1) the size of the lottery prize fund in relation to the proceeds from the lottery must be at least 50 percent
What it does The elimination of the upper limit of the prize pool brings the format of the classic lottery closer to a slot machine:
“Why do we need a prize fund in 90%? You threw the ruble, pulled the lever - and won 50 kopecks. Another ruble - and won again 50 kopecks - true, the ruble has already been lost. Prize fund 90% Is an obligatory element of a slot machine, otherwise you will leave. You have to pull the handle, and you must have a belief, that you win - this is how gambling addiction is formed "- (from an interview with Alexander Zibrov, of the General Director of CJSC Interlot)
Who Benefited Thanks to the amendment, LLC "Growth Rates" (later renamed into LLC "State Lotteries" Pobeda ") 08.04.11 registered four new lotteries, with a prize fund 90%. It was they who were used in the gaming halls of "Victory", acting as a "legal" slot machine.
Turnover of Pobeda slot machines (disguised as a lottery with a prize fund 90%) made up 2,3 billion rubles in 2013 year and 23 billion in 2014. What is characteristic, the volume of the entire lottery market was estimated at the same 2014 in 14-15 billion rubles. And the state, in the form of deductions from lotteries with an increased game fund received only 2,3 million rubles in 2013 and 23 million in 2014. Or 0,1% from turnover, thanks to another tricky amendment
Differences between instant lotteries and drawn ones
Instant lotteries are a ticket, in which it is necessary to erase the protective layer, under which there will be a combination of numbers, either signs. Immediately after that, you can find out the amount of the win. Often there is also a field "Do not erase", under which the protective watermarks are located, by which the organizers can verify the authenticity of the ticket when issuing the award.
Instant lottery tickets are usually cheaper than drawn lottery tickets, but, respectively, and the maximum winning amount is less. Due to the fact, that the prize is recognized almost immediately small amounts can be received right at the place of ticket purchase.
Draw lotteries are drawn one-time by the organizers of the game, often this can be accompanied by broadcast on television or on the Internet, due to which you can partially check the honesty of the draw. There are two main types of tickets: in some numbers, the player chooses when buying on the website or in an offline point of sale, others already have pre-indicated combinations on the ticket. The largest jackpots are accumulated in the first type of lotteries.

What are Draw Lotteries: rules and history of creation
The history of gambling and various lotteries goes back to the distant past. Modern lottery draws first appeared in medieval Europe. Written mentions start with the Genoa Lottery, which started in 16 century. Is considered, that the then ruler of Genoa, due to the sad state of the treasury, decided to organize a gambling, part of the prize fund which will go to the state.
A similar initiative was taken up by the French king Francis after his visit to the territory of modern Italy., to also improve the state of the treasury of their country. Gradually, more and more advanced countries of that time held various raffles of money, in which citizens had the opportunity to receive a significant gain.
The basic principle of modern lotteries has not deviated much from the original - players purchase tickets at their own expense. From the accumulated funds, the organizers of the game form a prize fund, which is divided in certain proportions between the participants, by the state in the form of taxes and by the company, holding a draw.
At the moment, the state has become the main regulators of the fairness of lotteries., which legally monitors the organizers and players. To participate in the drawing lottery, you must purchase a ticket, which contains a certain combination of numbers or signs. The results can be found on the organizer's website or at points of sale. Usually, you can also get your prize there, or consult about the location of the organization's office, where the bigger awards are given.
