottery’s advertising campaign fostered an atmosphere of fun and community among its target audience, appealing to everyday New Yorkers with commercials that featured them imagining how they’d spend a million dollars while the lively pop song “If I Had a Million Dollars” played in the background – these spots proved especially successful at shifting focus away from grandiose fantasies to more realistic aspirations for winners of its jackpot prizes.

In the 1990s, New York Lotto launched Lucky Day as an innovative alternative to its jackpot-driven games; this innovative variation gave one top prize winner a choice between receiving either cash or shares in its underlying assets – such as timeshares – as prizes. This marked an important change from past lottery offerings that had relied heavily on jackpot-driven winnings; large jackpots had provided an important draw and driven ticket sales. Over time however, jackpots decreased and sales began declining further behind other state lotteries.
