How does the lottery jackpot work?
The lottery jackpot works by people purchasing lottery tickets that are assigned a certain amount of numbers. These numbers will be the entries in the lottery draw. The amount of the jackpot depends on the total number of tickets that are purchased for the draw.
Generally, the more tickets that are purchased, the bigger the jackpot prize.
The draw is conducted by a lottery authority who draws the entries from a random selection of tickets purchased. The numbers that are drawn are the ‘winning numbers’ and will determine who receives the prize money.
The prize money is usually split among the winners based on the amount of money that each winner holds in the form of tickets.
The jackpot keeps rolling over until it is won. If no winning tickets are drawn, the prize money is ‘rolled over’ and added to the next draw. This helps to increase the size of the jackpot and increase the potential prize money available.
The longest recorded jackpot win was in 2018, where the prize money was over $1. 5 billion US dollars.
Overall, the lottery jackpot works by people purchasing tickets and entering drawn entries into the random lottery draw. The amount of the jackpot depends on how many tickets are purchased and the winner is determined by the numbers that are drawn.
When no tickets are successfully matched with the winning numbers, the prize money ‘rolls over’ and increases the size of the jackpot for the next draw.
