A five-digit game, also known as Pick 5, requires players to select five numbers. These games typically offer fixed payouts, regardless of the number of tickets sold. Some games offer a daily or weekly numbers game. Many contracts have a force-majority clause in place to protect players in the event that the lottery’s payouts do not meet expectations. In addition, players can pass on prize claims to other people if they do not win.

In the Netherlands, the oldest running lottery is the Staatsloterij, which was founded in 1726. The English word lottery is derived from the Dutch noun ‘lotterie’, which means “fate.”
