"The Otoslotto from Szerencsejáték & Lotto.hu – Every Saturday"
Current Jackpot 325,000,000 Ft
The history of Hungary Lottery games goes as far back as 1770 when the first Hungarian Lotto draw took place in the city of Buda.
In more recent times the National Savings Bank – Országos Takarékpénztár – was in charge of organising and running traditional Hungary Lotto games and pools.
Today – the company responsible for the administration and overseeing of all Lottery Hungary games is Szerencsejatek –
which literally translates into English as meaning 'gambling'.
Szerencsejáték was first formed by the government in 1991 to look after the interests of all Lotto.hu games and this State owned company is the biggest provider of gaming services in Hungary.
Almost two thirds of the entire adult population of Hungary take part in the Hungarian National Lottery games that are offered by Szerencsejáték through its 3600 or more retail outlets plus online lottery ticket sales which were introduced in November 1998.
The portfolio of lotto games provided by Szerencsejatek includes the EuroJackpot, Hatoslottó – lottó 6 – Skandináv lottó, Joker, Keno, Luxor, Puttó, Sorsjegy, Toto, Tippmix and GolToto plus its most popular game of Ötöslottó – lottó 5 – which we shall be looking at in more detail here...
The Ötöslottó – otherwise known as the lottó 5 – is by far the most widely played out of all Lotto Hungary games offered by Szerencsejáték having first been introduced back on March 7th 1957 and is still as popular today.
The flagship OtosLotto game from Szerencsejatek is drawn once every week on a Saturday between 6.30pm and 7.30pm Budapest time and is notable for the fact that not only will its jackpot rollover when there are no winners but also the 2nd 3rd and 4th prizes.
An important game change was made to the Ötös lottó back on November 6th 1993 when the Joker option was introduced giving players even more chances of winning some of the great prizes.
We have studied the Ötöslottó in great detail and hope you get as much pleasure in reading about how it works as we have in writing about it...
The Ötöslottó uses a single matrix of 5/90 which means that 5 winning lotto numbers are drawn each week out of a total range of numbers from 1 to 90.
Therefore when you play Otoslotto you will need to select your 5 numbers out of that number range from 1 to 90. If you correctly match all 5 of the numbers drawn you will be the winner of an Ötöslottó jackpot.
The Ötös lottó jackpot starts off at 60,000,000 Ft and will rollover – increasing in size each time it is not won until a winner is produced. These top prize accumulation rollovers can carry on for up to 1 year at which time the jackpot prize money will then roll down to the lower prize levels if there is still no winner.
An unusual aspect of the Otos Lotto game is that in addition to the jackpot – the prizes on levels 2, 3 and 4 will also rollover and increase in size in line with the top prize.
You can choose to have your numbers selected for you when you play the Szerencsejáték Ötöslottó – simply request that the
computer or retailer uses their random number generator to automatically select your lottery numbers for you.
When you play Otos Lotto – you also have the option of playing with the Joker add-on which means that your chances of winning a prize on this lottó 5 game from Szerencsejáték are that much greater.
Following the main draw – the Ötöslottó Joker numbers are drawn which make up a 6 figure number drawn out of a range of numbers from 0 to 9.
You will win on the Otoslotto Joker if you successfully match the last 2, 3, 4, 5 or all 6 of the Joker numbers drawn.
To play Ötöslottó with the Joker all you need to do is mark the 'Joker' box on the Otoslotto playslip.
The cost of playing Ötös Lottó is 225 Ft for a basic game and an extra 200 Ft to include the Joker facility.
In previous years – you would have needed to be living in Hungary to be able to take part in any of the games offered by Szerencsejáték – Hungary Lotto tickets could only be purchased from a local retail outlet situated within the country of Hungary.
These days this is no barrier to you playing as online lottery ticket sales companies such as TheLotter – which is both legitimate and fully authorised – offer lotto ticket purchasing services allowing you to play Ötöslottó from almost anywhere in the world.
This is incredibly useful if you are living outside of Hungary and wish to participate in Szerencsejatek games – including the Otoslotto – or simply want to enjoy the convenience of being able to buy lottery tickets online.
All players will need to be a minimum of 18 years of age before they can purchase any tickets for the Szerencsejáték Ötöslottó.
The Ötöslottó is drawn by Szerencsejáték throughout the year every Saturday between 6.30pm and 7.30pm Budapest time and you can find the Otoslotto Results – Ötöslottó nyerőszámok – in numerous ways to find out if you are a winning ticket holder.

There are a total of 4 winning prize divisions on the Ötöslottó which means that there are thousands of prizes to be won every week. You can even win the lottery by selecting just 2 of the winning lottery numbers drawn.
The lottery odds of you winning an Ötös Lottó jackpot are 1 in 43,949,268 for correctly choosing all 5 of the winning lotto numbers.
For one of the 2nd prizes – the chances of you winning on the Otoslotto increase dramatically to 1 in 103,410 for successfully picking 4 out of the 5 winning numbers drawn.
To win one of the prizes on the 3rd level – you have winning odds of 1 in 1,231 for picking 3 out of the 5 winning numbers.
