Lottery Mechanics

Breakdown of important lottery mechanics

When should I join a round?

Any Argonaut holder can purchase a ticket anytime before the round ends (we'll stop ticket sales near round conclusions to prevent any complications due to block congestion)

However‌, Not all Lottery rounds are built the same. All un-won prizes roll over to be won in the next round - thus, the longer people don't win, the bigger the prize pot becomes, the larger each prize pool gets. Every ticket sold also adds into the value of the prize pool!

At the end of every month, 10% of the earned Argonauts Royalties will be sent into the prize pool - so look forward to our announcement for those special rounds!

How can I check the prize pot?

‌1. Visit the Argo Lottery Page <link> and look at the top of the page. You'll see the current round's prize pool shown in (estimated) US dollar value.

This is the amount to be shared between all winners.

‌2. A little lower down the page you'll find the remaining time before the current round is drawn.

If you're unsure, you can always wait closer to the draw time to purchase a ticker, however, don't wait too long! - there are only 500 eligible tickets every round!

Buying Lottery tickets

Simple - have enough xARGO (200 xARGO per ticket, less if you qualify for discounts)

You can choose to either randomize your lottery ticket numbers, or to choose your ticket numbers manually. Choose between the randomized numbers and manual numbers tabs below for a guide to each method.

Randomized ticket numbers

1. On the Argo Lottery Page <link>, click the Buy Tickets button at the top of the page (there's another lower on the page also).

There is a time between rounds where purchasing tickets isn't possible. Just check back after the countdown if that's the case.

2. A window will open letting you choose how many ticket to buy. Type how many tickets you'd like to buy into the field. You can also use the preset buttons underneath.

3. When you're happy with the number of tickets you want to buy, click Buy Instantly and confirm your action in your wallet.

Viewing your tickets after buying

You can view your tickets after buying them before the round's numbers are drawn.

1. Click View Your Tickets in the "Next Draw" area of the Lottery page.

2. A window will open showing all of your tickets and their numbers. It'll also give you the option to buy more tickets if you'd like.

When the round ends and winning numbers are drawn

‌When the round has ended and the winning numbers are available, you can check your tickets to see if you won.

‌View your winning tickets

‌You can view your winning tickets in the same way you viewed your tickets after buying them.

‌1. Click View Your Tickets in the "Finished Rounds" area of the Lottery page.

2. A window will open showing the winning numbers and all of your tickets and their numbers.
