The analytical results can provide suggestions to the Taipei Bank on ways to improve lottery sales. The empirical findings of investigation include: (1) no significant substitutive or complementary relationships exist between Big Lotto and Lotto in Taiwan (2) the effective price elasticity of Big Lotto is -0.145, Taipei Bank can increase the revenue gained from Big Lotto by increasing the effective price.
