Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot and Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot are raffle-type games, which means that there are a set number of tickets in each draw. As each ticket number is unique, there is no price sharing.
Each game has two draws – one that determines the winning numbers and one that determines the jackpot number. If the jackpot number matches one of the winning numbers, the jackpot prize is won. If the jackpot number does not match one of the winning numbers, the jackpot prize will increase for the next draw.
Tickets can be purchased at any authorized lottery outlet, online at thelott.com or via The Lott mobile app.
