The lottery has been part of human culture for centuries. It is not only a game of luck but also a game of designs as all lottery tickets are designed in a square shape with eyes at each corner. The square shape of the ticket, is known as the globe and includes the drawing squares, or fantasy square as British tourists refer to it as. Around the globe, there are countless versions of the lottery game.
In Europe, the most popular lottery game is the English football betting. The English football betting involves a nine team European league, which hasest technically twenty teams. The name of the league is Derby County Premier League. Every match takes place in the Stannington Park ground, which is located in ordinary ground. Only a small percentage of the total ticket sales is used to fund the different clubs of the league and the total amount raised is compared in the four home leagues – Soccer being the exception, as it does not take part in the national league.
Derby County Premier League is not part of anything bigger than that, unlike the English football league. It is purely a club based lottery and has rather more prestige and classrooms of instruction attached to it than other forms of the lottery.
Unlike the other leagues of the English football, the Derby County Premier League has special features like the ‘Cutucks’. ‘The Cutucks’ is a mock quarter final in the Premier League. ‘The Cutucks’ is an exhibition match where steerers are taken from the teams during the match, and their elimination rounds are shown live on television.
As a child of the internet age, I also found many many many lottery tickets of that type – simple little terminals, each containing a card that has three rows and three columns on it, and you have to choose six out of forty five numbers to match the drawn numbers. The odds of picking the correct six numbers are about one in 8. There are other forms of the lottery like the ‘ATS’.
The ATS method of playing the lottery involves having a ‘book’ of numbers, similar to the UK lottery draw, except that the top column – the ‘high’ column – has forty five numbers. The middle column – the ‘medium’ column – has another thirty five numbers. Then the bottom column – the ‘low’ column – has just twenty five numbers.
When a player wins the top prize in the ATS method of playing the lottery, he must choose all six of the winning numbers from the high and medium columns. If a player wins the second prize, he must choose five of the winning numbers from the low and high columns. The third prize, in the ATS method of playing the lottery, is to have a ‘cut’ or all six of the winning numbers in the top column; and the same for the third prize. Prizes for the fourth and fifth prizes are the same in format, but the format of each prize is slightly different.
When playing the Naga303, it is important to note that the high numbers are referred to as the UK Lottery numbers, the low numbers are called the European Lottery numbers, £1, £2, £5, £10, £20, £50, £100, and £500.
When playing the EuroMillions lottery, the numbers 1 to 50 are used. When following the ATS route, the player must obtain all the winning numbers from the top column or row, and the numbers from the bottom column or column. Each of the five winning numbers must be above the number in the top column. If there is no suitable placement for the number, the bottom number becomes the new reference point. Following the pattern set out in the table, the player should select the third prize.
The pattern used for the ATS route in the UK lottery is:
Referred lottery + 1st prize + 2nd prize + 3rd prize + 4th prize + 5th prize + 6th prize + 7th prize + 8th prize + 9th prize + 10th prize.
