The 5 Houses Drawing is a lottery system unique to Mordel.Net that allows for users to purchase lottery tickets which allow them a chance at winning the jackpot. The drawing to determine if there are any winners occurrs every Friday evening at 10pm Eastern time. Each House (Free Worlds League, Lyran Alliance, Draconis Combine, Federated Commonwealth and Capellan Confederation) is assigned a number between 1 and 6; inclusive. The same number can be drawn for multiple Houses. To win the jackpot, you must have purchased a ticket with the correct number for each of the Houses. The payout and chances of winning are as follows:
  • 5 Correct (1:7776) - Current Jackpot (minimum of 500 Credits)
  • 4 Correct (1:311) - 100 Credits
  • 3 Correct (1:31) - 10 Credits
  • 2 Correct (1:6) - 1 Credit
  • 1 Correct (1:2) - 0 Credits
  • 0 Correct (1:2) - 0 Credits
There are two ways to purchase tickets. You can either select the numbers for each House manually, or you can enter the number of tickets you wish to purchase and click on the Quick Pick button. A Quick Pick will randomly select the numbers for each house for you. Each ticket you purchase costs 1 Credit. Winners of any prize amount will be notified via Site Message of what they have won.

To offset administrative costs, a percentage of credits from each ticket purchased will be withheld from the jackpot.
