Slovakia Lottery games date as far back as 1874 – which back then was Austrian-Hungarian – when a lottery was introduced to support the building of
a grammar school in the town of Revúca in the region of Banská Bystrica Region, Slovakia.
Following the formation of the state of Czechoslovakia in 1918, there was another early Slovak lottery created called the Masaryk Aviation League – Masarykovu Leteckú Ligu – where an entry cost 3 crowns and players could win an incredible 90,000 crowns!
In 1953 it was decided that cash prizes were not permissible when Slovakia was then ruled by the Soviet-led Eastern Bloc, only in-kind lottery games were available. This led to underground and illegal betting operations which eventually resulted in the official Czechoslovakia State Lottery being formed in 1957 when it players were once again allowed to play for monetary prizes.
September 15th 1956 saw the launch of Sazka which then launched the first lottery – Sportka – on April 22nd 1957 being inspired by the success & popularity of Germany's Lotto 6 aus 49.
So, Sazka was the company now to be operating Czech Lottery games across the whole of Czechoslovakia between 1957 up until the country was dissolved & turned into 2 separate countries – the Czech Republic & Slovakia – with effect from January 1st 1993.
Once Slovakia had gained its independence in 1993, TIPOS was then registered as a company on January 28th 1993 to operate Slovakia Lottery games. TIPOS is wholly owned by the Slovak Republic’s Ministry of Finance, part of of the Slovak government.
TIPOS was launched in 1993 with the games ŠPORTKA, ŠANCA, STÁVKA 5 ZO 40, SAZKA, SKÓRE and MATES. KENO 10, KLUB KENO, TIPOS BINGO were then introduced by TIPOS in 1995.
In 2002, some of the names of the TIPOS games changed – ŠPORTKA became the TIPOS LOTO, ŠANCA became the JOKER & MATES became what we now know as LOTO 5 z 35.
The EUROMILIONY was introduced to the TIPOS Loto range of games in 2004 and on October 9th 2015 saw TIPOS join the consortium of countries across Europe to offer the multi-national european EUROJACKPOT lottery to its own country's players.
So, currently the games to be offered by TIPOS SK to its players in Slovakia are: EUROJACKPOT, LOTO, LOTO 5 z 35, JOKER, EUROMILIONY, KENO 10 & KLUB KENO in addition to many other online games and scratch cards that are available online.
