How does playing the Swiss Lotto at Lottoland work?

Instead of entering the official Swiss Lotto draw, you place a bet on the outcome of it. You pick the numbers you think will be drawn in the same way as if you had entered the official lottery draw. At Lottoland, you win the same prize money for each prize tier that the official lottery operator offers, including the jackpot, and you receive your prize money as if you had actually bought a ticket for the the official lottery.

How do I play?

Choose 6 numbers from the main pool of 1–42 and a further bonus number from 1–6.

You can also select the QuickPick option (Quick+1) and this will choose a line for you randomly. Once you have chosen your numbers, select which draw you want to bet on, either Wednesday or Saturday, and press ‘Submit’. This will take you through to a checkout – at this stage just click ‘Confirm and proceed’ to submit your ticket.

How do I win the Jackpot?

You will win our jackpot if your 6 main numbers and bonus number are the same as those in the official Swiss Lotto draw.

How does the DoubleJackpot feature work?

The DoubleJackpot feature allows you play for twice the official lottery jackpot. So, for instance, if the official Swiss Lotto draw is €5m and you bet on the outcome with us and activate the DoubleJackpot feature, you can potentially win €10m. The prizes for all other tiers will remain the same.
