Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM TO CONDUCT A BONUS GAME THAT LINKS SEPARATE PRIMARY LOTTERY GAMES
Abstract:
A system and related methods for conducting a bonus game to a first primary game that enhances sales of tickets in an unrelated second primary game includes establishing the first primary game wherein players are issued first game tickets for play of the first primary game. A bonus game is established that is played separate from the first primary game. To qualify for entry into the bonus game, players enter at least one first game ticket from the first primary game. A second primary game is established wherein players are issued second game tickets that are linked to the bonus game for the first primary game such that players enhance the prize awarded in the bonus game by entering the second game tickets into the bonus game. Play of the first primary game does not require play of the bonus game or the second primary game. Play of the second primary game does not require play of the first primary game or the bonus game. Play of the bonus game requires play of the first primary game but not the second primary game.
