How to win:

To win the lottery jackpot (50% of the entire lottery pool), users need to match all 4 numbers on their tickets in the same position as the 4 winning numbers.

If you donโ€™t match all 4, no need to worry. As long as you match 2 or more numbers in the correct position, you are guaranteed to win a reward.

Winning Ratio:

  • Match all 4 numbers in the exact order = win 50% of the pot (or split the pot if more than 1 winner).

  • Match 3 numbers in the exact order = win or split 20% of the pot.

  • Match 2 numbers in the exact order = win or split 10% of the pot.

  • Burn the remaining 20% of the pot.

Please note - in the event that no participants were able to match 3 numbers on any draw, the 20% allocated to winners will then be burned accordingly.

For example, if the final 4 winning numbers are โ€œ9-7-3-8โ€:

  • โ€œ2-3-9-1โ€ = match 0

  • โ€œ9-7-3-8โ€ = match all 4

  • โ€œ9-7-3-2โ€ = match 3

  • โ€œ2-7-3-8โ€ = match 3

  • โ€œ2-3-3-8โ€ = match 2

  • โ€œ1-7-1-8โ€ = match 2

How are ticket numbers drawn?

The lottery aims to be completely random. Even though the ticket numbers given out are determined by a front-end logic, there is an extremely low chance that anyone is able to determine the 4 winning numbers ahead of time.

  • The 1st lottery number will be determined based on the %10 remainder of a hash encoded by the blockhash and the number of participating users at the entry deadline.

  • The 2nd lottery number will be determined based on the %10 remainder of a hash encoded by the blockhash and the total pooled brew balance at the entry deadline.

  • The 3rd lottery number will be determined based on the %10 remainder of a hash encoded by the blockhash and the timestamp of the last lottery participant at the entry deadline.

  • The 4th lottery number will be determined based on the %10 remainder of a hash encoded by the blockhash and the block difficulty at the entry deadline.
