Japan Jumbo Draw

Japanese lottery games can trace their history way back to the 1630’s but the modern Japan lottery games started in October 1945 when the government of Japan began to retail its lottery tickets or Takarakuji (宝くじ) translating to “fortune lottery” or “treasure lottery”.

All local Japanese governments were then permitted to run Takarakuji lotteries in 1946 and in 1954 they administered these Japanese Lottery games exclusively when the Japanese government relinquished control of Japan Lotto games.

All Japanese Lottery games are fully authorised by the Minister of Home Affairs along with the local assembly & the actual operation and administration of the lottery itself is handed over to a bank.

Various banks have operated Japanese lottery games since 1945 with the Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank recently being a major player and the current bank to be in control of Lottery Japan is Mizuho Bank.

There are 3 types of Japan Lotto games jackpot lotto numbers games whereby you pick your own numbers, scratchcards and the more old fashioned raffle lottery style of game which uses tickets with pre-printed numbers & offers prizes that are pre-set.

The primary Japan Lotto games offered by the Japanese Lottery Association are the Loto 6, the Loto 7, Numbers 3, Numbers 4, Miniloto plus the Japan Loto that we shall be looking at in more detail here – the Richest Asian Lottery – the Japan Jumbo Draw.

Japan Jumbo DrawHow it Works

Japan Jumbo Draw

The Japan Jumbo draw does not work in the same way as all traditional lotto jackpot games – it is a raffle lottery & as such its tickets are pre-printed with numbers & there are a pre-determined number of lotto tickets with prizes that are also pre-set beforehand.

Each of the Japan Jumbo draw lottery tickets will have 3 separate numbers printed on them and it is important for you to understand what the numbers relate to when playing the Jumbo Lottery Japan.

The 1st number at the top (566 in the example below) tells you the actual number of the Jumbo Lottery draw that you are playing in.

The 2nd number in the middle (82 in the example below) tells you the ticket Group number – with normally 100 groups in all draws.

The 3rd number (121460 in the example below) tells you what the individual Ticket number is on your Japan Jumbo Lottery ticket.

The 2 important numbers to be aware of here are both the middle number and the bottom number – that is, the 2 digit Group number & the 6 digit individual Ticket number which tell you if you've won.

To claim the Japan Jumbo Draw first prize your ticket will need to match both the Group number plus the Ticket number drawn.

The March drawing is called the GREEN Japan Jumbo Draw. The June draw is called the DREAM Japan Jumbo Draw, the August drawing is known as the SUMMER Japan Jumbo Draw and lastly the December draw is called the YEAR END Japan Jumbo Draw.
