All entries received after the June deadline will be automatically entered in the "Summer" Jumbo Draw in August 2015.
The Japan Jumbo Draw is the largest and highest paying amongst all Japanese Takara-kuji ("treasure" or "fortune") Lotteries. In fact, with the exception of the Spanish El Gordo Draw, it's the biggest Lottery Draw in the world.
And it's a Draw very few people outside Japan ever have the chance to win.
Tickets in Japan's Jumbo Draws are sold exclusively by the Mizuho Bank for a limited time period before each draw. And because the Draws are so popular, Ticket sales stop as soon as all Tickets are sold… often before the announced sales period is over. This naturally leaves little opportunity for foreign players to take part. In fact, until 2003, entry into the Japanese Jumbo Lottery Draw has never before been offered to players living overseas.
