What transaction fee will I pay for buying tickets?

Every ticket purchase you make will be one transaction. Purchasing a single ticket in a Lottery purchase will cost the normal amount of fees for a transaction. However, buying more tickets in that purchase will increase the fee. Buying 100 tickets rather than 1 will not multiply the fee by 100, but may increase the fee amount by 5-6 times (though this will vary).

How does the bulk discount work?

The bulk discount rewards buying larger amounts of tickets with a scaling discount. If you're only buying 2 tickets, the discount is negligible, but will add up quickly as you increase the number of tickets to buy in the one transaction.The discount only applies to each transaction up to 100 tickets. The discount does not carry over to the next transaction or next round.

Why can I only buy 100 tickets?

In an effort to ensure fairness and equal access, you can only buy a maximum of 100 tickets.

If I manually create two or more tickets with the same numbers and they win, am I eligible for prizes for each ticket?

Yes, each ticket is treated as a separate entry to the Lottery. Keep in mind that the prizes will not be 1:1 though, as each winning ticket you have dilutes each share of the bracket's total prizes.

Injection schedule: When is SELF added to the lottery?

When people buy tickets, the SELF they spend is added to the lottery pot. In addition, 40,000 SELF is also added (injected) to the lottery pot every round as shown above in the lottery schedule figure. This injection schedule started with Lottery Round 2.
