All American lotteries, specifications

I must say, that there are not many lottery projects in the USA - the two most famous ones with the possibility of a multi-million dollar win are Mega Millions and PowerBall. There are also several mini-lotteries and instant. Let's see, what are they.

3.1. Mega Millions Lottery

Minimum jackpot - 15 million dollars and it grows from circulation to circulation, if none of the players guesses the combination of numbers 5/75 and 1/15. It's hard enough to do it, the chances of winning the main prize are low, therefore, its amount can rise to several hundred million.

If you really want to play the American lottery, but not a US resident, the rate on your behalf will be paid by the local representative of the intermediary site.

Numbers are drawn using two lottery drums. Balls with numbers of the main draw are painted white and loaded into one lottery drum, and additional - in red (loaded into the second).

Ticket design, acquired in different states, may differ slightly.

3.2. Powerball lottery

The game scheme is somewhat reminiscent of Mega Millions: 5/69 (main draw) and 1/26 ( additional).

The chances of winning the top prize are negligible - 1 to 292 201 338, and to win any prize - 1 to 25 .

The jackpot in this lottery is never lower 40 million dollars and is constantly growing until that time, until somebody rips it off.

Yesterday's win (read at the beginning of the article), albeit dizzy, but not so big, as I was on one of the printings last year - 1, 56 billion dollars were won by three lucky people from different states.

Winnings over 600$ can only be obtained at the lottery office - this can be done for you by a representative of the intermediary company. And again I have to remind, that not all concierges are bona fide.

Jackpots are given to winners in two ways: as a lump sum and as an annuity (parts over several years). Small winnings await their owners for a year, and if after this time no one asked for them, prizes are donated to charities.

3.3. Mini lotteries

They differ from the standard ones in the frequency of draws and in the smaller number of numbers required for guessing. for example, in Florida Lucky Money the algorithm is as follows: 4/47 + 1/17. Суммы Джекпотов тоже, respectively, less, than in big lotteries.

Honestly, where can Russian players buy a ticket for the American lottery in mini format, I cant, since I have not met them on any of the intermediary sites.

3.4. American Instant Lotteries

These are scratches popular among Americans with colorful designs., non-selectable numbers. But even the most reliable intermediaries are unlikely to sell them to you online.. The American instant lottery requires the player to erase the protective field - simply "scratch" the surface of the paper ticket.

I told about this type of lottery for informational purposes.

Fraud and fraud

Lottery, like any other type of gambling, susceptible to fraud, despite the high degree of care, declared by the organizers. There are numerous lottery scams .

Some types of online prepaid scams are lottery-based. Scam starts with spam, Congratulations to the recipient on a recent lottery win. The email explains, that in order to free up funds, the recipient of the email must part with a certain amount (in the form of taxes / fees) according to the rules, otherwise there is a risk of confiscation.

Another form of fraud involves the sale of "systems", whose purpose – increase the player's chances of picking winning numbers in the lottery. These scams are usually based on a customer misunderstanding (maybe, and the seller) probability and random numbers. However, the sale of these systems or software is legal, since they mention, that the product cannot guarantee a win, not to mention the jackpot.

There have also been several cases, when cashiers in lottery shops tried to lure their winnings from customers. In some places, the buyer must hand over the lottery ticket to the cashier, to determine, how much did they win, or, if they won at all, the cashier then scans the ticket, to define one or both. In those cases, when the client does not see or hears a signal about the scan results, some cashiers took the opportunity to declare, that the ticket is a loser or that it costs much less, what he is, and offer to "throw it out". “or secretly replace it with another ticket. Then the cashier puts the ticket in his pocket and takes it as his.

In the BBC series "Real vanity" was the lottery variant is shown, in which a group of scammers pretended to be, what won the lottery, but they were prevented from taking the prize, since man, who wrote the name on the back of the ticket, presumably absent. countries on this day. They managed to convince a stranger to deposit money as collateral, to split the prize pool.

In some cases, the lottery itself has been compromised by fraudsters. 1980 Pennsylvania lottery scandal involved weighing balls in . In a fraud scandal Hot Lotto в random number generator Hot Lotto code has been added, allowing a cheater to predict winning numbers on certain days of the year.

IN 2003 year Canadian geological statistician Mohan Srivastava discovered non-random patterns in the tickets "tic-tac-toe", sold by the Lottery and Gaming Corporation of Ontario . Tic-tac-toe was taken off the shelves and became the first game, ever remembered by OLG.

Where and when did the lottery appear?

The appearance of the first tickets and the lottery are inextricably linked. There are many versions of the origin of the lottery. According to the assumptions of some scientists, the appearance of jokes is associated with ancient Greece., but most of the history of occurrence is associated with Ancient China or Rome. Approximately at 100 year BC, when the Han dynasty was in power, a lottery was held in China, like the current Keno game. As a result, huge funds were received, launched on the Great Wall of China. The ancient Roman rulers Nero and Augustus loved to arrange lotteries during the holidays., where slaves and property were played. There were also free lotteries for plebeians. Interesting is the appearance of the word "lottery". Linguists suggest its origin from the Frankish "hlot", ie. lot. In English, consider, what is the word "lot", ie. "Share". maybe, it was Italian lotto, what does fate mean. Indeed, in essence, this game depends a lot on luck, peculiar to individuals, either from an unexpected twist of fate.

The emergence of lotteries in Russia

During the reign of Peter the Great, watchmaker J. Gassenus organized a lottery for the first time, into the state established by her decree Catherine II in 1782 year. State lotteries were also drawn in 1892 and 1914 years. In the first case, the funds were sent to help victims of crop failure, во втором — от войны.
