## Expected prize calculation

Unlike some lotteries which pay out a fixed prize based on a number of matches (i.e. a fixed $50 for a ticket with 3 consecutive matches), we pay out a variable amount depending on the pool size (and for the jackpots on number of winning tickets). In the unlikely event of many fewer winning tickets than expected for a given week, each winner will receive a larger prize than expected. Similarly, in the unlikely event of many more winning tickets than expected for a given week, each winner will receive a smaller prize than expected.
