Poland Lotto is one of Poland’s most popular lotteries—and it’s easy to see why. Not only is it a breeze to pick up and play (thanks to the use of a 6/49 matrix), the odds of winning aren’t bad at all. More than that, Poland Lotto also offers uncapped rollovers, which means, in theory, prizes can keep growing so long as no one wins the jackpot. Is this a lottery game worth diving into? Read on to find out!
About Poland Lotto
Operated by Totalizator Sportowy, which has been running lottery games since being granted by a license back in January 25, 1956, the Poland Lotto is one of the country’s most enduring lottery game. Introduced way back in 1957, it was originally known as Toto Lotek. For the next 16 years, it became the de facto lottery game in Poland.
In 1975, it changed its name to Duzy Lotek and it remained that way for a while, until it changed its name to Lotto Polska—or Poland Lotto—on October 9, 2009. Today, Poland Lotto is one of the most popular games in Poland.
Quick Poland Lotto Facts
 Easy, Familiar Mechanics: Poland Lotto is easy to pick up and learn as it utilizes the commonly used 6/49 lottery matrix.
 Rollover Lottery: Like a lot of lotteries in the industry, Poland Lotto jackpots grow in the event that no one wins the jackpot.
 Unlimited Growth: Unlike some lotteries, Poland Lotto’s rollovers don’t have caps. In other words, jackpots can simply grow until someone wins.
 TriWeekly Draws: Draws are held three times a week, every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
 4 Ways to Win: Poland Lotto offers four prize tiers—where the lowest tier can be won by only matching 3 numbers.
 Payouts are in Cash: All Poland Lotto prizes are paid out in lump sum.
How Does Poland Lotto Work?
The Basics
As previously mentioned, Poland Lotto utilizes the oftused 6/49 lotto matrix. For lottery veterans, understanding this lottery game should be a breeze. Newcomers don’t have to worry though; it’s quite easy to pick up and learn.
As the name suggests, players must choose 6 main numbers from a guess range of 1 to 49. Matching all 6 of the numbers means you win the jackpot, while matching less entitles you to secondary prizes.
Poland Lotto allows players to win in a total of four prize tiers, where the minimum requirement to win a prize is by matching at least 3 numbers. And because Poland Lotto is a triweekly lottery, that means you get the chance to win 3 times a week!
The Odds of Winning
Compared to some lotteries, the odds of winning in Poland Lotto aren’t that bad. In fact, when placed alongside bigger, more popular lotteries, like the New Zealand Powerball, the chances of winning are quite favorable. Check out the quick breakdown below:
Numbers Matched  Odds of Winning 
6  1 in 13,983,816 
5  1 in 55,491 
4  1 in 1,032 
3  1 in 57 
So What Happens if You Win?
All Poland Lotto prizes are paid out in cash—also known as a lump sum—and are taxed at around 10%, give or take. So, for those partial to annuity payouts (or even taxfree prizes, for that matter), this may not be the lottery for you.
But in the event that you did go for Poland Lotto and—as luck would have it—you won, there are a few guidelines that you need to follow. Such as:
 For winnings less than zł2,000: Winners may claim their prizes at any Poland Lotto retailer.
 For winnings beyond zł2,000: Winners must claim prizes at any branch of Totalizator Sportowy.
 Deadline: All winners must claim prizes within 60 days of the draw. Any prize that goes unclaimed after the deadline is deemed invalidated.
That being said, if you played Poland Lotto using an online lottery site, the process will be different. Some sites automatically transfer winnings into your account, so long as your prize doesn’t go above a certain threshold. For jackpots, most sites require you to be present to claim them (which means you’d most likely have to travel), while some—like LottoKings, for instance—can claim it on your behalf.
The Biggest Poland Lotto Winners
Thanks to the generally favorable odds offered by Poland Lotto, there have been big winners throughout the years. This is no US Powerball where jackpots growing to billions of dollars isn’t a surprise anymore, but because rollovers don’t have caps, the potential to win big money is there. Don’t believe me? Check out the biggest winners below:
