Lotteries are outlawed by some governments, while others endorse it to the extent of organizing a national or state lottery. Lotteries come in many formats. For example, the prize can be a fixed amount of cash or goods. In this format, there is a risk to the organizer if insufficient tickets are sold. More commonly the prize fund will be a fixed percentage of the receipts. A popular form of this is the "50–50" draw where the organizers promise that the prize will be 50% of the revenue. Many recent lotteries allow purchasers to select the numbers on the lottery ticket, resulting in the possibility of multiple winners.
