This ticket guessed the combination correctly.
When a player takes a winning ticket to the Lotto Girl:
- Winning ticket takes all the jackpot (in case there are multiple winning tickets with the same sheltom combination, the jackpot is evenly divided by the amount of winning tickets)
- Winning tickets can be traded in at Lotto Girl by anyone at any time (winning tickets never expire).
- At the end of each draw, the jackpot is always reset back to 25kk (added by the server), regardless of winners or not
In case the player can't carry the jackpot gold in his inventory because he doesn't have the gold bag or whatever reason, a pop-up message appears on top of the screen:
"You can't carry this much gold in your inventory at the moment."
- Winning tickets are removed from the inventory when traded in at Lotto Girl.
- Non-winning tickets simply expire (as shown in one of the images above). These cannot be given to Lotto Girl. Players can drop or NPC them to get rid of them, if they wish.
Furthermore, the Lotto Girl also keeps track of every draw for the past 60 days. Players can see it by pressing the "History" button on the main window. This is what the History looks like:
- The "shining" effect on the chest rotates counter-clockwise and it fades in and out every once in a while. It can also be scaled up to its normal size when fading in and scaled down to a tiny size when fading out, although that's not necessary.
Enjoy rPT! ^^
