there is a crypto lottery with following rules and I would like to know the chances to hit 4 numbers? Thank you in advance and stay safe and healthy

link to see the full rules is https://docs.pancakeswap.finance/lottery-1

FAQ link is https://docs.pancakeswap.finance/lottery-faq

Paying for one ticket will give users a random 4 digit combination with each digit being between 1-14, for e.g. “1-9-3-2”

To win the lottery jackpot (50% of the entire lottery pool), users need to match all 4 numbers on their tickets in the same position as the 4 winning numbers.

from the FAQ

Are all ticket numbers unique?

There are a total of 38,416 different ticket combinations. This may be adjusted later based on the number of participants.

Ticket numbers are given out randomly. As such, there is a small chance that a user receives the same 4 digits in two tickets held.

Fair enough thx and for trying but I just wanted to know the chances to win and get those 4 numbers out of 14

Since all generated tickets are random, the chance of winning a share of the jackpot with 1 ticket is 1/38,416.

Quote:ThatDonGuySomething about this doesn't pass the smell test. It says that your four numbers are each from 1 to 14, but it also says that the method used to draw numbers only draws numbers from 1 to 10.

Since all generated tickets are random, the chance of winning a share of the jackpot with 1 ticket is 1/38,416.

thanks for taking the time to answer

I looked again but could not find where it says that only numbers from 1-10 are drawn

regarding the 1/38,416 it looks that I was confused by

Match all 4 numbers in the exact order

cheers

From the main page, under "How are ticket numbers drawn?":

The 1st lottery number will be determined based on the %10 remainder of a hash encoded by the blockhash and the number of participating users at the entry deadline.

A "%10 remainder" means that the hash is divided by 10 and the remainder used. Okay, technically this is 0-9, but I assume 1 is then added to it.

However, I did look at the lottery page, and the list of recently drawn numbers are all in the 1-14 range.

The probability of winning is 1 / 38,416.

This is because the same number can be drawn two or more times. Go here to see recent draws, and there should be some with repeated numbers. Each position has a 1/14 chance of being matched. "Exact order" just means that if your numbers are, for example, 9, 2, 14, and 14, then you don't win if the drawn numbers in order are 14, 9, 2, 14.

yes the same number can be drawn 2 or more times and I also saw the draw history and always in 1-14 range

this is the new kind of lottery as it is combined with new crypto coins to attract users/buyers

thanks to all again to try to shed some light

Hi Seven,

Just IMHO.

I realise that crypto currencies are controversial in their merits, with some saying it's all just some kind of Ponzi scheme or bubble, and others saying it's the solid future of currency, but this is one crypto that is hard to take seriously on any level. It ranks as something like #51 in terms of capitalisation. The website does not seem to show 'privacy policy'/ 'about us' sections and the 'lottery' they run seems a total regulatory joke. Nothing about it screams 'Trust me', especially the rules.

Looks like a fun way to give your valuable crypto away.

If you need to purchase 'stake' coins with more valuable fiat or crypto-currency, then expect your funds to take a one-way trip.

Caveat Emptor.

hi OnceDear

I fully agree with you and thanks for giving your opinion. very important that everyone will do his DD as there are good ones and bad ones out there. Bitcoin is a good example as it was for many years called a ponzi/scam and take a look now where it is.

I am looking at every new idea in connection with lottery and cryptos. to be frank I would like to open a crypto lottery and this is the reason that I check out every new crypto lottery. I have an idea and try to learn.

cheers
