A hot air balloon, operating as Otto's Lotto, can be seen serenely floating between the Main Island and Distant Marsh in the Archipelago. Selecting the balloon will offer the Trainer several options, the most important being the lottery itself. Going to the balloon can also be done through the button at the bottom-right of the main screen, or by pressing the button from either Campaign Map mode, or from the Sigil Campaign. These button's displays will always toggle between a Gem, a Gift Chest and a Five-Card Pack.
The function of Otto's Lotto is to give Trainers an opportunity to spin the lottery wheel and win various resources in exchange for watching advertisement videos. There are five different wheels, offered in random order after every spin, that determine which prizes are spun for. Each prize wheel is divided into five sections, with each section representing a different prize. The prize sections vary in size, giving greater chances of getting certain prizes while decreasing the odds of getting others.
The Lotto will offer higher amounts of a particular type of reward on some occasions (usually double). Otto's Lotto may include special items relating to events, such as Divine Tickets, for the duration of the Divine Island or other large events.
Upon accessing the balloon, pressing the button under the representative wheel will play a video, after which the game will automatically spin the wheel. The Trainer can watch another video through the button after each spin is complete. If a video has been watched but the wheel has not been spun, the button for watching a video is temporarily replaced by the button until it is spun. When no videos are available to watch, the notice will be shown under the wheel.
The wheel ratios are as follows:
Each wheel can be divided, imaginarily, in 30 equal parts, separated by gray circles on their edges. One fraction represents 1/30th of the whole wheel, which is, approximately, 3.3% of it. In order to calculate the probability (%) of receiving a certain prize, one must look into how many parts of 30 the prize falls into and translate it to parts of 100. Example: on Wheel 1, a Fury Essence is one of the rewards offered. Its fraction, shown in red, takes 1.5 of the 30 parts. It can be translated to parts of 100 or percentage with a simple cross-multiplication, resulting in 5% (100*1.5/30=5).
Some values have been rounded for practical purposes.
Otto's Lotto Week
Otto's Lotto Week is a time-limited occasion, usually lasting a week, in which each wheel spin has a chance of giving 1 or more Dragon Pieces for a certain Dragon. During this week, the Dragon is also obtainable through promotional card packs in the Main Shop. Whenever Dragon Pieces for a Dragon are available in the lottery, the icon, with the Dragon's image inside it, will be displayed above Otto's Lotto. The button's display will also toggle between the Dragon's image in addition to the regular prizes.

Aside from the lottery, videos can also be watched in order to receive a Gift Chest or/and a One-Card Pack. As the chest is the same one from the Enchantment League menu and the pack is the same one from the Main Shop menu, a 6-hour period of time and a 12-hour period of time, respectively, must pass before another Gift Chest and another One-Card Pack, respectively, can be obtained in exchange for watching videos. During the period of time any of the aforementioned items are unavailable, the respective shops can be alternatively accessed from here through the button under the snapshots of said items.
Additionally, the Trainer can temporarily access shops which have items on sale. At the bottom of the screen, the Trainer can navigate through these shops and then access any of them through the button.
