# KeNow Help & FAQ

You can win up to €1 million betting on this unique lottery draw that takes place every 4 minutes, from 5.34am until 10.54pm Irish time every day of the week. You can also win even if you don’t match any numbers! (You'll find more information on this plus all the prize tiers in the tables below.)

## How does KeNow work?

KeNow works just like any other lottery — you pick the numbers you think will be drawn and win a prize if you guess them correctly. The amount of money that you win is determined by the amount of numbers that you correctly guess.

The only difference is that, instead of waiting days for the next draw, KeNow draws take place every four minutes.

In each draw, 20 numbers are drawn from a total of 70. In any single ticket, players can choose anywhere between a single number and 10 numbers. The more numbers the player chooses and matches the higher the possible winnings.

## How does playing KeNow at Lottoland work?

Instead of entering the official KeNow Lotto draw, you place a bet on the outcome of it. You pick the numbers you think will be drawn in the same way as if you had entered the official lottery draw.

## How do I choose a line and buy a ticket?

Select from 1 to a maximum of 10 numbers you wish to bet on from a pool of 1-70 for each line bet. You can use the QuickPick feature to automatically choose 10 numbers you want to bet on. Another choice is to use the Random Selection feature within the betslip which will randomly select a given amount of numbers for you from 1-10.

You then need to choose how much you want to stake for each bet. You can choose a single stake for €1, or multiply it. The more you stake the more you win for each prize tier.

You can multiply a stake up to 10 times the amount and each stake amount costs €1 extra. The maximum prize also increases with each stake increase.

For example, a stake value of x1 on a line bet with 10 numbers costs €1 and allows you to win a maximum of €100k. A stake value of x2 with 10 numbers costs €2, for which you can win a maximum of €200k, and so on up to a maximum of x10, which costs €10 and allows you to go for the maximum €1,000,000 top prize.

**Possible winnings with x10 stake:**

## How do I choose less than 10 numbers?

Select each number in the slip individually or by using the QuickPick Random Selection function at the bottom of the betslip using the **Random Selection** feature. The following image shows an example of choosing 3 numbers using the Random Selection feature:

*Whichever amount of numbers you choose, this will constitute a single line.*

## How does the prize change with the amount of numbers you choose for each ticket?

The more numbers you choose, the higher the amount you can win. However, if you chose less than 10 numbers for a single line bet, you can win more for each tier of that amount of numbers.

The following example illustrates how this works using the example of choosing 10 numbers versus choosing 5 numbers.

If you choose 10 numbers in a single line bet, you can win a maximum of €1,000,000, but you will only win €20 if you correctly guess 5 numbers:

However, if you only choose 5 numbers in total in a single line bet, then you can win €1,000 if you correctly guess all 5, but this is the maximum that you can win for this bet:

So there is a trade-off between how many numbers you choose and the maximum amount of money you win for each prize tier.

## How much does it cost to play?

The cheapest possible line bet is €1 for a single stake and the most expensive is €10 for a multiple stake of x10. Each stake increase costs €1.

The amount of numbers you choose and the stake value determines the price for a line bet.

## How do I win the maximum prize of €1 million?

You need to match 10 of the 20 winning numbers and select a stake value of x10.

## How can I win a prize for not getting any numbers correct?

If you choose a maximum of 10, 9 or 8 numbers in any single line bet, you win a prize if you correctly guess 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or 0 numbers. You do not win any prizes for guessing 1, 2, 3 or 4 numbers.

## What are the odds of winning the €1 million top prize?

The odds of winning the top prize on this game are 1 in 2,147,181.
