Features of the drawing

Any, who at least once took part in this event, knows perfectly well, how to play the housing lottery. The rules prescribe to buy tickets one day before the date of the broadcast of the next draw. In this case, the drawing takes place live on any TV channel. At different times, the days of the week and the time of such broadcasts were subject to changes. There is nothing wrong with, that the person missed the live broadcast. You can find out the winning numbers on the official website or from other sources on the Internet.. Also worth noting, that repetitions of TV programs are practiced.

A special draw commission gives a welcome to the drawing, which pre-calculates the revenue from ticket sales. The amount received may affect the amount of cash prizes for all winning participants. Before removing the kegs from the bag or balls from the lottery drum, those are mechanically mixed for 15 seconds. The presenter calls from 86 to 88 values, depending on the type of specific circulation. However, then, how to play the housing lottery, does not change in any way, that is, there are well-established rules for all draws.

Potential risks

Let's add a fly in the ointment right away, talking about risks. The organizer always wins - this is the golden rule of any gambling. Moreover, of all fair gambling, the lottery is the most profitable for the company.

Another risk factor is a high probability of cheating.. This fact is not documented anywhere., however, there are many skeptics, who do not believe in the fairness of the drawing.

The main argument of all skeptics is that the draws are broadcast on tape, and the required results adjust, not showing it to the public. Sounds, as a conspiracy theory, however on the records 2259 and 2260 there are exactly the same position of balls at different time stamps, which is unlikely from any point of view.

What it is, we do not undertake to judge, but before playing, you must soberly weigh all the risks.

Chances of Winning

Any participant can win the lottery, who bought a ticket. The winnings range from several tens to millions of rubles.

Getting the jackpot depends on the number of combinations, that fall out during the game. The smaller the prize amount, the higher the chances of winning. The likelihood of predicting numbers in the lottery 5 numbers from 36 equals 1 to 376992, but 2 numbers - 1 to 8.

The payoff for the players is different and depends on the cost of tickets and the number of participants. If additional balls are added to the game, then the chances of winning are significantly reduced. According to mathematical statistics, all numbers in one coupon will not necessarily match. The winnings depend on the randomness and luck of the player. Thanks to mathematical calculations, the following conclusions were made:

  • no strategy of the game gives a guaranteed result;
  • learn numbers, which will fall out - impossible;
  • before the lottery, the players have the same chances;
  • in lotteries, in which the player crosses out the numbers himself, chances of winning in 6 times more.

Known proven lotteries win more often, than in new.
