"The Hatos Lotto – Lottó 6 – Every Sunday from Szerencsejáték"
Current Jackpot 959,000,000 Ft
The earliest records of a Lottery in Hungary occur way back in 1763 with the first truly Hungarian Lottery being held in the former capital city of Buda in 1770. The Hungarian Royal Lottery Board was then created in 1868.
1947 saw Lotto Hungary introduce the Pools whilst in 1957 the Ötöslottó – Lottó 5 – was launched as a brand new Hungarian Lottery game and is still one of the most widely played lotteries across the whole of Hungary all these years later.
During the post world war 2 years the OTP Országos Takarék Pénztár – National Savings Bank – looked after the interests of all Lotto Hungary games until 1991 when Szerencsejatek was formed to be the administrator of the Hungarian National Lottery.
Szerencsejáték zrt is wholly owned by the Hungarian State and is entirely responsible for the creation and administration of all current games of Hungarian Lottery.
There are a wide variety of games offered by Szerencsejáték including the multi-national EuroJackpot, and the national games of Ötöslottó – Lottó 5 – Joker, Keno, Puttó, Luxor, Tippmix, Skandináv Lottó, Sorsjegy, Toto, GolToto plus the game of Lottó 6 – Hatos Lottó – that we concentrate on in this section...
The inaugural Hatos Lottó draw took place on October 29th 1988 with the first tickets being sold on October 7th. The game is also known as the Lottó 6 and – alongside the Ötöslottó – is the most popular Hungary Lotto available.
The Hatos Lotto was initially drawn with a dual matrix of 6/45 + 1 – using a Bonus number to determine prizes on the 2nd level for those who matched 5 winning numbers plus the Bonus number.
This changed in July 2007 when Szerencsejatek removed the Bonus number giving Hatos Lottó the format that it has today.
Szerencsejáték make the draw for the Hatoslotto once each week on a Sunday between 3.50pm and 4.15pm Budapest time.
November 1993 saw Szerencsejáték incorporate a Joker option to run alongside the Hatos Lotto. This provides many more opportunities to win prizes when playing the Hatoslotto.
Having looked at the Hungarian Hatos Lottó in depth here – we hope you may find it useful to read on and find out all about the game and how it operates...
The Hatos Lottó is drawn using a single lottery matrix of 6/45 – meaning that out of a number range of 1 to 45 – 6 winning lotto numbers will be chosen.
So – when you are playing Hatos Lotto – you will first need to make your own choice of 6 numbers out of that range of numbers from 1 to 45 and you will win the Hatoslotto jackpot if you successfully choose all 6 of the winning numbers drawn.
The Hatos Lottó jackpot commences at 60,000,000 Ft and grows in size for every draw that there is not a top prize winner. This rollover will make the jackpot prize rise for up to 1 year until such time as a winner has been produced.
If after 1 year of rollover draws a Hatos Lotto jackpot winner has still not been created – the top prize fund will then rolldown and be paid out amongst the next winning prize divisions.
When you play Hatos Lotto you can either pick lottery numbers yourself or use the Quick Pick/Lucky Dip option and have them
automatically chosen for you – just ask the computer or retailer to use their random number generator to do this on your behalf.
You also have the opportunity to use the Joker when playing Hatoslotto. This will provide you with even more chances of winning some of the great lottery prizes that are available.
The Hatoslottó Joker – which is drawn after the Hatos Lottó – is a number made up of 6 digits picked from a number range of 0 to 9.
To win on the Hatos Lottó Joker – your chosen Joker numbers will need to correctly correspond with any of the last 2, 3, 4, 5 or all 6 of the Joker numbers that have been drawn.
Just tick the box marked 'Joker' on the slip if you would like to play Hatos Lottó with the Hatos Lottó Joker additional game.
It costs just 225 Ft to play a standard game of Hatos Lotto and for the add-on game of Joker – the cost is just an extra 200 Ft.
In the past – to play any Hungary Lottery games including the Hatos Lottó – players had to be resident in Hungary itself to be eligible to buy Szerencsejáték lottery tickets.
Today – you can play Hatos Lotto from pretty much anywhere across the world through online lottery ticket sales organisations like TheLotter – who are licensed, certified and authorised to offer a worldwide lottery ticket purchasing service making things easier for players from abroad.
This is great news of course if you do not live in Hungary but would still like to take part in the games offered by Szerencsejatek or would just like to buy lottery tickets online conveniently in your own time and from the comfort of your own home.
