Kerala Lottery Games – How They Work…
Kerala Lotteries Indian Lottery tickets are pre-printed with numbers beginning with 100,000 and each India Lottery ticket also having a 2 letter, alphabetic code.
The 1st letter of the alphabetic code denotes the Indian Lotto game that it relates to and the 2nd letter denotes the “Series“. For example - with a ticket bearing the code “KL” - the “K” means the “Kairali Lottery” and the “L” means the “Series” of tickets involved.
7 separate drums in 7 separate colours are used to make the Lottery India - Kerala Lotteries draw. The 1st drum is used to draw the ticket “Series” and the rest represent Numbers from “Lakhs” place to “ones” (units) place.
A closed purse containing tokens with the “Series” code for that particular draw is then put inside the 1st drum. The 2nd drum contains a closed purse with tokens for the number of Lakhs involved in that particular Indian Lottery draw - to determine the Lakhs place.
The remaining 5 drums are filled with purses containing tokens numbered from 1 tom 9. Now, the India Lottery draw can take place.
After all the drums have been mixed, a token is taken from the 1st drum which marks the 1st place winning series. Each of the remaining drums then produce a number each which are written to the right of the “Series” code producing a alpha/numeric code declared as the winning lottery number…
…for example “KT 251418“.
If this Indian Lottery number drawn relates to a ticket that has not been sold, Kerala Lotteries will repeat the draw until the prize goes to a ticket that has been sold.
