How to Play Big Sweep

Big Sweep is the only lottery game that gives you two ways to win. The first one is scratch and match while the second one is the main draw.

In the main draw, every ticket has a unique set of 7-digit numbers pre-printed on it. The numbers range from 1,000,000 to 7,999,999. In addition, there is a jackpot number that starts from 0 to 9. In each draw, Big Sweep gives players an opportunity to win lots of prizes.

There is a jackpot prize of Rm 500,000 that is allocated per draw. If the jackpot amount is not won, it is rolled over to the next draw and the cycle continues until it is finally won.

In the scratch and match, you are supposed to match the outcome of the scratch against a combination of 3-digit numbers together with the image of a car that is predetermined. In each draw, there are 1, 195, 477 prizes to be won. All the prizes are instant and cash based. In each draw, you can win a new Honda HR-V 1.8L E.

The ticket has two sections; the main draw section and the scratch and match section. On the main draw section, there are two sets of numbers, the 7-digit number, and the jackpot number. There is also the draw date indicated as well as the draw number. On the scratch and match section, there is only the scratch area that reveals the numbers and the car and determines whether you have won a prize or not.

Main Draw

As pointed out above, each ticket has a 7-digit number which ranges from 1 to 7. To win, players must match the last 6 digits on their tickets with the numbers that are drawn.

Each of the 7-digit winning tickets has the opportunity to win in more than one prize category if it is matched with another 7-digit or another front 4-digit or last 3-digit numbers. If you match the front 4 digits, you win a prize in that category.

Scratch and Win

In this space, you are supposed to scratch the area indicated in the ticket so that you can reveal the result. After that, you match the ticket results with the winning number stated. Each of the main scratches has 9 numbers and the vehicle that awaits the lucky winner. If you match all 9 numbers against the designated winning number, you get the vehicle.

However, it is also important to emphasize that you can win a prize in the scratch-and-win category if you can match even one number against the predetermined winning number. For the bonus scratch, you are supposed to scratch the designated area on the ticket in order to reveal the prize. Usually, the prize on offer in the bonus scratch ranges from Rm 2 to Rm 500. The prize structure can be found on the reverse side of the ticket.
