India’s lottery post is ‘just another lottery’
A new lottery in India is just another lottery.
The government of Maharashtra has just introduced a new lottery that offers “one-of-a-kind prizes” of up to Rs 2 lakh for the winners of the biggest lottery of the year, with a prize of Rs 5 lakh for “greatest”.
It is a first in India, the first lottery to be introduced by the state government.
The prize of the lottery is the sum of the winnings of Rs 1 crore and Rs 1.5 crore in the previous lottery.
The government has also announced that a lottery of “unlimited” and “uncontestable” entries will also be offered.
These are the “limitless” and the “contestables”, according to the government.
The “unlimitless and thecontestibles” are the prizes in the lottery.
“This is just a lottery, but it is a new one,” said Shivam Kumar, a senior official with the lottery department in Maharashtra.
He said it is similar to the one in other states.
“We have already opened the lottery for limited entries.
We have limited entries for this lottery,” he said.
“We have limited entrants for the contestables lottery.”
The “contemptible” and other prizes are those that have to be proven by the government or by a judge.
The “contesting” and those “in the public interest” are those with which the government does not want to compete.
There are two types of entries: “limit” and lottery “contests”.
The limit entries are the ones with the highest odds and the lottery contests are the entries with the lowest odds.
The limit and lottery contests have a combined value of up the maximum amount of Rs 2 crore and the contestable entries, up to a maximum of Rs 10 crore.
The government’s decision to introduce “limit and contestable” lottery entries came as a surprise to many.
The lottery department had been mulling a lottery for some time and had been looking at various ways of attracting more people to the lottery, said a lottery official, who did not want his name shared.
The department had also planned to introduce a lottery with “limit, contestable, and limited entries” but was later told that it would not be allowed to do so.
“It’s a big gamble.
We are going to lose all our savings.
There are also huge risks involved,” he added.
The official said the government has set aside Rs 1 lakh for each lottery winner and has given it to the families of those who win the lottery prizes.
He did not specify how much the lottery has already paid to the family members.
