Pronosticos - Loteria Nacional Mexicana

One of the two official operators of Mexico Lottery Games along with the Loteria Nacional de Mexico is Pronosticos with a full title of Pronósticos Deportivos Pronósticos para la Asistencia Publica - literally meaning Sports Forecast Forecasts for Public Assistance - which is based in Mexico City.

Pronosticos was first established as an agency of the Mexican government on February 24th 1978 and began operating in June of that year when the football World cup finals were held in Argentina - and offered games of predicting the football scores called Progol - which is still going strong today.

The main aim of Pronosticos is to raise funds for the benefit of public assistance by way of providing games of betting to the public who can win substantial cash prizes.

1980 saw Pronosticos offer games such as Progol Marcador, Prohit, and Prohit Carrera Inicial - bringing in Progol Inicial in 1981 and Protouch and Protouch Inicial in 1982.

In 1984 the organization's title was changed to Pronósticos Deportivos a Pronósticos para la Asistencia Pública on August 17th from Pronósticos para la Asistencia Pública .

Also in 1984 Pronósticos introduced its first Mexico Lottery game - Melate - which is still its principal ofefering today and is the game that we shall be taking a closer look at here...

Sorteo Melate – Pronosticos – Overview

The Sorteo Melate was introduced by Pronosticos into its Mexico Lottery portfolio of games back in 1984 with the first draw being conducted on August 19th.

The Melate is a standard jackpot lotto type of game which uses a single matrix and is the principal game offered by Pronosticos and its website

In similar fashion to the majority of world lottery games - the jackpot of this popular Mexico Lottery will rollover - increasing in size every time it is not won. This regularly produces some huge Mexico Lottery jackpots.

The jackpot starts off at a minimum of Mex$ 30 MILLION and you can win a prize by correctly matching just 2 of the winning lottery numbers.

Tickets can be purchased from any of the 9,000+ authorized Pronosticos agencies throughout Mexico as well as via its website -

Pronosticos make the drawings twice every week in Mexico City on Wednesdays and Sundays at 9.15pm Mexico time.

It has been a pleasure to write about this game from Pronosticos and we would very much encourage players to take a more detailed look below at how it operates...

Sorteo Melate  Pronosticos – How It Works 

The Melate is played using a matrix of 6/56 - meaning that as a player - you will need to select 6 lottery numbers out of a range of numbers from 1 to 56.

Firstly - 6 numbers are drawn which are called the 'natural' (or main) numbers followed by a 7th number known as the 'additional number'.

You will become the winner of a Melate jackpot if you should correctly select all 6 of the main ('natural') numbers drawn. The 'additional number' is used to determine prizes on prize levels 2, 4, 6 and 8.

There are a total of 9 different prize levels - which means that as well as the much sought after jackpot - you have 8 further ways in which you can win the lottery twice every week.

Each playslip has 5 separate sections of 56 numbers from A to E allowing you to select up to 5 different combinations of numbers when you play.

You can also choose to have the computer terminal pick lottery numbers for you using its random number generator. This is the Melático option and is the same as the Quick Pick used in USA Lotteries or Lucky Dip used in some European Lotteries.

 It is therefore very easy to play - you simply select your own 6 numbers or ask for a Melático and wait for the Melate results to be announced.

The cost of playing is Mex$ 15.00 for each selection of 6 numbers - 1 play for a single game.

Revancha – A 2nd Chance to Win...

Pronosticos introduced the Revancha option on August 6th 1997 giving you a 2nd chance of winning with the same 6 numbers.

After the main draw - the 6 Revancha numbers are drawn and if you decide to include this option you will use the 6 numbers you have already played with.

Simply tick the Revancha box on the playslip and you will be playing in this 2nd draw and you can win by matching just 2 of the numbers drawn.

There is a guaranteed minimum 1st prize of of Mex$ 20 MILLION to be won on the Revancha.

The cost of adding the Revancha option is Mex$ 10.00 meaning that the overall cost of your lottery ticket will now be Mex$ 25.00 for 2 chances of winning.

Revanchita – A 3rd Chance to Win...

Pronosticos really must want you to win the lottery - having added a 3rd chance option in August 2010 called Revanchita.

Once again you would be using the same 6 numbers as you have chosen for the main draw and Revancha - and Revanchita gives you a 3rd opportunity of winning a prize.

After the main draw has been made and the Revancha numbers have been drawn - a 3rd set of 6 numbers are drawn for the Revanchita.

Just mark the Revanchita box on the playslip to be included in this 3rd draw which offers you a guaranteed minimum winnings of Mex$ 30 MILLION.

To play the Revanchita will cost a further Mex$ 5.00 meaning that your total ticket cost will be Mex$ 30.00 for 3 chances of winning.
