A numbers game is a lottery-style form of wagering whereby the winner receives their share from an aggregate pool of total bets. While lotteries are operated by governments, numbers games tend to be run privately or commercially by private individuals and businesses. Bettor can choose either single numbers or groups of numbers to bet on; prizes will then be distributed according to how many matching ones have been picked out of play – such as betting on stock index closing numbers or bingo game ball counts.

For example, American lotto jackpot odds are estimated to be 1 in 13,983,816! Even if you do win big though, any prizes must still be split among winners which reduce profits considerably.
