Abstract

La mayoría de juegos lotto son operados por monopolios estatales en todo el mundo como una fuente alternativa de ingresos. Así, los estudios sobre la demanda en este ámbito han tratado de evaluar si la elasticidad precio estimada es consistente con la maximización de los ingresos (netos de premios). En este trabajo se emplean datos a nivel de sorteo para estimar la elasticidad precio de la demanda de diferentes juegos lotto ofrecidos en España. Los resultados obtenidos indican que estos juegos son operados en la zona inelástica de la demanda sugiriendo, entre otros, la posibilidad de incrementar el (atípicamente bajo) porcentaje de la recaudación no destinado a premios como estimulante de unos mayores ingresos por ventas. El posible impacto del popular sorteo de Navidad de la Lotería Nacional así como la posible estacionalidad de la demanda de juegos lotto son también analizados.
