Lottery Stimulus

In the wake of a number of failed economic stimulus plans, why not consider an unconventional but potentially very helpful stimulus alternative. Take the Iowa Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries for example: Why not instead of giving one person a prize worth 60 million dollars or 200 million dollars, give twelve people 5 million dollars or 40 people 5 million dollars? And if all of the States, or any of the States did this think how many more people could really be helped! (Not to mention how many more lottery tickets would be sold with the improved odds.)
