Does the jackpot roll over if there are no winners?
No, the jackpot stays at over ₹4 Crore if there are no winners. However, Bumper Draws take place from time to time, in which the jackpot is increased to a higher amount than usual for a special one-off event.
What is the Joker Ball?
The Joker Ball is a number between 1 and 5 that is randomly selected after the five main numbers. As it is selected from a separate pool, it is possible for the same number to appear as a main number and the Joker Ball in the same draw. The prize for matching the Joker Ball is a Free Bet Bonus.
Can you win the Match 2 prize more than once in the same draw?
No. The prize for matching between two and six main numbers is ₹40*. You are not entitled to win this prize twice if you match four numbers or three times if you match six. You must match the Joker Ball plus all six main numbers to win the jackpot.
