Draw Games

Totem Lottery Lotto Draw GamesTotem Technologies is a proud vendor to Native Lands Lottery, the first private national lottery draw game.

Historically, the random number selection for online games was conducted by use of a ball hopper or blower. Today, many online games use random numbers generated by independent computer systems. Totem's systems support both means of number generation depending upon the particular style and technical needs of each game. For large jackpot games played on a nightly, semi-weekly, or weekly basis, consumers typically prefer a ball-draw game executed live, telecast and webcast, using a ball hopper or blower. For games such as keno and digit games which may be played once per minute, the number generation process is usually performed by computer and displayed through TV/computer monitors in the areas where the game is played.

Unlike scratch tickets, the primary attraction of online games is the introduction of jackpot rollovers. Whereas instant games are pre-printed and predetermined to distribute the full value of their payout schedule, online games are not predetermined and will naturally generate unpaid prize pools. These pools are typically aggregated into the jackpot prize. A direct correlation exists between the growth curves of consumer play and jackpot growth. Online games are most often played across state lines. Unlike the state-based lotteries, no state legislative permission is needed to engage in cross-state selling or participation in a multi-state game jackpot. To play, the consumer picks a series of numbers and in some cases a multiplier ball. A drawing occurs, usually weekly, in which random numbered balls are chosen. Those that picked numbers that matched the drawn balls win the cumulative jackpot that was collected across all participating states.

Scratch Games

Totem Lottery Scratch Ticket GamesTotem Technologies designs and produces scratch games for both new and licensed intellectual properties and brands.  Our scratch games are played in both lottery and advertising markets.

In cooperation with global printing partners, Totem Technologies can deliver printed scratch games to any location, in any country, at any time.  Our fully-computerized, in-line web presses can handle both high volume and sample volume orders on demand.

Totem Technologies currently has 10 instant games (also referred to as an instant ticket, scratch card, scratch off, scratch ticket, scratcher, scratchie, scratch-it, scratch game, scratch-and-win, or instant lottery) which are played on small tickets, usually made of heavy paper stock and ranging from 2”x4” to 6”x4” in size, which contain one or more areas with concealed information covered by an opaque substance that can be scratched off. When the ticket is scratched, the consumer has the opportunity to win cash, a prize of a specific value, or sometimes a replacement ticket. Instant games are played from a set of predetermined outcomes. However, the order in which winning tickets appear within any one set of tickets is determined randomly under a highly-secured printing process. Because winning tickets are predetermined, the computerized method of randomizing a set of finite ticket outcomes is done in such a way that not even employees of the printing process are able to determine which tickets might be the winners. The amount wagered on an instant game is typically a denomination of local currency, because most lotteries require cash payment of wagers. In the United States, common wagers are $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20. Some other denominations have been tried but remain small-volume games.
