Lotteries Around The World

People, all over the world, love playing the lotto. Whether its superstition, habit or optimism, we are hooked on playing the lottery. For just a few quid, we are able to enter our lucky lottery numbers and imagine our lives after winning huge amounts of cash. We will be able to spoil loved ones, buy a new home, car and travel the world.

We just have to take a look at the United States, where the total annual lottery sales have grown into the billions of dollars. In many countries, all it costs to take a chance on changing your life forever is just $1.  After all where else can you buy a dream for a dollar?

PlayHugeLottos.com has been in the lottery industry for over 15 years and are proud to offer the biggest and best lotteries from all over the globe. But, let’s take a look at some of the other lotteries, some much smaller but full of hope, dreams and the lotto lifestyle that comes with winning any of the lotteries around the world.

The Irish Lotto

There’s no better place than to begin with the Luck of the Irish. The Irish Lotto is played every Wednesday and Saturday evening. Establised in 1987, the Irish Lotto is never lower than €2,000,000.00 and winnings are paid out tax-free in a lump-sum.

How to Play

Players select six numbers from 1 to 45. If a player matches all six numbers they win the jackpot. Like most 6/49 lottery games, the Irish lotto also has a bonus ball which is the seventh ball and comes into play for lower tier wins.
 
Speaking about the Irish, a Northern Ireland woman who won €34 million on the Euromillions lottery, said she will be giving away a whopping €33million of her winnings.

Margaret Loughrey, EuroMillions winner

Margaret Loughrey said she plans to only keep €1.25 million from her winnings as she was unemployed before her windfall and knows exactly what others are going through. It’s for this reason that she’s been handing out money to help people in need as well as give her town a face-lift.  To date Margaret has parted with €17million.  Well done, Margaret!

The South African Lotto

Established in 2000, the South African National lottery is extremely popular. Gidani is the official license holder for the South African National Lottery.

How to Play

The SA Lotto is also a 6/49 game, where players select 6 out of 49 numbers to win the jackpot. Players need to match all 6 numbers drawn to win the jackpot.

Dutch Lotto

The Dutch Lotto is a typical lotto game too but this one has a slight twist that makes it ever so slightly different to the other lotteries around the world.

The Dutch Lotto draws take place once a week, on Saturday’s. On the last Saturday of every month, there are two separate draws though, giving players two separate chances to win the jackpot. This double draw is known as NL Lotto Super Saturday.

The jackpot starts off at a very tempting €7.5 million, and can roll over to some extraordinary amounts.

How to Play

To play the Dutch Lotto, players need to select 6 numbers from 1 to 45 followed by 1 extra number (Bonus Ball), out of a range of 1 to 6. Wondering about where the twist comes in?  The twist comes into play on the Bonus Ball. Unlike other lotteries, the Bonus Ball is not actually a number but a colour.
 
The Dutch Lotto Bonus Ball will be 1 of 6 colours drawn which are: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue or Purple.

To win the jackpot players will need to correctly match all of the 6 main lottery numbers PLUS the colour of the Bonus ball.
 
So choose a lottery, have some fun, and take a chance. You just might end up a millionaire!

Its good that almost every country has the lottery opportunity. This can be life-changing to the winners and if they are a little generous then many more people can benefit from their win.
