01The Development Lotteries Board, renowned for launching innovative ways to satisfy customers, has just introduced a new lottery ticket titled ‘Ada Kotipathiya’ (today’s millionaire) which has revolutionised the market.  

The draws for the new lottery will be held on all seven days of the week. The new lottery ticket, launched on 15 August, will conduct its inaugural draw on Thursday, 31 August. The array of prizes offered is also innovatively designed, starting with a mammoth jackpot of Rs. 50 million. A collection of other prizes ranging from Rs. 100,000 to Rs. 1,000,000 are also offered.

The unique format of the new seven-day lottery has a combination of 75 numbers combined with letters from the English alphabet on 26 balls to choose the final lucky winners. What is even more unusual is that each ticket gets two chances to win. Soon after the main draw there will be a second draw for the balance balls to select four numbers from the same machine. The prizes will be given as follows:  Rs. 20 for two numbers, Rs. 500 for three numbers and Rs. 50,000 for four numbers.  

Profits from the Development Lottery are credited to the President’s Fund and Mahapola Scholarship Fund enabling many students to pursue higher education. The objective of the Development Lotteries Board is to continue to uplift the development services provided to the country.
