How to Play

Follow our walkthrough on how to participate in the Friendly Lottery.

Deciding to enter a round

‌Not all Lottery rounds are equal. When a lottery jackpot isn't won, the next round's prize pool will increase; the longer it's been since someone has won the jackpot, the larger the Lottery prize pool will be.
‌The longer a round is open, more people can buy a ticket. Each ticket sold increases the prize pool further. Here's how to check the current round's prize pool and remaining time.
‌1. Visit the Friendly Lottery page and look at the top of the page. You will see the current round's prize pool shown in current (estimated) US dollar value. This is the amount to be shared between all winners.
Current round pot size
‌2. A little lower down the page you'll find the remaining time before the current round is drawn.
Current round remaining time
There are two draws every day, one every 12 hours
Remember, a lot can change in the remaining time. Many more tickets may be sold. Each ticket sold increases the prize pool and lowers the odds of an individual ticket winning.
‌If you're unsure, you can always wait until later into the round to decide with more information. Just don't wait too long and miss out!
Attempts to purchase tickets within the last minute may result in a failed transaction if the time ends while Casper Network is still processing the transaction. This is due to the Casper Network block finality time of 32.7 seconds.
