How the Games Work

All our games offer a chance to win prizes ranging from a free ticket to millions of dollars. Every play has the same chance of being a winner or loser as the one before it or after it; however, your odds of winning prizes of different values vary based on the size of the prize available to be won.

There’s nothing wrong with dreaming, but always keep in mind how the games work and your true chances of winning the top prizes.
