Does your nation have a lottery? No!
If not, Did it ever? And reason for ending it?

No. It has always been known that we Decepticons would be far too corrupt for us to run a successful lottery. People would surely bribe the officials to make their numbers come in. The officials, being proper Decepticons just like the rest of the people, would take the bribe of the highest bidder and rig the result without the slightest hesitation.

Bribery is a known method of practicing the Decepticon Way and is therefore legally enshrined as an activity that cannot be banned except in "extreme circumstances." Qualifying circumstances are along the lines of trading secrets to a national enemy. Rigging a lottery is not extreme.

Therefore, we have never had a lottery.

As a side note, we don't get rid of corrupt officials because we insist that our government people hold the same mindset and values as the rest of the populace. The populace is made up of conniving space pirates. Cop-like, anti-corruption, holier-than-thou types are our natural enemies - we certainly won't allow them in the government! Instead, our officials must protect the Decepticon Way at all costs, even though that means that we have to forego some things in order to keep from being brought to ruin by our own corruption levels (like simply not having a lottery or any kind of fiat currency, rather than trying to "stop fraud" in the usual ways).
No war RPs; no open RPs.

Does your nation have a lottery? There is no national lottery; the states of Coppland, East Jorgen, Trumpor, Oskhammer, and Zappora do, but East Jorgen, Trumpor, and Oskhammer use a common lottery system, while Coppland and Zappora have their own systems. The other states are still debating whether to have a lottery there but there is dispute over what the money should be used for and in some there is a general feeling that lotteries are not "real" gambling (especially in Southern Frenequesta which has its casinos on the Marshall Boardwalk in Neue Bayreuth, including The Easy Winners).
If not, Did it ever? And reason for ending it? (stop here if your nation never had nor has a lottery) Joplinia-Lambscott ran a lottery during the PDB era that was supposed to fill the gap made by lower taxes. It raised less money than we thought because people weren't winning enough, and when we reformed it to where winning was more likely, we had even less money from it. It was eventually seen as a failure and abandoned in 2200.

How many lottery games are you offering/did offer? The common lottery in East Jorgen, Trumpor, and Oskhammer has Pick-3, Pick-4, Pick-6, "Word Salad," (this complicated lottery draws words instead of numbers, based off of frequency in the English language, with rarer words having a higher potential payout (German, Chinese, and Equestrian versions have yet to be developed)), "MoneyMoneyMoney," and "Crazy Fortune" games. (That makes six.) Coppland and Zappora's systems are similar, but Zappora omits Pick-4 and has Pick-10, and Coppland does not have the "Word Salad" game and instead has "Symbols and Signs" (which is like word salad in the sense that it does not use numbers but mimics instead a slot machine). There are also periodic novelty lotteries that go in and out, but these six are the standards.
What is its/their starting jackpot? In the "MoneyMoneyMoney" game the jackpot starts at one hundred thousand new syncs; in the "Crazy Fortune" game the jackpot starts at one million new syncs. "Word Salad" has a jackpot that only pays out if the words drawn can form a coherent sentence, and that starts at ten thousand new syncs. Otherwise, it and all the other games pay fixed amounts.
Is there a maximum it can go before it can't go any higher? There is none.
What was the largest jackpot ever won in your nation? In Frenequesta proper one Dylan Waylon Wright won 120 million new syncs on the common system's "Crazy Fortune" game.
What is the minimum age to buy a ticket? Coppland and Zappora have theirs at 16, but only for the smaller games such as Pick-3 and Pick-4, otherwise the legal age is 18--and that is also the minimum age for all games in the common lottery of East Jorgen, Trumpor, and Oskhammer.
Is there a maximum age? If so, what age? No
Are only citizens allowed to buy tickets/claim prizes? No.
Are foreign visitors (tourists, diplomats etc) allowed to buy tickets/ claim prizes? Yes, though this might change soon due to some tax collection problems.
Can you buy/claim online? Yes, in fact it is the most common way.
Can you buy with a credit card/other non-cash methods? Yes, but there is a nationally-mandated 50% premium with a credit card so to discourage people from gambling on credit.
Is the lottery(ies)run by a government or private company? The common lottery used in East Jorgen, Trumpor, and Oskhammer are run by a semi-governmental corporation that is based in Ost Sempach, the capital of Oskhammer. Coppland recently privatized its lottery system (though it still has the largest equity ownership in the company that runs it) and Zappora's is run directly by the state.
Are your lotteries payed out in Annuity, Cash or either? Either for the larger games, for smaller lump-sum only.
Are lottery winnings taxed? There is a special tax for games larger than Pick-4, at 45% for lump-sum, 40% for annuity. Smaller games are counted as "wages and income" for some reason.
How often are the drawings (once a year, twice a year, twice a week etc)? The "pick" drawings are done every day; the "Word Salad"/"Signs and Symbols" games, the "MoneyMoneyMoney" game, and the "Crazy Fortune" games are drawn once a week.
What is the revenue used for? Education, Public Transport, and other public works are the most common.
Any other lottery facts about your nation that are worth mentioning? In the games with numbers, people not only pick the numbers but also may separately guess the average, median, mode (numbers are commonly replaceable) and standard deviation of the set of numbers and may also collect for guessing the average within one point, the standard deviation within one quarter of a point, and the median and mode exactly. These numbers do not need to be consistent with the numbers that the person has guessed. Only Zappora actually publishes the actual statistics--in the others it's left to the person to do the math once the drawing concludes, who then sends a claim to the lottery office.

Our nation has never had a lottery, primarily because the idea of unequally distributing income (particularly in a random, concentrated fashion) is viewed as putting apian thinking on its head.

Does your nation have a lottery? Yes, but it is not present everywhere. Some divisions do not allow lotteries. Most of them do, however.
If not, Did it ever? And reason for ending it? (stop here if your nation never had nor has a lottery) N/A

How many lottery games are you offering/did offer? There is one national lottery game, but millions of lotteries exist outside the national lottery system as each division can choose to have its own lottery alongside the national one. The national lottery game, Hekz, has a grid of 25 hexagons. For 25 days, a lottery player will scratch off a hexagon on the grid and reveal a hexadecimal digit (In Gelaneze, hexadecimal goes like so: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B E G H). Once all 25 digits are revealed, the lottery player goes to the national lottery website (http://www.hekz.gov.gel/) and types in the hexadecimal code from the lottery ticket, as well as an email address. At the end of that month, a short program will air on all TVs in Gelant showing the winning code and the winner is sent an email with a link to claim their prize money.
What is its/their starting jackpot? The jackpot starts at 1,000 Gulbe`i.
Is there a maximum it can go before it can't go any higher? Yes. It was instated one year when the government almost went bankrupt because the jackpot had somehow been raised to a whopping 1,000,000,000 Gulbe`i. No wonder the economy is crap right now. We set the limit for the jackpot at 100,000 Gulbe`i.
What was the largest jackpot ever won in your nation? See above.
What is the minimum age to buy a ticket? You must be at least 18 years old to purchase a lottery ticket.
Is there a maximum age? If so, what age? There is no maximum age.
Are only citizens allowed to buy tickets/claim prizes? With one exception, yes.
Are foreign visitors (tourists, diplomats etc) allowed to buy tickets/ claim prizes? Only foreign diplomats and citizens are allowed to purchase Hekz lottery tickets.
Can you buy/claim online? You can claim online, but you cannot purchase the tickets and play online.
Can you buy with a credit card/other non-cash methods? No. Due to the possibility of fraudulence, tickets must be bought with cash upfront, hence why you cannot purchase the tickets online.
Is the lottery(ies) run by a government or private company? The Hekz lottery is run by the national government. Other lotteries may be operated by division governments. Private companies are not allowed to run lotteries.
Are your lotteries payed out in Annuity, Cash or either? It depends on the size of the lottery and the amount of Gulbe`i in the national treasury.
Are lottery winnings taxed? Technically, yes. Once the jackpot is won, the winner can choose a certain amount of their winnings to put towards the next jackpot, but they cannot put more than the starting jackpot.
How often are the drawings (once a year, twice a year, twice a week etc)? Monthly.
What is the revenue used for? The revenue is put towards the national treasury.
Any other lottery facts about your nation that are worth mentioning? Nope.

Postby TURTLESHROOM II » Tue May 24, 2016 6:36 pm

How many lottery games are you offering/did offer?
There are countless private lotteries in TurtleShroom, and one technically state-run enterprise. The TurtleShroomer State Board of Gaming and Vice Lottery Institution (TSSBGVLI) is a private company chartered by the state in order to raise revenue for the state. (The TSSBGVLI is not the largest lottery in TurtleShroom, not by a long shot.)
Many private companies using the truck system have lotteries for their company stores, where the winner can receive actual shares in the company and enough Scrip (private currencies) to retire and live there without work.
One TSSBGVLI ticket costs two Skillets ($0.50 USD). Half of that is placed in the lottery trust, and the other half goes straight to the government. All other lotteries set their own rules and proportion into the trust versus personal revenue.


What is its/their starting jackpot?
It depends on the private company, but the TSSBGVLI starts at one hundred thousand Skillets ($25,000 USD).


Is there a maximum it can go before it can't go any higher?
The TSSBGVLI, in accordance with its bylaws, cannot have a jackpot exceeding one billion Skillets ($250,000,000 USD). There are no regulations on private lotteries.


What was the largest jackpot ever won in your nation?
The largest jackpot in TurtleShroom was two billion seven hundred thousand twelve Skillets ($500,175,003 USD).


What is the minimum age to buy a ticket?
There is none.


Are only citizens allowed to buy tickets/claim prizes?
No, but tourists' and foreigners' winnings are subject to tariffs if the money is shipped out of the country.


Are foreign visitors (tourists, diplomats etc) allowed to buy tickets/ claim prizes?
See above.


Can you buy/claim online?
No. Paper only.


Can you buy with a credit card/other non-cash methods?
Some truck system companies maintain a lottery in Scrip (see first question), but otherwise, no, it's all in cash.


Is the lottery(ies)run by a government or private company?
See the first question.


Are your lotteries payed out in Annuity, Cash or either
It is the choice of the winner, or dictated in accordance with the bylaws of the lottery in question.


Are lottery winnings taxed?
Yes. All income is taxed at not more than ten percent flat. (The income tax rate fluctuates on an index based on the amount of government spending at any given time. If it ever exceeds ten percent, any further taxation readings on the NS Canon's statistic page indicates a sales tax on consumption.)


How often are the drawings (once a year, twice a year, twice a week etc)?
It depends entirely on the bylaws of the lottery company. The TSSBGLVI runs quarterly, but if it cannot draw winners by the second quarter, it begins to draw daily until a winner is shown. All other lotteries set their own rules.


What is the revenue used for?
The TSSBGLVI revenue is used both for the general expenses of the state and various donations to secular charities, as well as helping to fund the mental health system.

Does your nation have a lottery? There are multiple lotteries run by several regional lottery companies. These companies are publicly owned as Crown Corporations and are expected to create profits and minimize costs. Profits are used to fund social programs, notably (and perhaps ironically) gambling, drug, sex, and alcohol addiction programs, and to sponsor cultural events and museums. (OOC: think Loto-Quebec and other Canadian lotto companies)
How many lottery games are you offering/did offer? Hundreds.
What is its/their starting jackpot? Game dependent. The largest game is Maxolotto, a national number draw game operating on a 6-49 principle. Jackpots start at 15 million libra (just shy of U$5 million) and climb by a mimimum of 10 million libra if there is no winner, though sometimes climbing by more if ticket sales generate enough revenue.
Is there a maximum it can go before it can't go any higher? Game dependent. For Maxolotto, the maximum is 200 million libra. At 150 million libra, Millimax jackpots of 3 million libra are added, with one extra Millimax for every 5 million libra increase in the main jackpot, to a maximum 10 Millimax jackpots.
What was the largest jackpot ever won in your nation? The full 200 million Maxolotto
What is the minimum age to buy a ticket? 18
Is there a maximum age? If so, what age? No
Are only citizens allowed to buy tickets/claim prizes? Citizens and permanent residents may purchase and claim. The ticket must be purchased in Ventalia.
Are foreign visitors (tourists, diplomats etc) allowed to buy tickets/ claim prizes? They are technically allowed to purchase since it is largely impossible to prevent. Claiming, however, may only be done by a citizen or permanent resident of Ventalia. Of course a foreign winner could become a citizen/resident and then make the claim, as most winning tickets do not expire for at least a year after the draw.
Can you buy/claim online? Tickets may be purchased online for most lotteries. Only online purchases may be claimed online, though amounts over 1800 libra must be claimed in person.
Can you buy with a credit card/other non-cash methods? Yes
Is the lottery(ies)run by a government or private company? As mentioned earlier, lotteries are run by a series of regional Crown Corporations.
Are your lotteries payed out in Annuity, Cash or either Game dependent.
Are lottery winnings taxed? Though the winnings themselves are not taxed, any forms of income generated from them (ex. interest/capital gains) are taxable. Winnings themselves may not be transferred via wills and unspent winnings are awarded to the government, though property and financial instruments purchased with winnings may be transferred via wills.

  • Ionadh Míosa ( Monthly Wonder ): purchaser buys a ticket with number ranging from 00000 to 99999, costs Ł 25 ( NS$ 30.73 ).

What is its/their starting jackpot? Ailíni 11 has a minimum jackpot ( all 11 numbers in order ) of Ł 500 000 ( NS$ 614 650 ), Clib 6's jackpot starts at Ł 1 000 000 ( NS$ 1 229 300 ), the jackpot for Rogha Mór ( 10 of 10 numbers matched ) has a minimum set at Ł 1 000 000 ( NS$ 1 229 300 ), the Náv Millani jackpot ( all chosen numbers matched ) begins at Ł 70 million ( NS$ 86.051 million ), and an exact number match in Ionadh Míosa awards a minimum of Ł 500 000 ( NS$ 614 650 ).

Is there a maximum it can go before it can't go any higher? No.

What was the largest jackpot ever won in your nation? The largest total jackpot won was a Náv Millani jackpot won on 19 Briviaya 2715 ( January 19, 2014 ) valued at Ł 3.897 billion ( NS$ 4.79 billion ) and was split between 5 winners for individual winnings of Ł 779.4 million ( NS$ 958.1 million ) before taxes. The largest individual winning was a Náv Millani jackpot on 20 Liviaya 2716 ( October 10, 2015 ) of Ł 1.887 billion ( NS$ 2.32 billion ) before taxes.

What is the minimum age to buy a ticket? Ailíni 11 can be purchased at 16, Clib 6 and Rogha Mór at 18, and Náv Millani and Ionadh Míosa at 21.

Is there a maximum age? If so, what age? No.

Are only citizens allowed to buy tickets/claim prizes? Citizens or residents for longer than 6 months are allowed to buy all tickets and claim all prizes.

Are foreign visitors (tourists, diplomats etc) allowed to buy tickets/ claim prizes? Diplomats and short-term residents are allowed to buy tickets and claim prizes for all lotteries but Náv Millani. Tourists can buy tickets for Ailíni 11, Clib 6, and Rogha Mór, and can claim all prizes, but top prizes are capped at Ł 2.5 million ( NS$ 3.073 million ) with any excess donated to an international charity of the winner's choice.

Can you buy/claim online? Tickets can be bought online. All prizes below Ł 50 000 ( NS$ 61 465 ) can be claimed online as well.

Can you buy with a credit card/other non-cash methods? Purchases can be made with non-cash methods, but purchases made with any form of credit are charged 70% extra to discourage gambling on credit.

Is the lottery(ies)run by a government or private company? All government-sanctioned lotteries are run by the government. Private companies may hold their own lotteries, but any advertisements for them must carry a notice that the lottery is not an official Cártányne national or state lottery.

Are your lotteries payed out in Annuity, Cash or either? Prizes below Ł 100 000 ( NS$ 122 930 ) are paid out in cash, less taxes. Prizes above that threshold are offered the option of an annuity paid out in 25 yearly installments bearing 1.75% interest annually, with each installment taxed, a cash option with 30% withheld before taxes, or a mixture of both in 5% increments ( i.e. a winner could choose to place 65% of his or her winnings in the annuity and withdraw the other 35% in cash ).

Are lottery winnings taxed? Yes, at the flat income tax rate ( 17.875% ).

How often are the drawings (once a year, twice a year, twice a week etc)? Ailíni 11 and Rogha Mór are drawn on every weekday (Fireday, Earthday, Windsday, Watersday, Spiritday, and Lifeday). Clib 6 is drawn on Earthday, Watersday and Lunaday, and Náv Millani is drawn on Windsday and Solarday. Ionadh Míosa is drawn on the first of every month.

What is the revenue used for? Revenues from lottery sales are placed into the Cártányne Education Fund.

Any other lottery facts about your nation that are worth mentioning? An interesting quirk of the Cártányne lotteries is that people can add to the jackpots without buying a ticket. This is because of the lottery administration's Booster Charity Fund (BCF), which people can donate to, and which the cash-option winnings withheld are added to. 30% of the BCF at the end of each month is divided between the 5 national lotteries, while the other 70% is donated to national and international charities. The BCF raised nearly Ł 1.175 billion ( NS$ 1.444 billion ) for charities in 2715.
