In the UK 6/49 game, rollovers are capped at three. If there are no jackpot winners then, the jackpot funds not paid out are added to the existing fund for the second tier prize (bonus) and then shared by the various winners. In all the draws so far, the rollover has never reached this fourth rollover. 3 These cases are favorable to the unpopular numbers hypothesis; among other things they correspond to the Canadian and UK games in which the winnings are paid up front (not over twenty or more years as in the US) and tax free (unlike in the US).

We discuss later various Kelly fractions and how to utilize them wisely but for now, we will just focus on half Kelly.
