Lottery FAQ

What if there are no winners?

If EMO in the prize pools isn't won, it doesn't go to waste! Unclaimed EMO tokens rolls 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 respective numbers from left to right. See the 'How To Use Lottery" for a thorough explanation.

How are prizes broken down between brackets?

Each bracket's prize pool is a portion of the total EMO in each Lottery round.

Bracket (numbers matched in order)EMO Allocation

First 1 number


First 2 numbers


First 3 numbers


First 4 numbers


First 5 numbers


First 6 numbers




Can I swap my tickets back to EMO?

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

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.

How often is the lottery?

A lottery draw occurs every 12 or 36 hours. One lottery draw occurs every day alternating between 0 AM UTC and 12 PM UTC, next rounds after the 0 AM UTC rounds will be after 36 hours, next rounds after the 12 PM UTC rounds will be after 12 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 that 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 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 a single 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. Keep in mind that the prizes will not be 1:1 though, as each winning ticket you have dilutes each share of the bracket's total prizes.

Injection schedule: When is EMO added to the lottery?

When people buy tickets, the EMO they spend is added to the lottery pot. In addition, 10,000 EMO is also added (injected) to the lottery pot every other round on a regular schedule.
