Except that would be a false statement. The rates aren't any different (apparently).
It's the case exactly because the rates are the same. meanining that with more pulls, you are more likely to get rares.
I also did some calculations based on assuming average recycle value of 7 gran, which makes sphere lotto a definite bad choice even for free starters. 6.5 or even down to 6 makes it possibly better for mono sphere alts or free players who are 100% sure they will never spend (though they should focus on ex packs instead), for whom this is only very marginally the better choice.
