The lottery is a optional little side game found in Dragon Warrior II. You will need a lottery ticket, which can be received most easily from merchants. If you buy more than one thing, they more often than not, will give you a ticket.
Some monsters will randomly drop tickets as well for you to get. Also there are tickets found in treasure chests at Charlock Castle, as well as Cave to Ronne.
