Loto Romania – Romania Loto 6/49
Romania Lottery games are very well established and can trace their history way back to 1906 when the Loto Romania – one of Romania’s traditional companies – was founded.
Today’s Romania Lottery games are still run and organized by Compania Nationala Loteria Romana (CNLR) – an institution in Romanian society – and are governed fully by Romanian law.
In 1992, the Loto Romania became a proud member of one of Europe’s largest lottery organizations – European Lotteries – and in 1992, a member of the highly respected World Lottery Association, one of the largest lottery regulatory companies in the world.
Together these 2 organizations work with many of the greatest lottery companies in the world making sure that all worldwide lottery games offer the best possible service to the playing public throughout the countries that they serve.
Games offered by the Romania Lottery include Noroc, Joker, Loto 5/40, Pronosport, Pariloto, Loteria Instant, Video Loterie, Loterie Pasiva and the Romania Lottery flagship game that we are going to look at here – the Romania Lottery 6/49 – Loto Romania…
Loto Romania 6/49 – Overview
The Romania Lottery – Loto Romana – is a fairly recent game and was first launched in 1993 and is hugely popular in Romania and in neighbouring countries, being operated by the Compania Nationala Loteria Romana.
The Romania Lottery – Loto Romana 6/49 – is a traditional jackpot, draw-style, lotto game and is the flagship game offered by Loteria Romana, the national lottery and gaming company in Romania.
Each time that the Romania Lottery jackpot is not won, it will “rollover” and be added onto the jackpot for the next draw, making for some much larger jackpot figures to be won.
Draws for the Romania Lottery 649 from Loteria Romana take place twice every week on Thursdays at 4.00pm and Sundays at 7.20pm Romanian Time.
We are very pleased to have reviewed the Romania Lottery 6/49 and would highly recommend taking a good look at how it works below…
How It Works…
The Romania Lottery uses what’s called a matrix of 6/49 which means that when playing the Loto Romania, you will need to select 6 numbers out of a pool of balls numbered from 1 to 49.
If you match all 6 of the main numbers drawn then you will be a winner of the first division prize – the Romania Lottery jackpot.
In addition to the jackpot itself, there are 3 other ways in which you can win on the Romania Lottery, which means that are a great number of prizes to be won every week for anyone who plays this game from Loteria Romana.
So, playing the Romania Lottery is easy…just select your 6 numbers and wait for the draw to take place and see if you have become one of the lucky lottery winners.
A new, added feature of the Romania Lottery – Loto 649 – is an extra game called “Cheers” which you can play on the same ticket. The computer terminal will automatically generate an additional – 7th – number for you which will be part of a separate draw from which several categories of prize can be won.
Who Can Play?
The same as the majority of world lottery games, previously only citizens living in Romania were allowed to play in any of the Loteria Romana games including the Romania Lottery – Loto Romana – you used to have to purchase your lottery tickets from an authorized retailer based in Romania itself.
Today, though, this is not a problem as there are numerous online lottery ticket agents such as TheLotter who are both authorized and genuine – you are able to select your Romania Lottery numbers online and purchase your tickets –
it does not matter where in the world you live.
