Additional ball and other innovations

IN 1977 year, (from 37 circulation) in order to increase the popularity of the lottery "6 out of 49", an additional bonus ball has been drawn in it, increased the likelihood of winning the lottery. In August 1978 all numerical lotteries were transferred to non-redemption cards. The maximum winnings have been increased from 5 000 to 10 000 rubles. Draws of lotteries "6 out of 49" and "5 out of 36" (former "Saturday Sports Lottery") began to be held every Saturday, the drawing was held using a pneumotron.

In January 1981 there was another change in the conditions of the game, whose goal is to make it more fun, offer members more options for filling tickets. The "Sportloto" circulation was not carried out out of four, and from two draws: one for "6 of 49", another for "5 out of 36".

Round the world voyage

Alexander Kazarinov chose a trip, and made the right decision! Voyage, started at the Moscow airport, lasted 71 day, кругосветку активно освещали многие советские газеты и журналы.

По итогам поездки победитель опубликовал в рыбинской газете “Рабочий и пахарь” свои мемуары:

“Osoaviakhim took off my old trousers and shirt, giving me a new European suit, then they put me on a plane of the German company "Derulyuft", and already in Konigsberg an interpreter was assigned to me ".

He didn’t like Koenigsberg, Too cramped and old!». But Berlin and especially the German match factory made an indelible impression on the accountant from Rybinsk: “This is a factory! There is complete order inside the workshops, new equipment, cars, packing delighted me!».

In Paris, Kazarinov was in the same group with two American women: “One is the wife of a millionaire banker, and the other - a major engineer ... When they found out, that I'm from Russia, American women have veins with fear, should be, shook ".

From Europe, on the motor ship "Albert Ballive" Kazarinov sailed to America. US immigration authorities initially did not allow him to land in New York. He was detained aboard a motor ship and placed in a barracks for illegal migrants on Ellis Island.

After several hours in a cell and interrogation by the authorities, interested in, is Kazarinov going to overthrow the US government, the traveler has received permission to enter the country.

“Tell your comrades in the USSR, that i feel great,- Kazarinov asked the TASS correspondent in New York. "Traveling gives me great pleasure.". By the way, to your next destination - Chicago, Alexander went by train in a first class carriage, like a real millionaire. It was compensation from the Americans for the inconvenience caused..

California became the final destination in the USA, from where the ocean liner delivered it to the Japanese port of Yokohama.

“Many spies met us at the pier. And one in civilian clothes even asked in Russian: "You are the one, who won the trip from the Bolsheviks? I suppose, happy, what finally broke out!». And I answered him with a fig: "It is for you!».

A trip around the world has become fateful for a simple bookkeeper. After returning to his homeland, Kazarinov moved from Rybinsk to Moscow, where he became a staff lecturer at Osoaviakhim. Now he began to travel around Russia - he traveled to cities with stories about life abroad..

Money instead of a trip

Not all winners chose travel as a prize. There were those, who preferred to take the winnings in money. One of them is an unknown resident of Samara, on the ticket of which the flight on the route Moscow - Paris - Moscow fell.

The winner who won the trip on the route Moscow - Paris - Moscow decided to get it in money

Ticket owner, refused to give his last name, received the cost of the flight - 1 425 rubles. The note also mentions three smaller winning tickets (circular flights over cities), true, and in these cases the winners decided to take money.

Dream of flying

Another interesting case is associated with one of the issues of the Osoaviakhim lottery, when choosing a win (flight by plane) literally determined the fate

"Sergey Anokhin, born in 1910 year, after graduating from seven-year school, he worked as a tracklayer on the railway. The path to heaven began with a lucky chance: at the end of the 20s of the last century, Sergei's older brother won skis in the Osoaviakhim lottery and asked his brother to pick them up at the committee of this organization. When the next day Sergey came there, it turned out, that there is another option for the lottery prize - flight (as a passenger) on a light plane over Moscow. Without hesitation, Sergey exchanged the won skis for him. This is how he first lifted off the ground.

Returning from flight, Sergey understood: to fly is his calling. As the writer Yaroslav Golovanov later put it, “This is how the biggest prize in the history of all our lotteries took place: Soviet aviation won Sergei Anokhin ".

Results of the first draw

All income, from the lottery, entered the USSR Defense and Aviation-Chemical Construction Fund. On funds, received by the Society, produced 35 combat aircraft and 30 tanks MS-1

The lottery's success was so obvious, that soon the second edition was carried out, it took place in may 1928 in Kharkov. Total passed 15 circulations of Osoviahim, the last one took place in 1941 year. During this time, the state budget received more than 800 million rubles.

After the war, the lottery continued on almost the same principles., but under a different name, ее проводит преемник Осоавиахиама — общество «ДОСААФ»
