Lots Of Exciting New Jackpots At Lottoland
Lotteries Of The World Part One
As you may have noticed we've expanded the list of playable lotteries considerably in the first half of 2015, and we've got plenty more lotteries and games in the pipeline for the second half. Our aim at Lottoland is to give you as much choice as possible with all the world's best lotteries to play and a new jackpot to be won each day.
So in this series we're going to take a look at these exciting new lotteries in more detail to help you familiarise yourself with them more.
The World Is Lottoland
In case there was ever any doubt that Lottoland is the leading online lottery provider, here, to kick things off, are three new playable lotteries for players in Ireland; the UK Lottery, Brazil's exotic Mega Sena and the icy cool Swedish Lotto.
Our closest neighbour's lottery is also one of Europe's largest, with higher odds but also generally higher jackpots, than the Irish Lotto.
Pick six numbers from a range of one to 49. Match all six numbers to hit the jackpot. The odds of doing so are 13,983,816:1, higher than the Irish Lotto, but much lower than EuroMillions, which has jackpot odds of 116,531,800:1. (Note - as of October 2015 the lottery will be expanding its numbers from 49 to 59. This will increase the odds by a factor of three, though will also allow for much larger jackpots.)
The game costs €2.80 to play, so it's not one of our cheapest, for sure. Though the potential winnings far outweigh both the cost and the odds – €56.86 million is the record so far. There are also four other profitable prize tiers where you currently have overall odds of 54:1 of winning any prize.
If you want more details on the UK Lotto's odds, rules and prize structure, as well as a detailed head-to-head comparison with the Irish Lotto check out our previous post.

Mega Sena – From Brazil
Brazil's biggest national lottery has been generating lots of press recently due to its massive rolling jackpot – the biggest of the year so far – of €18.98 million! The massive jackpot was finally won on Sunday the 14th of June. And I'm sure whoever won it is still dancing the samba.
Readers will no doubt have noticed we covered the Brazilian lottery in detail in a recent post, so if you want to learn more head on over to that article.
To summarize quickly; Mega Sena is something of a cultural phenomenon in its native Brazil. It costs just €1.50 to play and has record jackpots of €43 million for regular draws and €83 million for its annual superdraw the Mega Da Virada.
To play you just pick numbers from 1 to 60 as you try to win from one of three prize tiers. The odds of hitting the jackpot are 50,063,860:1, which are quite high, but then generally so are the jackpots. Currently the Brazilian lottery jackpot stands at €9.5 million.

Lotto – From Sweden
Looking for a cheap and simple lotto where you can win big jackpots? Or are you instead looking for a more nuanced game that gives you great odds and lots of different chances to win prizes?
Either way then the Swedish Lotto is the game for you.
Just like the Irish Lotto, draws held twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There's a regular draw and then, straight after, a second Lotto 2 draw. The Swedish Lotto also has an added bonus game, the Drömvinsten, or "dream win", which you can also chose to play to maximise your chances of winning a cash prize. So overall the Swedish Lotto gives you get three chances to win big.
A simple 6-pick game costs just 50c or, with the Lotto2 game added (the default option), €1.00. The extra "dream win" game costs a minimum of €1.00, which is also added by default. We do this because it's how the game in Sweden is played. If we didn't do this our Swedish players would look at us funny - and Dolph Lundgren would get angry.
Unlike in Sweden, however, we give you the full freedom to choose which aspects of the game you wish to enable or disable. You can even up the ante on the bonus game to €3.00.
The Swedish Lotto is a 6/45 game with 5 prize tiers. The jackpot odds are 6,724,520:1, which is fairly good odds for a lottery. Overall you have a 55:1 chance of winning any prize – but of course these odds get better if you add the extra draw and bonus game to your ticket.
So, whichever way you want to go, cheap and cheerful, lucrative and elaborate, or anywhere in between, you'll find plenty to cheer about with the Swedish Lottery.
