Why do lottery winners often come from small towns?

Why is it that most winning lottery tickets seem to be sold at small mom and pop stores in small towns as opposed to chain stores in larger cities?

I'm thinking this may have to do with the ratio of tickets sold at these small stores in small towns full of hopeful people.
