One of the most popular home board games is lotto. Lotto rules, like the game itself, are familiar to most people. Its most widespread variety is “Russian Lotto”, in which miniature barrels smell so deliciously of wood.
The rules of the game of lotto are very simple: a player receives from 1 to 3 cards, each of which is a table with three rows and nine columns. The number of digits on the card is 15: five random digits in each row. In order to remember how to play Russian lotto, you do not need much time. You need to know that there are three main options for the game: short, regular, or long, and "three by three." With the first option, the person who, following the rules of the lotto game, wins the line of any card faster than anyone else wins. In a regular game, the winner is the participant who filled all the cards faster than the rest. "Three by three" - the most gambling version of the game. Before the start of the game, all participants make bets. Lottery “money” can be cookies, buttons or peas.
The rules for playing the lotto with this method are as follows: when one of the players fills the top line of one of his cards completely, everyone except him doubles the bets that were made before the start of the game. The one who fills the two lines the fastest gets a third of the win. The rest of the money equivalent of cookies or peas goes to the participant who filled out the entire card first.
A similar game, to participate in which you need to spend money, is the Ukrainian television game - Lotto Fun. The purchase of a ticket of this lottery gives a chance to win not only cash prizes, but also a car or an apartment. Here, in order to win, you need to know how to play Lotto Fun. Firstly, the purchased ticket, consisting of three fields of five rows and five columns each, must be left until the end of the draw.
To win the Jackpot, it is necessary to cross out all the numbers of the first three lines of any field of the ticket: the number of crossed out numbers must be equal to the number of balls dropped out of the lottery drum. If three lines are found that are crossed out of order in the ticket, the ticket is also considered winning.
In order to win this lottery, one of five conditions must be met:
1. The numbers of three horizontal lines must be crossed out, with as many steps as the barrels dropped from the lottery drum, and one free cell with the MSL symbol is taken into account;
2. Almost the same as in the first paragraph, but the presence of two cells with the symbol MSL;
3. filled two horizontal lines of one field and one line of another field;
4. The ticket wins, in any field of which one horizontal line is filled. In this case, the number of numbers is equal to the number of barrels dropped;
5. coincidence of two horizontal lines one by one in any field of the ticket.
These are the most likely combinations to win. Sometimes the founders of the lottery introduce additional options for winning. You should be careful and, most importantly, believe in luck.
