About Ukraine Lotteries
There are two lottery operators in Ukraine – Molodsportloto (MSL) and the Ukrainian National Lottery (UNL). Each operator runs draw lotteries, instant win games, and other forms of gambling.
Games are unique between the two operators, but all their games are available nationwide. The older of the two companies, MSL, operates some of the older, more traditional games like Megalot.
Both MSL and the UNL are licensed and regulated by the state, so you don't have to worry about being scammed or cheated. Additionally, a portion of the cost of your tickets helps fund community projects and other worthy causes, so your money is being put to good use.
List of Ukrainian Lotteries
Below are some of MSL's most popular lotto games:
Ukraine Megalot is a bi-weekly lottery that features a rolling jackpot and pretty decent odds of winning.
To play, just pick 6 numbers from 1 to 42, plus an additional Megaball number from 0 to 9. If you match all the numbers, you take home the grand prize. There's also 7 other prize tiers for the taking.
Megalot drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday 8:50 PM.
Super Loto rules are super simple. All you have to do is pick 6 numbers from 1 to 52. There are no bonus balls in this game. If you match the numbers of the official draw, you win the jackpot.
Super Loto has drawings every Wednesday and Saturday evening at 10:50 PM.
