How do we receive drawn numbers?
The draw is held every day. It’s closed at 08:00 UTC. Numbers checking starts in 2 hours after the draw close.
The Bitplay Club Lottery uses a unique system to find the winning numbers. We take every even block from blockchain and based on its hash, height and hash of the previous block we calculate the drawn number according to the formula:
( crc32( md5( md5(<Previous Block Hash>) + md5(<Block Height>) + md5(<Block Hash>) ) ) MOD 36 ) + 1;
If the same number has drawn once again in this draw, we are waiting for the next even block. We repeat the even block selection till all 5 numbers are found.
- You can easily check the numbers on every draw by visiting blockchain.info website for blocks checking and following the above mentioned protocol.
- You can also check the drawn numbers using our calculator .
- Winning numbers and the game prizes can be found on the draw page of the lottery as well as in the "My tickets" section.
