X is a „spectator as a mindreader” type of routine where the spectator is able to reveal the country that the performer is thinking of. X uses no gimmicks at all just a pen and a paper.
Lotto is a stage routine that involves 5 spectators on stage. In this routine the performer predicts 5 freely selected numbers by the spectators. There is nothing written down and the prediction is in full view at the entire time and as an additional kicker you can reveal a joker number that was thought of by a 6th spectator.
