Lottery games in Croatia have been recorded as far back in time as 1762 in Zagreb with modern day type Croatian lotteries being operated and organised since October 1945 when the first drawing of the Yugoslav Lottery took place in Belgrade.
The Directorate for Croatia was formed as part of the Yugoslav Lottery in 1951 & on May 15th 1960 Sports Forecasting launched.
The Loto 7 game was introduced on January 3rd 1962 and is still going strong today. Srećke (Luck) was also launched at this time.
On July 25th 1973, the Croatian Lottery – Lutrija Hrvatske – became an independent organisation but remained a part of the overall umbrella of the Yugoslav Lotteries (the Business Union of Yugoslav Lottery Organisations). Loto, Instant Lottery, Express Lottery, Tombola, Bingo were introduced by the Croatia Lottery.
When Croatia became an independent country from Yugoslavia in 1993 the name of the organising company was changed from Lutrija Hrvatske to what we know today – Hrvatska Lutrija – and the range of Croatian Lottery games was expanded even further to include Keno, TV Bingo and Casinos in addition to other games.
In 2010 Htrvatska Lutrija began to offer its lottery players the chance to buy lottery tickets online via its website lutrija hr and in February 2013, the Croatian Lottery then joined the multi-national EuroJackpot group of countries to offer the Euro Jackpot lottery right across Europe. It had been first launched in March 2012.
The aim of Hrvatska Lutrija is to raise monies for various projects throughout Croatia, thus improving many aspects of life, whilst at the same time offering people right throughout the country the opportunity to take part in fun and exciting games of chance.
Hrvatska Lutrija is a member of both the Association of European State Lotteries and the World Lottery Association and adheres to their strict codes of conduct whilst at the same time upholding their values and standards in relation to responsible gambling.
Players from across the world are able to buy lottery tickets online for the EuroJackpot from the comfort of their own homes, with the help of online lottery ticket concierge companies like TheLotter.
You will see below, a brief summary of all the principal games offered by Loto Hrvatska. A much more detailed description can be found by clicking on the relevant link and you can also visit our World Lotteries page for a complete list of all the major lottery games from around the world and see how each one works.
The biggest multi-national European lottery game in terms of reach is the EuroJackpot. This was launched initially by 7 separate countries across Europe on March 17th 2012 as a rival to the hugely successful EuroMillions.
At the beginning it was Finland, Slovenia, Germany, Italy, Estonia, the Netherlands, & Denmark that were the participating countries offering their citizens the opportunity to take part in the game.
In June 2012, Spain came on board and this was then followed not long afterwards on February 1st 2013 by Croatia, Lithuania, Norway, Iceland, Sweden & Latvia joining the EuroJackpot group.
The Czech Republic became the next state to become a part of the EuroJackpot group of countries on October 10th 2014 with Slovakia and Hungary then joining forces the following year on October 9th 2015. Poland was the last of the current compliment of European countries to become a member in September 2017.
This meant that now with a total of 18 countries across Europe partaking in the EuroJackpot lottery, it now boasted an even wider audience range than its more established cousin, EuroMillions.
The EuroJackpot uses a dual matrix of 5/50 + 2/10 which means that when you play, you need to choose 5 main numbers out of a range from 1 to 50 and then select 2 Euro Numbers from 1 to 10.
If you correctly match the 5 main winning numbers plus the 2 Euro Numbers you will be the lucky winner of a EuroJackpot Hrvatska top prize which will be a minimum of € 10 MILLION. This can rise to as much as € 90 MILLION if no jackpot winner is produced.
This is definitely one of the highest European lottery jackpot prizes available and the maximum amount of € 90 MILLION has indeed been won on numerous occasions which makes it one of the most exciting lotteries around for players to participate in across Europe.
The biggest EuroJackpot Hrvatska top prize to have been won so far with the Croatia Lottery has been a huge HRK 131,794,842.60 (€ 17,283,821.50) which was won on January 10th 2014 by a very lucky player from Zagreb. This is by far the biggest lottery prize ever to have been won to date in the history of Hrvatska Lutrija.
There are 12 different ways you can win on the EuroJackpot and the odds of winning the jackpot prize are 1 in 95,344,200 with the overall odds of you winning any Euro Jackpot prize being 1 in 26.
The EuroJackpot draw is made at 9.00pm on Fridays in Helsinki, Finland with all tickets being evaluated in Denmark & Germany.
