Frequently Asked Questions

Can multiple people win the 1st prize?

Yes, of course, and this does happen occasionally.

The JPY 200 million jackpot will be split between all lucky winners.

How many times can the jackpot carry over?

Technically, only once until the next Friday, when it increases by three times to JPY 600 million.

If no-one claims this prize, it will keep on carrying over as JPY 600 million.

Can I bet more than once?

Yes, you definitely can.

If you wish to make a single bet, choose numbers from Box A only. For two bets, choose Box A and Box B, etc. See the table above.

Is the winning amount always the same?

Actually, NO it isn’t!

The top prize of JPY 200 million is classified as a theoretical amount because it depends on the amount of sales and the number of winning tickets sold.
