It is carried out by subsidiaries of Russian Railways. According to the old Soviet tradition, tickets are distributed on a voluntary-compulsory basis - cashiers and conductors try to stick them out at railway ticket offices.
The lottery is held on thirty-digit railway ticket numbers. For, so that a ticket from the railway became also a lottery, you need to pay one hundred rubles. If everyone 13 digits matched, then the jackpot is won. There are also lower categories - when the last numbers coincided - from two to five.
In May 2012 of the year a resident of the Stavropol Territory won 11 521 201 ruble.
In custody, we want to note the following: as seen from the above data, on the draw lottery market in Russia (which the, by the way, according to expert estimates is about 10 billion rubles), presented 20 lotteries of varying degrees of popularity. About half of lotteries are held on the basis of lotto or bingo, ie. the winning depends on the order of the balls, the other half is the classic lottery scheme, where you just need to guess from two or more numbers. There is practically no difference between "state" and non-state lotteries. All lotteries are required to transfer to the prize fund at least 50% from proceeds. Unfortunately, the state does not particularly control the fairness of the circulation.
In theory, these functions are within the competence of the Federal Tax Service. It is she who issues licenses, and must control the working conditions of lotteries. In practice, this does not happen.. This is evidenced by at least the fact, what for June 2011 over a thousand lottery licenses were issued, and sometimes they were often issued to one-day firms. Anyway, the FTS has big problems with its main function - tax collection, she has no time for lotteries. Law enforcement agencies don't do this job either., because they need a crime statement to react. Well, who in their right mind would apply – "I AM, pier, did not win the lottery ". If the lottery belongs to the "state", then only receipts from lotteries to the budget are controlled. Basically, The Accounts Chamber. Thus, the honesty of the lottery in Russia is not controlled by anyone. And there are many methods of manipulating the results.. Well, even if you do not take into account such clumsy, which the state lot applies (cm. article gosloto deception). Firstly, modern technologies make it possible to make such a lottery drum, which will give out the right balls in the right order, even if the draw takes place with a large number of spectators and live. Secondly, there is another very simple way: eg, suppose, that the jackpot has reached a certain - a fairly large amount. Then everything is simple, after the draw, if the jackpot has not fallen to anyone again, the organizer retroactively enters the winning ticket into the system, and, thus, takes the jackpot to himself. We're pretty sure, that such "tricks" are carried out by the majority of lottery operators.
Generally, personally, the author of the article is not inclined to play Russian lotteries, considering them a priori dishonest and not inspiring confidence.
so, the first number is a fairly hyped state lot.
