How does the game work?
With each drawing, two machines are used, each with a number of balls inside of them. The balls are mixed around by two rotating arms. After a brief period, five balls drop through a hole at the bottom of these machines. The first five winning numbers can be seen printed on these balls. The other machine will throw out the ball with the final lucky number printed on it. Together, these make up the six winning numbers.
To play the game, you must choose five numbers between 1 and 70 and one additional number between 1 and 25.
