Hi in my story plan I was going to have a character win the lottery, but I'm fairly sure there is no lottery in America. So my question, obviously, is do they? If so how big is the prize money normally and does it roll over? P.S. If you don't have a lottery it is where you buy a lottery ticket, select a few numbers out of a hundred. Then on the Saturday of that week numbers are selected at random and if your numbers matched then you would get however much money. Normally the prize money is a million pounds, but it has been known to reach around £120 million if it rolls over e.g. no one wins so the prize money is carried forward a week.
