Hobo's Lucky Lotto is one of the developers' shops in Anthian City - Shopping District, opened by developer Hoboj03 on 19th April, 2017. Players can buy Lotto Tickets where they can earn random rewards based on how many numbers they can match on their ticket.
In the shop, players can draw a single free Lotto Ticket from Hoboj03 daily, receiving rewards depending on the lottery result. Players must save before the ticket will be drawn, in order to prevent players from rejoining for getting better prizes.
The lottery system is nearly identical to the Pokémon Lottery Corner in the core series games. The drawn Lotto Ticket contains a random number with 5 digits, then the lotto system searches all Trainer IDs of the Pokémon in the player's party and PC, but unlike in the main series, Pokémon deposited in Lagoona Day Care will also have their Trainer IDs scanned. The numbers match with the rightmost number of a Trainer ID and then move to the left, automatically picking the one with the closest match. Only the last 5 digits of the Trainer IDs are scanned. For example, if the Lotto Ticket is 12345, a Pokémon with Trainer ID of ***12345 in the player's possession will grant the jackpot, ****2345 gets the runner-up reward, while **123450 means a total loss.
Once the process is finished, Hoboj03 will reward the player an item or a certain amount of money based on how many numbers the best-match Trainer ID has matched. Prizes that have 2 items in the same level, like Latiasite and Latiosite, will be randomized. If the player is not satisfied with the prize offered, he or she can purchase 3 more Lotto Tickets per day. Each additional Lotto Ticket costs 15 Robux and requires the player to save like the initial free ticket as well.
To have a higher chance of winning prizes, players are recommended to trade in a lot of Outsider Pokémon from many different trainers, because if the player possesses a diverse list of Trainer IDs, it means a higher chance of Trainer IDs matching with a lotto ticket.
The rewards cycle every 3 days. If there are 2 prizes in the same reward level, specifically the runner-up prizes Latiosite and Latiasite, as well as the 2 Mewtwonites for the jackpot in Day 3, the player does not get both items at the same time — which one the player acquires is essentially a coin flip (50/50).
