lottery grid

Although the lottery is a game of chance, the filling of the grid, on the other hand, cannot be left to chance. The methodical way in which the grid is filled must be known. At first glance, this may seem trivial, but it can significantly increase the chance of winning.

How to play ?

As a reminder, playing the lottery consists of choosing and ticking 6 numbers on a grid. On the grid, there is a grid with 49 numbers from which you have to choose 5 numbers. But then again, you have to choose another one on a grid of 10 numbers. This is the sixth number which is also called the lucky number. Since 2019, by paying an extension, you can play the same numbers again, but with a different combination.

In addition, there are a few basic rules to follow. First of all, you have to pay an initial stake of 2 euros. Note that these rules have had some changes. Starting with the number of the draw which is 3 times a week instead of 2 before. These are Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. There is only one draw per evening if there were two before. As mentioned, you need 5 numbers and one lucky number.

In addition, there is at least 2 million euros to be won. As for the frequency of winning, there is 1 chance out of 6 to win if before there was only 1 chance out of 13. What is also interesting is that by finding two good numbers, a player can already win 5 euros. As far as the payout rate is concerned, it is 55%. This is the same rate of the Spanish lottery.

Filling the grid

There are two types of grilles, the single grille and the multiple grille. For the first one, you tick 5 numbers and a lucky number by paying 2.20 euros. For the second, there is a possibility to select more numbers and or more chance numbers. The price of the multiple grid depends on the number of numbers selected.

It is important to note that the lottery game is strictly for adults. Indeed, no lottery can be won by a minor. This is valid even if the minor in question is accompanied by an adult. Moreover, for the creation of an account as well as the purchase of an online grid, a scan of an identity document must be attached. The same applies to purchases of physical media.

The online lottery

Like all other games, the lottery is part of the virtual world. In other words, it is now possible to play the lottery online. The rules and principles are the same. Especially since playing online has many advantages. One of them is convenience, because you no longer have to leave your home to buy the grid.

The ticket is then carefully guarded.

Finally, playing the lottery online means being able to play wherever you want. Moreover, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to the type of game you want to play. This helps to increase the chance of winning. You bet on several eggs, as they say.
