Israeli Lottery – Israel Lottery
The Israeli Lottery offers lotto players numerous games and has been in existence now for many years – in fact the very respected Israel National Lottery is older than most USA Lottery and UK Lottery companies – making it one of the older National Lottery organisations in the world.
The Israel National Lottery was established in the early 1950s with the very first Israel Lotto draw taking place a long time ago on October 16th 1951.
The Israel Lottery is run and organised by Mifal Hapayis which in turn is overseen by the Israeli government.
The aim of the Israel Lottery right from the outset has been to benefit the citizens of Israel – initially improve hospital services and building clinics and hospitals in various cities throughout the country. Since 1954 Israel Lotto games have also supported the educational system in Israel.
Among the various lottery games offered by the Israeli Lottery are the 123, Chance, Payis 777, Hishgad, Keno and the main Israel Lotto game – New Lotto – plus the Israel Lotto – DOUBLE Lotto / Lotto DOUBLE – which we are going to take a more detailed look at here…
Israel Lotto – DOUBLE LOTTO – Overview
The flagship Israel Lottery game is the Israel Lotto itself – a jackpot lottery style game that was launched back in 1968. This is the most widely played and popular of all the Israel Lottery games.
In early 2009 the Israel National Lottery changed the format slightly of the Israel Lotto – also changing its name to the New Lotto.
Just prior to this change though in 2008 – the Israel Lottery introduced a new version of the standard Israel Lotto / New Lotto – called the DOUBLE LOTTO / Lotto Double.
Simply put – the DOUBLE LOTTO allows players to win DOUBLE the amount they would normally win when they play the Israel Lotto – New Lotto.
Lottery tickets for the DOUBLE Lotto costs twice the amount of those for the standard Israel Lotto / New Lotto – but having the chance of winning double the lottery jackpot makes it worth it.
Lottery jackpots for the Israeli Lottery – DOUBLE Lotto – start off at a more exciting NIS 8 Million which is twice the size of the jackpot for the corresponding New Lotto Game.
The lotto draw for the Israeli Lottery – DOUBLE Lotto – takes place twice every week on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10.55pm Jerusalem Time.
Israel Lotto – DOUBLE LOTTO – How It Works…
The same as the New Lotto from the Israeli Lottery – the DOUBLE Lotto uses a twin matrix of 6/31 + 1/7. This means that when you play the DOUBLE Lotto you will need to select 6 numbers out of a range of numbers from 1 to 37 followed by 1 bonus number out of a range of numbers from 1 to 7.
When the lotto draw takes place – the 6 main lottery numbers will be drawn first followed by the 1 bonus number – or Chazak Number. Chazak means “strong” in Hebrew and the Chazak Number is the Israeli Lottery version of the Bonus Number, Mega Number or Power Ball number.
To win the jackpot for the DOUBLE Lotto you will need to successfully match all of the 6 main lottery numbers drawn plus the Chazak Number / Bonus Number.
In addition to the DOUBLE LOTTO jackpot – there are 7 further ways that you can win with this Israel Lotto game – meaning that there are thousands of prizes to be won twice every week.
There is a Quick Pick / Lucky Dip facility available when you play the Israel Lottery – DOUBLE Lotto – similar to the Quick Pick used by most USA Lottery games and the Lucky Dip used by the EuroMillions and UK Lotto games.
So playing the Israel Lotto – DOUBLE Lotto – is very easy. Just choose your own lottery numbers or ask for the computer / lottery terminal to select them for you automatically using its random number generator.
