Lotto India is a lottery which is available for the whole of India, with draws taking place twice a week and a range of exciting prizes. It also holds special draws from time to time, including the Diwali Bumper.
The game was launched in 2019 as the first online lottery for everyone in India. You are not restricted to playing from one or two states. If you want to play, you can take part as long as you are over the age of 18. Lotto India is even available from many other countries around the world.
Draws are held every Tuesday and Friday night at 6:00pm IST, with the cut-off time for entries 10 minutes earlier at 5:50pm IST.
You have to select six numbers from 1 to 50, plus a Joker Ball from 1 to 5. If your numbers match the winning numbers, you receive a prize. The table below shows the prizes up for grabs and what you need to do to win.
|Numbers Matched||Prize||Odds Winnning|

A monthly Lotto India Raffle also takes place, guaranteeing that there will be a number of big winners. You are automatically entered into the Raffle when you purchase an entry, and five winners are randomly selected every month. There’s a ₹40,000 prize fund in the Raffle, so each winner receives ₹8,000.

Lotto India is played in exactly the same way every draw, but the jackpot you can win is sometimes even bigger than normal. These are known as Bumper Draws, and they are scheduled occasionally throughout the year to celebrate important dates or holidays.
The Diwali Bumper on Friday November 5th is one of the most eagerly-awaited events to have been lined up so far, with a top prize that is worth ten times the regular amount. If it’s not won on the night, the jackpot reverts to ₹4 Crore for the next Lotto India draw.
In every other way it is essentially still a normal Lotto India draw. If you match the Joker Ball and win a Free Bet Bonus, you can use it for the next draw. You don’t have to wait for the following year’s Diwali Bumper.
The following table shows all the other Lotto India Bumper Draws:
|Draw Name||Date of Draw||Jackpot Amount|
