The origins of the Turkey Lottery go way back to 1889 when the first Turkish Lottery game was organized. This was followed in 1890 when a Piyango – which meant a lottery using black and white cards – was introduced with a jackpot of TL7100.
The current Turkish Lottery games are organized and administered by Milli Piyango which was founded in 1939 and means State Lottery. The MilliPiyango is the Turkish National Lottery Administration which is the responsibility of the Turkish Prime Ministry and the only body authorized to operate lotteries in Turkey.
The Milli Piyango from Turkey also operates in the land-locked former USSR country of Kyrgyzstan.
Lottery Turkey and Milli Piyango are proud members of the European Lotteries Association – EL – as well as the World Lotteries Association – WLA – and hosted the European Lotteries Association 2009 Congress at Istanbul in June 2009.
Together these 2 organizations work with many of the greatest world lottery companies making sure that all global lottery games offer the best possible service to the playing public throughout the countries that they serve.
Milli Piyango offer various Turkish Lottery games in their portfolio including the Sayisal Loto 6/49 which is the most popular, the Milli Piyango itself, Sans Topu, On Numara and the Turkey Lottery that we will be reviewing here – the Super Loto 6/54...
Super Loto 6/54 – Overview
The Turkish Lottery – Super Loto 6/54 – is a very recent game and was first launched when the very first draw took place on October 19th 2007.
The Super Loto is one of the most popular and most played out of all the Turkey Lottery games that are offered to you by the Turkish National Lottery Administration – Milli Piyango.
The Super Loto 6/54 is a traditional draw-style, jackpot lottery game and is one of the premier Turkey Lottery games offered by MilliPiyango, the national lottery and gaming company in Turkey.
Jackpots for the Super Loto commence at approximately TL1.1 Million and each week that the Turkey Lottery jackpot is not won, it will rollover and be added onto the jackpot for the next draw.
Interestingly, there is no limit to how many times the Super Loto can rollover making for some very exciting and much larger lottery jackpot figures that can be won.
Draws for the Turkish Lottery 6/54 take place every week on Thursdays at 8.30pm Turkish Time.
We are very pleased to have reviewed the Super Loto 6/54 from the Turkish Lottery and would highly recommend taking a good look at how it works below...

If you match all 6 of the main numbers drawn then you will be a winner of the first division prize – the Super Loto jackpot.
In addition to the jackpot itself, there are 3 further ways in which you can win on the Milli Piyango 6/54 game, which means that are a great number of prizes to be won every week for anyone who plays this game from the Turkish Lottery.
So, playing the Super-Loto is very simple indeed…just select your 6 numbers and wait for the Milli Piyango draw to take place and see if you have become one of the lucky Turkish Lottery winners.
A Quick Pick facility is available when playing the Lottery Turkey – Super Loto – very much the same as the “Lucky Dip” option that is used in the UK Lottery or Europe’s EuroMillions or nearly all USA Lottery games & Canadian Lotteries – which means that you can ask your Turkish Lottery retailer or lottery ticket sales agency to randomly select all of your Turkey Lottery numbers for you.
Who Can Play?
The same as the majority of world lottery games, previously only citizens of Turkey were allowed to play in any of the Milli Piyango games including the Super Loto – you used to have to purchase your Turkish Lottery tickets from an authorized lottery ticket sales retailer based in Turkey itself.
