Promotions, contests, quizzes, etc.

it, sure, not quite a lottery in the literal sense, but the principle of choosing the winners is similar

Many companies organize contests or promotions to attract attention., advertise the product, increase the target audience, etc.. This can be used, to get something profitable for yourself

Usually, in such promotions, prizes are not given in cash., and any goods. If the product is worth it, to fight for him, then you should not ignore such a share. Even if the thing is not needed, it will be possible to get rid of it later by selling it at some flea market.

In order to always be aware of new contests and promotions, you can use the sites and forums of prizes. You can also learn from them a successful hunt for prizes., exchange trophies if you are lucky, achieve the goal by joint efforts.


  • since the prize fund is not formed by the purchase of tickets by players, then there is no such rule, what only 50% collected funds go to payments to players;
  • promotions are held quite often;
  • unlike buying a ticket, the player also has the product itself, to increase the probability of winning, you can buy more of these items, and use them later - when needed;


  • quite often, instead of normal prizes, all sorts of nonsense is offered like mobile content or small flash drives;
  • most often, to get a big prize, you need to buy as many goods as possible and register as many codes as possible, ie. the prize is given to, who spent more money, and is not determined randomly from all participating in the promotion;
  • valuable or interesting prizes are not always offered;
  • even big brands do not always fulfill their obligations to send prizes to winners.

Lottery betting: theory

Why lotteries attract millions of people is clear, why do betters choose such bets as a hope of earning money?? Let's figure it out.

The main advantages of forecasts for government and commercial draws:

  1. Frequency - most lotteries are available for betting every day.
  2. Independence of the result from the knowledge of the bookmaker's experts.
  3. Lack of human factor, able to influence the outcome of the game.
  4. Good odds.
  5. The ability to stick to one strategy for a long enough time.

Many players the bets try to fit the results lottery, when it comes to numeric, under a certain logarithm, calculate the probability of a particular number and make a prediction for the next game. However, these weak attempts to predict the future are not worth considering, as a significant component of probable income, the main role in each lottery is assigned to luck and the right strategy.

Simple Soviet bookkeeper

The main prize - a trip around the world - was won by Alexander Kazarinov, a 27-year-old accountant at the Mayak match factory from Rybinsk. He didn't make a decision right away, what to choose, that's what the magazine "Ogonyok" wrote about it

Kazarinov, by purchasing a ticket for the Osoviachim lottery ,almost forgot about him and almost lost. He did not dream of traveling around the world and lived his usual work life., Suddenly, one truly beautiful May day, fate was pleased to turn his quiet life in peaceful Rybinsk.

The phone rings in the factory office. Kazarinov fits

- I'm listening ...

- Someone should have a ticket at your factory. 09121, series 78, world travel winner.

Alexander Kazarinov, illustration in the magazine "Ogonyok"

Kazarinov shudders. His ticket, it seems, ends in 21 ... But he forgot, where is he ... Looking in the table, in different papers - no ticket! Finally, ticket found. No doubt! Series 78, № 09121. Beads of sweat appear on Kazarinov's forehead ... Congratulations to Kazarinov. His head is spinning. What to do? What to choose?

Should I get four and a half thousand rubles and continue my education at the Polytechnic Institute?, or embark on a dizzying trip around the world? Didn't sleep all night. I thought. Consulted with a sixty-year-old mother

The question was of enormous importance ... "

Russia and the USSR

Russia learned about lotteries from watchmaker Yakov Gassenus. It was still under Peter the Great. However, the first large-scale drawing took place only under Catherine II - in 1764 year she issued the corresponding decree. true, the first draw was unsuccessful: the game brought the state only losses - from the imperial treasury it was necessary to allocate extra 45 thousand rubles for payment of obligations on winning tickets. Of course, after such an experience, Catherine the Great disliked lotteries and did not engage in their holding anymore.

In Soviet Russia, the history of the lottery could initially end forever - a ban was announced on lotteries - they were considered bourgeois vestiges. However, when the state needed money, there was no better solution to attract them. Lottery funds were used to fund the country's needs during World War I.. About 70% the budget of the Soviet Olympics was also collected through the sale of lottery tickets.

Most widespread lottery, like other gambling, received in the eighties of the last century (twentieth). Thought about, that for a small amount and in an instant you can become fabulously rich, delighted people in those days no less, чем сегодня.

Round the world voyage

Alexander Kazarinov chose a trip, and did not lose! Voyage, started at the Moscow airport, lasted 71 day, кругосветку активно освещали многие советские газеты и журналы.

По итогам поездки победитель опубликовал в рыбинской газете “Рабочий и пахарь” свои мемуары:

"Osoaviakhim took off my old trousers and shirt, giving me a new European suit, then they put me on the plane of the German company "Deruluft", and already in Konigsberg an interpreter was assigned to me ".

He didn’t like Koenigsberg, Too cramped and old!». But Berlin and especially the German match factory made an indelible impression on the accountant from Rybinsk: “This is a factory! There is complete order inside the workshops, new equipment, cars, packing delighted me!».

In Paris, Kazarinov was in the same group with two American women: “One is the wife of a millionaire banker, and the other - a major engineer ... When they found out, that I'm from Russia, American women have veins with fear, should be, shook ".

From Europe, on the motor ship "Albert Ballive" Kazarinov sailed to America. US immigration authorities initially did not allow him to land in New York. He was detained on board a motor ship and placed in a barracks for illegal migrants on Ellis Island.

After several hours in a cell and interrogation by the authorities, interested in, is Kazarinov going to overthrow the US government, the traveler has received permission to enter the country.

“Tell your comrades in the USSR, that i feel great,- Kazarinov asked the TASS correspondent in New York. "Traveling gives me great pleasure.". By the way, to your next destination - Chicago, Alexander went by train in a first class carriage, like a real millionaire. It was compensation from the Americans for the inconvenience caused..

California became the final destination in the USA, from where the ocean liner delivered it to the Japanese port of Yokohama.

“Many spies met us at the pier. And one in civilian clothes even asked in Russian: "You are the one, who won the trip from the Bolsheviks? I suppose, happy, what finally broke out!». And I answered him with a fig: "It is for you!».

A trip around the world has become fateful for a simple bookkeeper. After returning home, Kazarinov moved from Rybinsk to Moscow, where he became a staff lecturer at Osoaviakhim. Now he began to travel around Russia - he traveled to cities with stories about life abroad..

Money instead of a trip

Not all winners chose travel as a prize. There were those, who preferred to take the winnings in money. One of them is an unknown resident of Samara, on the ticket of which the flight on the route Moscow - Paris - Moscow fell.

The winner who won the trip on the route Moscow - Paris - Moscow decided to get it in money

Ticket owner, refused to give his last name, received the cost of the flight - 1 425 rubles. The note also mentions three smaller winning tickets (circular flights over cities), true, and in these cases, the winners decided to take money.

Dream of flying

Another interesting case is connected with one of the issues of the Osoaviakhim lottery, when choosing a win (flight by plane) literally determined the fate

"Sergey Anokhin, born in 1910 year, after graduating from seven-year school, he worked as a tracklayer on the railway. The path to heaven began with a lucky chance: at the end of the 20s of the last century, Sergei's older brother won skis in the Osoaviakhim lottery and asked his brother to pick them up in the committee of this organization. When the next day Sergei showed up there, It revealed, that there is another option for the lottery prize - flight (as a passenger) on a light plane over Moscow. Without hesitation, Sergey exchanged the won skis for him. So he lifted off the ground for the first time.

Returning from flight, Sergey understood: to fly is his calling. As the writer Yaroslav Golovanov later put it, “This is how the biggest prize in the history of all our lotteries took place: Soviet aviation won Sergei Anokhin ".

Results of the first draw

All income, from the lottery, entered the USSR Defense and Aviation-Chemical Construction Fund. On funds, received by the Society, produced 35 combat aircraft and 30 tanks MS-1

The lottery's success was so obvious, that soon the second edition was carried out, it took place in may 1928 in Kharkov. Total passed 15 circulations of Osoviahim, the last one took place in 1941 year. During this time, the state budget received more than 800 million rubles.

After the war, the lottery continued on almost the same principles., but under a different name, ее проводит преемник Осоавиахиама — общество «ДОСААФ»
