One of the most common is the so-called "club jar," nicknamed the "cookie jar. " Each game is sealed in a manila envelope. The tickets are sometimes dumped into a jar, hence the name. Each ticket contains four digits, ranging from 0001 to 1600, giving a player four chances to win with each $1 ticket.
