The company spends over 10 lotteries. From the end 2017 of the year, as determining the winners, most lotteries use special automatic lottery drums. You can follow the draw in real time, thanks to continuous online broadcast. Draws are held approximately once an hour or more.
Regarding automated lottery machines, their work is as follows:
- the operator of the lottery drum starts one or two machines at once;
- lottery drums start to work and randomly, balls are issued at regular intervals, which are marked with numbers;
- the dropped balls are shown to the participants.
Thanks to, that the lottery drums are made of plastic / glass, each participant in the literal sense of the word sees all the transparency of the drawing.
