If SELF in the prize pools isn't won it doesn't go to waste! Unclaimed SELF rolls over to the next Lottery round.
Tickets are only eligible for prizes if matching numbers from left to right. See the Lottery documentation for a thorough explanation.
Each bracket's prize pool is a portion of the total SELF in each Lottery round.
Bracket (numbers matched in order)

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