How to Play Lotto-India

To play Lotto India, select six numbers between 1 and 50 and one Joker Ball between 1 and 5. Entries cost €0.50 (Rs. 39) per panel. You win prizes by matching your numbers with those randomly selected in the Lotto India draw; match all six numbers and the Joker Ball to win the jackpot.

The prize of €0.50 (Rs. 39) is awarded to any player who matches between two and five numbers. This allows the operators of Lotto India to give away a huge jackpot prize for a very low ticket cost. If you match between two and five numbers as well as the Joker Ball, you win €0.50 (Rs. 39) and the Free Bet Bonus.

You will be contacted by email if you win a prize, and also by telephone if you win the jackpot. Smaller prizes are paid directly into your online account, where you can choose to withdraw the money to your bank account or use it to purchase entries to future draws. The jackpot is paid by bank transfer after verification checks have been conducted.

Bumper Draws

Occasionally, Lotto India holds special Bumper Draws, in which the usual jackpot prize is boosted even higher, up to €5,000,000 (Rs. 39 crore). You enter Bumper Draws exactly the same way you would any standard draw, and tickets cost the same.

Bumper Draws aren’t scheduled for any specific date – they will be announced on the Lotto India website in advance. Bookmark the Media page to find out when the next Bumper Draw is due to take place.

The first ever Lotto india draw took place on Friday 14th June and was, itself, a Bumper Draw with a jackpot of €1,300,000 (₹10.12 crore).
