## 10. ODDS OF WINNING

---|---|

6/6 | One in 13,983,816 |

5/6+ | One in 2,330,636 |

5/6 | One in 55,492 |

### Gold Ball Draw

The odds of winning a prize in any Gold Ball Draw are one out of the total number of Gold Ball Draw Numbers issued for that draw. The odds for the holder(s) of the ticket bearing the winning Gold Ball Draw Number of winning the Gold Ball Jackpot depends on the number of prize balls available for that Gold Ball Jackpot Draw. For example, if there are 30 prize balls available for the draw, the odds of winning the Gold Ball Jackpot are 1 in 30. If there are 2 prize balls available for the draw, the odds of winning the Gold Ball Jackpot are 1 in 2.

^{(1)} There will be thirty prize balls available to be drawn for the first Gold Ball Jackpot Draw. Twenty-nine of the prize balls will be for a prize of $1,000,000 each and one Gold Ball will be for a jackpot prize (the “Gold Ball Jackpot”). The starting amount of the Gold Ball Jackpot will be set by ILC at its discretion and revealed before the draw date. One prize ball will be drawn for each Gold Ball Jackpot Draw, including for the first Gold Ball Jackpot Draw and all subsequent Gold Ball Jackpot Draws. Each time a $1,000,000 prize ball is drawn, it will be removed from the subsequent Gold Ball Jackpot Draws, until the Gold Ball is drawn. If the Gold Ball is not drawn, the subsequent Gold Ball Jackpot will increase by an amount determined by ILC, at its discretion. Once the Gold Ball is drawn, twenty-nine $1,000,000 prize balls and one Gold Ball will be available to be drawn for the subsequent Gold Ball Jackpot Draw and the preceding process will be repeated.

^{(2)} If there is no winning selection in any one or more of the 6/6, 5/6+, 5/6 or 4/6 categories of a Classic Draw, the amount of the Prize or the Pool, as applicable, for each of those said categories for which there is no winning selection for that draw will be allocated to the funding of prizes for subsequent Classic Draws and/or Gold Ball Jackpot Draws, at ILC’s discretion.

^{(3)} “Share of $5,000,000” means an amount calculated by dividing $5,000,000 by the number of winning selections in the 6/6 category.

^{(4)} “Share of Pool” means, with reference to each category of winning selections in the 5/6+, 5/6 and 4/6 categories, an amount calculated by dividing the dollar amount of the Pool, for that category, by the number of winning selections in that category.
