About Tickets

The tickets are printed with numbers starting from 100,000, each bearing an alphabetic code. The numbers are preceded by a code consisting of two alphabets, of which the first letter representing the name of the lottery scheme and the second letter representing the series. For example, in a ticket bearing the No. AB-123456, the letter A – represents Akshaya and B – represents the series.

How Tickets are Arranged for Drawing

Seven Drums of seven different colors are use for drawing the tickets.

  • The 1st drum represents the ticket Series for the draw and the rest represent Numbers from ‘lakhs’ place to ‘ones’ (units) place.
  • A closed purse containing tokens with series code for that particular draw is then put inside the first drum. Then comes the second drum, which represents the lakhs place. Consider, for example, three lakh tickets have been printed in each particular series for a draw. Then the second drum is placed with a closed purse containing tokens numbering from 1 to 3, representing the lakhs place. All other drums are filled with purses containing token numbering from 0 to 9.

Now the drums are ready for the draw. The supervising panel is given a list containing the sold and unsold numbers.

Procedure of Drawing the Tickets

  • After Setting up the drums for drawing the tickets , a handle attached with the drum is swiftly rotated so that the tokens inside the purse mix with each other.
  • The Chairman of the supervising panel then takes a token from the first drum, which is the first place winning series. This token is exhibited for the public and the series code is written on the board, facing the stage.
  • This procedure is then followed for each drum to get a number from each one. The numbers are written on the right side of the series code, one after another. Once the numbers from all the drums are written, we get an alphabetic code with two alphabets and six numbers.This number is declared as the winning number.
  • If a prize goes to an unsold ticket kept under the custody of the department, the same will be detected at real-time by verification with the list of unsold tickets and the draw for that particular prize will be repeated till the prize goes to a sold ticket.
  • The department officials present at the venue enters this number in their register as the winning number. After a few draws by the panelists, public are invited to participate in the draw procedure, to find out the remaining winning numbers.

Authenticity and Transparency of Drawing Tickets

The department has taken every possible step to make the draw transparent. There is no common venue for all draws. Venues are decided by the department on the basis of consultation with agents and the public. After deciding on the venue, a panel consisting of the MLA (of that constituency) as Chairman, other public representatives, socio-cultural and political persons etc., is constituted to entrust with the job of draw. Venue for the draw and the details of panel members are published before the date of draw, which ensures maximum public participation. The public is given the chance to participate in the procedure once the first few prizes are determined by judges present.
