List of Poland Lottery Games
Here’s a sampling of Poland’s biggest lottery games. You can learn more about each game by clicking on the corresponding link. You’ll also find a handy drawing schedule in the succeeding sections below.
With a straightforward 6/49 lotto matrix, Poland’s Lotto game is one easy lottery to get into. To enter the drawing, just pick 6 numbers from 1 to 49. If you match the numbers of the official draw, you win the jackpot! There are 4 prize tiers in total, and the odds of winning are pretty decent – 13,983,816 to 1 for the jackpot.
Lotto has drawings three times a week, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, at 9:40 PM in the evening.
An even more simplified iteration of lotto, Mini Lotto offers better odds but unsurprisingly smaller prize amounts. Players have to choose just 5 numbers from a more modest range of 42 numbers.
Mini Lotto has daily drawings every night at 9:40 PM.
A transnational lottery that is playable in over a dozen countries, Eurojackpot is a definite crowd favorite partly due to its much larger jackpots. However, even with many more millions up for grabs, the game still manages to be one of the easier lotteries to win.
The odds are much better, especially when compared to some of the larger lotteries today. There are also a total of 12 prize tiers available, so your overall odds of winning are greatly improved. It’s almost as if the game was designed to be easily won. Whatever the case, it’s one you shouldn’t miss.
Eurojackpot has drawings every Friday at approximately 8:00 PM.
