Lottery Prize Types

Prize Types for Lottery Prizes

Each prize has a Prize Type, which by default is called “General”.

A ticket cannot win more than one prize per Prize Type.

Many prizes can have the same Prize Type, and for most¬†organisations there is only ever one Prize Type (of “General”) for the lottery.

If all of your tickets are set to a Prize Type of “General” then a ticket cannot win more than one prize per lottery. This is the usual method of running a lottery.

However, if you have special draws where the same ticket can win again, such as an early-bird draw, you can use the Prize Type to separate these different groups. For example you might have several prizes for the Early Bird draw, so these should all have the same Prize Type, such as “Early Bird”.

This gives a ticket an equal chance of winning a prize in both the Early Bird draw and the main (General) draw.
