Usually, when you think of lottery games, you think of numbered balls being drawn at random. That is the case with the majority of games, but some lotteries try to be different. California Lottery is one such example. They have a lotto game that is totally unique and it is called Daily Derby.
Daily Derby is a mock horse racing game. To play the game, you pick which horses in a mock race will finish first, second, and third. As well, you pick the winning time for the horse that comes in first. The winning time could be anywhere between 1 minute, forty seconds to 1 minute, 49.99 seconds. Of course, no actual race takes place. Instead, California Lottery will randomly choose the results. You win the grand prize if you correctly choose the trifecta (pick the winning positions of the three horses) and correctly choose the winning time of the horse that places first. The grand prize could be anywhere from tens of thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The odds of winning the grand prize are 1-in-1.32-million. Those are pretty good odds for winning a lottery jackpot!
Daily Derby also offers lower tiered prizes. You can win prizes for correctly choosing the trifecta (minus the winning time), correctly picking the first two positions, correctly picking just the first position, and correctly picking just the winning time.
What I love most about this game is the fact that it is different and unique. It is based on a form of popular entertainment, horse racing, and turned into a lotto game. It is truly an innovative product from California Lottery.
So if you live in the state of California, be sure to try the unique Daily Derby lotto game. It costs $2 to play and the odds of winning are pretty good. You could also win some great prizes.
