Lottery FAQ

What if there are no winners?

If FISH in the prize pools isn't won it doesn't go to waste! Unclaimed FISH will roll over to the next lottery round.

My ticket matches several numbers but I can't claim a prize.

Tickets are only eligible for prizes if they match the winning numbers from left to right.

How are prizes broken down between brackets?

Each bracket's prize pool is a portion of the total FISH in each lottery round.
Bracket (numbers matched in order)
FISH Allocation
Match first 1
Match first 2
Match first 3
Match first 4
Match first 5
Match first 6

Can I swap my tickets back to FISH?

No, once purchased you will not be able to convert your tickets back to FISH.

If I win, do I need to manually claim the prize?

Yes, you will need to click the Check Now button under "Are you a winner?" on the lottery page and claim your prize manually.

How often is the lottery played?

A lottery draw occurs every 24 hours.

What transaction fee will I pay for buying tickets?

Every ticket purchase you make will be one transaction. Purchasing a single ticket in a lottery purchase will cost the normal amount of fees for a transaction.
However, buying more tickets in one purchase will increase the fee. Buying 100 tickets rather than 1 will not multiply the fee by 100, but may increase the fee amount by about 5-6 times (though this varies).

How does the bulk discount work?

The bulk discount rewards buying larger amounts of tickets with a scaling discount. If you're only buying 2 tickets, the discount is negligible, but will add up quickly as you increase the number of tickets to buy in the one transaction.
The discount only applies to each transaction up to 100 tickets. The discount does not carry over to the next transaction or next round.

Why can I only buy 100 tickets?

You can only buy a maximum of 100 tickets in one purchase, but you can make multiple purchases. There's nothing to stop you buying more tickets after your first 100.

If I manually create two or more tickets with the same numbers and they win, am I eligible for prizes for each ticket?

Yes, each ticket is treated as a separate entry to the lottery. But keep in mind that the prizes will not be 1:1 though, as each winning ticket you have dilutes each share of the winning bracket's total prizes.
