Launches the Newest Lottery in Brazil: Lucky Day
The bettor chooses seven
numbers from a universe of 31 and still the month of luck. Four numbers drawn
already guarantee prize
BRAZIL (May 15, 2018) -- Gamblers of
lottery games now have one more chance to win prizes with the new lottery mode.
CAIXA launched on May 14 the Day of Luck . The player has the option to choose
seven numbers from the 31 available ones and still a month of the year. The
idea is to bet on dates, so the 31 days of the month, and the months of the
year, which will be represented by balls with numbers from one to 12.
"When we think about the product,
we think about moving the imagination of the Brazilian, who likes a lot of game
and always tries to make the relationship with commemorative dates and
important and dear days," explained the national superintendent of
Lotteries of the CAIXA, Gilson Braga. According to him, the renewal of the
product portfolio is always thought by the team. "We have detected that
within our lotteries we needed to make a renewal. We always want to bring news
to our bettor," he added.
The minimum bet is seven numbers,
but the player can score up to 15 "lucky days" in a single game. This increases
the chances of winning, as well as the value of the bet, whose minimum price is
$ 2. "This allows you to have games accumulated with the various
combinations," said the superintendent.
Each wheel has three games
available. You can also bet on a jackpot. "You can get a quote from friends
or even buy bucks made and available by lottery entrepreneurs, which increases
the chances of winning with a little less appeal," said Gilson Braga.
"This will be our lottery more
easily for people to win. It will not be high prizes, but intermediate values
that can help in the day to day," explained the CAIXA superintendent.
The prize pool will be divided into
five tracks. Those who hit four and five numbers drawn will receive the fixed
prize in the amount of R $ 4 and R $ 20, respectively. The hit of six numbers
gives the player the value of 30% of the apportionment and the seven numbers of
70%. It will also be awarded who will hit the month drawn. In this case the
value is fixed of R $ 2.
"The main prize should reach the
house of R $ 300 thousand", calculates Gilson Braga. "This will depend a
lot, as with other lotteries, accumulated eventualities can increase the amount
of the prize," he says.
With the bet of the seven numbers,
the probability of the player winning the main prize is one in 2,629,575. In
the case of the second prize, the odds are one in 15,652. In the third and
fourth prize categories, the statistic is one in 453 and one in 37. In the case
of the month of the year, the possibility of gain is as high as one by 12.
These chances increase according to the number of bets.
Sweepstakes and raffle
The raffles will be held three times
a week: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. "Exceptionally in this first week
of launch, the first lottery will take place on Saturday, May 19, during the
CAIXA Feirão of the Own House in Goiânia, so people will have five
days a week to get to know and bet on the new lottery, said the
From the week of May 20, the numbers
will be drawn in the Lucky Truck, along with the other lottery games CAIXA.
The collection follows the same
distribution as the other lotteries. "We have a regulation," said the
CAIXA superintendent. "The values derived from the collection of on lending
of these products go to safety, sports, health and safety."
"I found the proposal very
interesting. It reminds us of special dates"
The filmmaker Luiz Rogério
Teixeira Quintão, 51, found the proposal of the new lottery game very
interesting. "It reminds us of special dates and dialogues with our personal
side. For me it's approved, next week I'll be playing."
The resident of Brasília, who
plays Lotofácil and Mega-Sena every week, has already hit Quina. "I
do not remember the value. It was the only time I won," he said.
Asked what he would do if he won the
main prize for Lucky Day, he replied that he would build a temple for the
devotees of Hare Krishna in Brasilia. "I would become a simpler person. I am
a Buddhist," he said.
The cashier, Simone Oliveira Vieira,
said she would bet on special and commemorative dates.
"The month will be my birthday
and the dates will diversify into special dates." The resident of
São Sebastião, administrative region of the Federal District,
plays in Mega-Sena and Quina and has already won $ 10 in a bet on Quina.

Lottery Finishes Up First Round of Responsible Gambling Training for
By Patrick Johnson (Oregon
SALEM, Oregon (May 9, 2018) -- More
than 6,000 Oregon Lottery retailer employees around the state have been trained
on how to help Lottery players gamble responsibly.
Last year, the Oregon Lottery
launched a training module entitled Responsible Gambling & You. To date, a
total of 3,903 Traditional and Video Lottery retail locations have completed
the program 99-percent of all Oregon Lottery retailers.
Recognizing the challenges
associated with training frontline retail staff, the Lottery developed a
simple, short and tailored program that could easily be taken on any mobile
device or desktop computer. The training is not intended for employees to
counsel people, but is designed to point them to resources for help. This
training also helps direct family, friends and other loved ones to finding the
assistance they may need.
As part of a focused
training effort, the Oregon Lottery invested in the development of online
training programs that were designed specifically for bar, tavern, restaurant
and deli-style retailers that carry Video Lottery products such as line &
poker games. Training was also developed for our retailers who carry
Lottery traditional products such as Scratch-it tickets and draw
games like Keno, Powerball & Oregons Game Megabucks among
others, said Krystal Smith, Associate Program Manager, Oregon
As part of our commitment
to the state of Oregon, the Lottery recognizes that we have a shared
responsibility with our retailers for the promotion of responsible gambling
practices, said Stacy Shaw, Senior Manager Product Marketing for the
Oregon Lottery. We are dedicated to ensuring that players and their
families have the information they need to make informed choices about gambling
as well as direct access to help that is free, confidential and
effective. It is also part of our commitment that we provide ongoing
education and training to our retailers and their staff regarding responsible
With that commitment in mind, Oregon
Lottery retailers were asked to have their staff take the responsible gambling
training program. The training assists employees with skills to point players
to resources to get help. One percent of Oregon Lottery proceeds are directed
at funding programs that assist people who have gambling related issues. More
than $92 million has been directed to these programs.
Lottery Corporate Accounts Manager
Debbie Jahn, said that the retailer training has been well received.
Several retailers have
commented about how the training is helping their customer service
folks, Jahn said. By supplying pamphlets, providing the
training video and other materials, we are committed to helping retailers
provide a fun, safe play environment for Lottery games.

Man Wins $4.38 Million Lottery with a Free Ticket
Davenport Man Claims
$4.38 Million Lotto America Jackpot
Chuck Anderson Won Prize
With Free Play From Davenport Convenience Store
CLIVE, Iowa (May 10, 2018) -- A
Davenport man on Thursday claimed a $4.38 million lottery jackpot,
acknowledging that he had beaten long odds to win a jackpot with a ticket he
received as a free play in a lottery promotion.
But Chuck Anderson emphasized that
he wasn't getting ahead of himself.
"I'm waiting until the money is
deposited," he said. "I won't believe it until it's there."
Anderson, 52, won Iowa's first
jackpot in Lotto America just six months after the game's start. And in an
interesting twist, his winning ticket was one that he received for free from
the Iowa Lottery.
His winning ticket came from the
Kwik Star convenience store at 2850 W. Locust St. in Davenport. This month, the
Iowa Lottery is giving away free lotto plays in a promotion called "Lotto
Surprise." Throughout the month, random players will receive free lotto plays
when they buy tickets in a particular game. During the first week of May, the
qualifying purchase was a Powerball® ticket and the free plays involved
were in the Lotto America game. So, Anderson's jackpot-winning ticket in Lotto
America was generated as a free play when he bought a Powerball ticket.
Anderson's ticket matched all six
numbers in Saturday's Lotto America drawing, which were: 8-15-18-32-45 and Star
Anderson said that he didn't check
the results of his tickets for a couple days after Saturday's drawing. When he
saw the winning numbers on the lottery website, he said he didn't believe it as
"I had to check them again,"
he said with a laugh. "I had to look a couple times."
Anderson said he is working with
legal and financial advisors to make responsible decisions with his winnings,
and he plans to invest the money for his future.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to
help family and feel lucky to have won this prize," he said. "As a family,
we're private people and don't want to change who we are."
Anderson chose to receive his prize
as the lump-sum amount of about $2.6 million.
Kwik Star will receive a $5,000
bonus from the Iowa Lottery for selling the Lotto America jackpot-winning
ticket at one of its stores.
Today's version of the Lotto America
game debuted Nov. 12 and is sold in Iowa and 12 other states. The game's name
is a throwback to the first multi-state lotto game known for big jackpots in
the United States. Iowa was a founding member of the original version of Lotto
America, which began back in 1988 and made headlines around the world for its
jackpots before ultimately being replaced by Powerball in 1992.
In today's version of Lotto America,
jackpots start at $2 million. Tickets cost $1 each and the game has drawings on
Wednesday and Saturday nights.
Lotto America has the playstyle of
Powerball, with players selecting numbers from two separate pools for a chance
at a big prize. Players in the game choose five numbers from a pool of 52 and
another number, called the Star Ball, from a pool of 10. Players who match all
six numbers in a drawing win the game's jackpot.
The odds of winning the jackpot in
Lotto America are around 1 in 26 million, compared to odds of about 1 in 292.2
million of winning the Powerball jackpot and about 1 in 302.6 million of
winning the Mega Millions jackpot.
Jackpot prize: $4,380,000
Chosen to receive as:
$2,615,080.18 lump-sum option
Net amount: $1,856,706.93
