There are different types and formats of lottery games. If the prize is a fixed amount then it is subject to the organizer’s risk as sufficient number of tickets may not always be sold. Consequently, the net sum collected may not add up to the prize money promised. Hence it is more common that the organizer declares a prize of value that forms a fixed percentage of the total amount collected.
The general types of lottery games are scratchers, 3 or 4 digit games and video games. 3 or 4 digit games can be user-selected or readymade, depending on the country. More developed countries like the UK and USA mostly play user-selected number games.
