I'll play again. Can I pay now or do I need to wait until it's reset?

Yes you can buy tickets now. It is reset as soon as prizes have been sent at 18:00 UTC, so you have a week to buy tickets for the next lottery.

Don't spend all your money. Gambling is addictive :)

At a cost of .35 USD to play, I have worse addictions.

Somebody bought one ticket and put 5 rows of 5 numbers in it for a total of 25 numbers. You can't do that.
The rule is one ticket for one row of 5 numbers.
This ticket will play in the next lottery but only the first row of numbers will play.

Question: should one ticket be allowed to participate in all 3 rounds?

Example:
a ticket comes with numbers 1,2,3,4,5

5-number round winning combination: 1,2,3,4,5
4-number round winning combination: 1,2,3,4,10
3-number round winning combination: 1,2,3,10,20

Should the ticket take prizes in all rounds or just the first one it matches?
Logically the ticket should be canceled after the first round but I never play lotteries, have no idea what is right or wrong, lol.

Nobody has shared a contrary opinion on this matter, I assume my judgement is not wrong. Ticket(s) that won in round of 5 will be removed from playing in rounds of 4 and 3. Ticket(s) that won in round of 4 will be removed from playing in round of 3.

I'd like to remind the lottery rules:

Check off the Encrypt Message box, the message must be publicly visible on the blockchain for transparency.

Encrypted attachments will not be processed, funds sends with encrypted attachments will be considered donations. Some people send encrypted from time to time. Don't unless you want to make a donation.

How can one tell (after the fact) whether or not they sent an unencrypted message?

In the NXT client when you click on send NXT - Add a Message, there is a Encrypt Message checkbox. It's checked on by default, you must check it off. Checking off will send the attachment unencrypted.

When you click on a confirmed transaction in the NXT client or https://nxtportal.org, you can receive information whether the attachment is encrypted or it is not. In the latter case you will be able to read the contents, and everyone can. The lottery can't process encrypted attachments because then there is no way to prove who sent what numbers. The numbers must be public and visible to all on the blockchain.

Only 2 tickets were bought in lottery #6, surprisingly both of them won :)
I'm not sure if the lottery should continue with this low interest.

Probably, but I have no desire to fuel addictions. This will stay a basic proof-of-concept, I will run the last lottery this week and shut it down. Maybe till better times.

Today will be the last lottery. After that I'll close it and send back any new transfers, so after today's run please don't buy new tickets.

thank you, rubenaco.
I am not worried, it's just not the right time, but the idea is there and can be brought back from the shelf and extended, maybe next year when we have more activity and across child chains too :)
