"Portugal Lottery from JogosSantaCasa incl. EuroMilhoes & TotoLoto"
Portugal Lottery games can trace their history right back to September 1st 1784 when the very first incarnation of Lotaria Classica was introduced as a sweepstake lottery by SCML – Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa – as a way of raising valuable funds for good causes such as the Royal Hospital, abandoned children and the Royal Academy of Sciences.
On November 24th 1955 – Portugal Lottery games were given the more formal title of the Lotaria Nacional – the National Lottery of Portugal – which it is still known as today and another lottery sweepstake game – the Lotaria Popular – was added to the SCML range in March 1987.
In 2004 a new brand called Jogos Santa Casa was formed to operate all games of Portugal Lottery and the Lotaria Nacional and this company leads the way in social gaming in Portugal.
The biggest game in the JogosSantaCasa range has to be the well known EuroMillions – EuroMilhoes – which was first offered to the excited Portugal Lotto playing public in October 2004.
