Gosloto "4 out of 20"
The first draw of one of the most popular number lotteries now Gosloto has passed 31 December 2016 of the year
The novelty immediately attracted attention - of course, after all, in the New Year's edition it was possible to win a whole billion rubles! true, the lottery billionaire never appeared - no one could guess the coveted combination
But the country got a new game: with increased prize money (67%), a large number of prize categories and, what is most important, the new lottery gave the impression of lightness - in order to get the main prize, you had to guess everything 4 numbers from 20. Well, okay, in two fields
But after all 4 of 20!
Well, okay, in two fields. But after all 4 of 20!
true, the numerical formula of the new lottery is not so simple, as it seems. The probability of hitting the jackpot is 1:23 474 025, which is more difficult than in the same "6 out of 45" (1:8 145 060) but in the pursuit of a big win, few of the players think about its probability.
In 2017, the lottery "Gosloto" 4 out of 20 "became a real discovery for the organizers. In just a year, the new game entered the top five best selling, and its total turnover was 3,7 billion rubles. Given that, what happened in 2017 156 draws "4 out of 20" this gave an excellent indicator of the average circulation: ~ 235 rates for the amount 23,5 million rubles. Excellent performance!
But, for the organizer, these indicators turned out to be insufficient and in 2018 he went as usual (repeatedly tested in other lotteries) by: increasing the ticket price and increasing the number of draws held
Fortitude of fans of the "four"
It is worth admitting, that fans of the "Gosloto" 4 out of 20 "lottery held on with all their might. The decrease in turnover was not affected by the increase in the number of draws, nor increase (twice a year!) bet value. This is how it looks on the graphs:
Number of drawn runs, in 2017 and c 2018 years
Gosloto draws "4 out of 20" in 2017-2018, quantity
Beginning with 20 April 2018, the game began to be held three times more often: draws now run twice a day, or 14 once a week, which is almost five times more often than before (3 once a week). clear, that at such a frequency there can no longer be any talk of, to show pranks on TV. Now see the broadcast only on the Stoloto website. Well, or directly at the lottery center, if anyone has such an opportunity.
How more frequent draws affected bets? Their number has increased! Not five times, sure, but almost doubled, what (for the organizer) good too
Gosloto "4 out of 20" The number of bets made by players in 2017 and 2018 years
But, number of drawn runs, and the number of bets made by players, cannot be considered apart from the third important parameter, namely, the cost of the bet. Moreover, in 2018 the price of the Gosloto lottery 4 of 20 ″ increased twice: first before 150 rubles, and then before 200
Thus, the cost of the minimum bet has doubled in a very short time. It should be noted, what happened at record jackpot levels, what can be considered, as the operator's desire to squeeze the maximum out of the players, taking advantage of the opportunity.
Anyway, and the price increase was swallowed by the fans of the game. What affected the total turnover and confidence of the lottery monopolist in the correctness of his actions. For 2018 the year the Gosloto lottery “4 out of 20” was sold was 8,5 billion rubles
The monthly turnover of the Gosloto 4 out of 20 lottery in 2017-2018 years
The above diagrams more than clearly demonstrate the main secrets of Stoloto's success.:
- Draws should take place as often as possible, ideally every day
- The ticket price should be as high as possible
- To keep sales at a high level, the jackpot must also be a record one
clear, that such an approach is only possible on a monopoly market, when the consumer simply has no choice. As a result, the operator makes the most of the available (few, by the way) players, and is growing year after year in turnover.

Unclaimed winnings in Russia
About winnings, for which no one came, Can not hear anything. On the one hand, the lottery market itself in Russia is small, against the background of the same America, just microscopic. On the other hand, most of the unclaimed winnings are amounts, not exceeding 200 rubles.
maybe, you will be surprised, but there are a lot of them in total. According to the latest report of JSC "State Sports Lotteries" unclaimed are 512 million rubles. In one only in the lottery "Russian Lotto" such winnings - 289 385 620 rubles
Paragraph 7 annual financial statement - the amount of unclaimed winnings
In fairness it is worth clarifying, that the amount here is not for one year, but for two and a half. In Russia, a lottery winner can receive a prize within 3 years, if during this period he does not pick it up, then the money is transferred to the state budget.
18 millions are still waiting for the winner?
Nevertheless, in a similar report of the State Housing Lottery, a fairly large unclaimed win was found. Namely - in 179 in circulation, someone did not take the main prize. If we compare two runs in a row, by the main parameters such as - No. of circulation / number of unclaimed tickets / sum
- № 178 — 25 060 tickets - 1 514 100 rubles
- № 179 — 26 350 tickets - 19 725 350 rubles
noticeably significant difference in the amount. With almost equal number of unclaimed tickets. IN 179 in circulation, someone just won good money - 18 110 695 rubles.
As usual, nothing is known about the winner, declared only, that he is from Ufa. Here is what they wrote in their time on Stoloto:
"In the 179th draw of the Housing Lottery, which was broadcast 30 April, there was a real sensation! The largest super prize in the history of this lottery was drawn in the amount of 17 900 695 rubles! <…> Also add, what will he get extra 210 thousand rubles for winning the first round. Participant's total winnings, which the, by the way, bought my ticket in Ufa, will be 18 110 695 rubles! With which we congratulate him. How to claim a win? It is enough to come to the central office "
At least until July 2017 (when the report was published) that is more than a year, the winner of this draw did not collect his winnings. But, for some reason no one is looking for him. Do not want to search? Or, the winner took his money after the report was published?
In the history of Stoloto there were examples when the winners for some inexplicable reasons did not take their winnings for a long time. for example, a certain resident of the Amur region won 94 382 263 ruble in September 2015, but took them only in January 2016. Almost five months have passed! Spun with business, could not get out, or just temporarily the money was not needed? The answer is unknown, Alas
At all, for some reason, the organizer of the lottery in Russia does not want to show its big winners (apparently, not interested in such advertising), so were all these millionaires in principle, whether they received their money - we do not know for certain, they are all known only from the words of the Stoloto press service. Although there are almost two dozen of these lucky ones on the list, none of them showed themselves in any way after the received prize.
