The game prizes vary from game to game and are dependent upon the number of players in the game, the number of tickets purchased, the ticket price, the amount of real money staked and whether the game is included in a promotion. All prizes and the number of players are shown at the start of each game. The return to player (RTP) for paper will be 80% and above.

Each game has three potential prizes:

  • Full House Prize - the first player(s) to match all 5 numbers on a ticket.
  • Tier 1 Jackpot - stake x50,000 if they win the full house prize in 5 calls.
  • Tier 2 Jackpot - stake x10,000 if they win the full house prize in 6 calls.

If more than one player wins, the full house prize will be shared amongst all valid winners. Should more than one person win the jackpot, each will receive the full jackpot amount.
