Poland Lotto is the national lottery of Poland and is one of the most popular gambling games in the country. It is offered by the official state lottery organisation, who also provide keno, instant win games, and more. The Poland Lotto has existed since 1956 and is owned by the Polish State Treasury. It has changed a number of times over the years, including one big in 2011 when it was altered to suit modern lottery players and to help draw new players in from outside of Poland.
What is the Poland Lotto? A Poland Lotto ticket consists of 6 numbers from 1 to 49, with jackpots paid to players who match all numbers. There are three draws a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) and a ticket costs just 3 Polish Zloty, which is around $0.80 or €0.70, making it one of the cheapest national lotteries in Europe. There are a number of bonus games and additional lotteries available, including the Polish Lotto Plus and the Super Chance, both of which provide players with an extra chance to win big. The Super Chance costs an extra 2 Polish Zloty and essentially operates like a raffle, while the Polish Lotto Plus adds an extra 1 million Zloty to a player’s potential winnings. Poland Lotto Jackpots and Records The Poland Lotto has a minimum jackpot of 2 million Polish Zloty, which is around €460,000 or $530,000, deepening on exchange rates at the time of the draw. The largest ever Poland Lotto jackpot was 60 million Polish Zloty, or around $16 million USD and €14 million EUR. This jackpot smashed the previous record of 35 million by nearly double. The success of the Poland Lotto inspired the creation of the Mini Lotto, which is a reduced version that offers better odds and cheaper tickets, but also has smaller jackpots and second-tier prizes.
Poland Lotto Odds There are four prize tiers on the Poland Lotto, with players picking up prizes when they get just 3 numbers and with jackpots paid out to players who get all 6 numbers. The Poland Lotto jackpot odds are 1 in 13.9 million, which is nearly exactly 10 times smaller than the odds for winning the EuroMillions. These reasonable odds are one of the main reasons the Poland Lotto, and many other Polish games, have increased in popularity in recent years. The odds of winning the smallest prize on the Poland Lotto are 1 in 57, with the second prize returning odds of 1 in 54,000 and the third returning odds of 1 in 1,000.
Play Poland Lotto Online The Poland Lotto can be played by anyone, regardless of nationality or country of residence. The only requirement is that they are over the age of 18 and reside in a country where gambling, and lotteries in particular, are legal. Players who meet this criteria are able to play, win and collect, providing they can get their hands on a ticket. Physical Poland Lotto tickets are only available in Poland, where they are sold in countless locations, but virtual tickets can also be bought on many online lottery portals.
