Lottery System

Lottery-NPC.jpg To play the Lottery, speak to a Lottery Ticket Seller NPC in any major town.

Select 5 numbers between 1 and 20. The amount of numbers you choose that match the winning numbers determines what ranking and prize you win. The order of the numbers is not relevant.

Pay 2,000 Adena to purchase the ticket. Tickets can be purchased from 19:10 (server time) on Saturday to 18:50 (server time) on the following Saturday. The drawing occurs and the winning numbers are announced in server-wide system messages on Saturday at 19:00 (server time).

The price of your ticket (1,000,000 Adena) contributes to the growing jackpot, which is the total amount of Adena players have invested into the lottery system in one weekly cycle. The jackpot is divided into prize amounts according to how many numbers match between your chosen numbers and the winning numbers that are randomly chosen by the game system. The prize amount is divided equally among winners of the particular category. If only 2 numbers or less match between your numbers and the winning numbers, you receive 200 Adena.

If there are no winners for a particular category, that prize amount is transferred to the next week’s jackpot.

There is a minimum jackpot of 100,000,000 Adena. By design of the system, 50% of the ticket price goes to the server, so for the jackpot to rise over 100,000,000 Adena over 200 tickets must be sold.

Example:

If 1,063 tickets are sold during that week, the total jackpot is 531,500,000 Adena (after the 50% deduction from the total sales). Let’s see what the prize amounts from that jackpot would look like if there is 1 first place winner, 10 second place winners, and 50 third place winners:
