operates according to the following rules.
The Quine or lottery can be played throughout the year.
A playmaker randomly pulls ball or tokens marked with a number from 1 to 90). To ensure the choice is truly random, balls or tokens are in an abacus or a bag. As soon as he pulls a number, the playmaker announces with a voice clear and audible to all, the number appearing on the token or ball.
Before the beginning of the game, players will have received or bought playing cards.
The cards are valid for the entire duration of the lottery. Each carton has a grid with three rows and nine columns. In the resulting cells, four in each row are empty while five have a number, so that each carton displays fifteen numbers.
Each player, at the announcement of the number pulled by the playmaker, checks whether one of its cards has the number drawn. If so, the player puts a chip on the corresponding cell.
The playmaker continues to draw numbers until one of the players has won.
If an entire row (five boxes) is filled with chips, then there is 'Quine '.
If 2 full rows are filled, there is “Double Quine” and if the three rows are filled, there is 'Carton '.
According to the rules of game described at the beginning of the lottery, the first player achieving a Quine, a Double Quine (two lines) or a Carton wins more or less valuable prizes, which are traditionally 'in kind' and can sometimes be of quite high value: for example a pig, purchase vouchers or a trip. This game of cards is often called `Loto’ but also ‘Quine’ or ‘Rifle’ depending on the region.
The "Royal" is played in the same way but with different cards. Only 3 lines (Carton) filled represents a win.
Never clear your cards before the playmaker announces the end of the game. Indeed, it is not uncommon (depending on the region) that the playmaker decides to pull an additional number. If in this draw a player fills 3 lines, then there is ‘Jackpot’.
