They square you points and give you a hundred different numbers they take that lowest number from that and that is your chance to draw. If the number is lower than everyone else’s then you draw that hunt. Numbers are based off 0-infinity and are completely random.

More points does equal "more names in the hat."I still agree that point systems are stupid and simply a way for the state to make more money. But the fact is more points does give you better odds of drawing.

If you got 100 numbers you have 100 times the chance of drawing as someone with only 1 number.
