The lotto-lottery system consists of numbers from one to forty nine and when the lotto is done on a weekly basis usually on a Saturday and Wednesday, six numbers are chosen including the bonus ball.
The number balls are placed in rows that are released once a qualified charter accountant is present and presses a button to release them. They are then mixed together by a blower system and five numbers are first selected and lastly the bonus ball is selected. The selection of the balls are approximately two or three seconds apart.
Once the lotto draw is done then the lotto plus is done, which is on a wednesday and saturday. The powerball lotto-lottery is usually done on a wednesday night after the lotto and lotto plus.
