Loteria del Valle
Based in Colombia’s Pacific region, Loteria del Valle is a popular raffle-based lottery game played across the entire country.
Draws take place once a week on Wednesdays at 22:30 local time and are broadcast live on regional television, with results published on the official Loteria del Valle website shortly afterwards.
Entry costs COP 4,000 per ticket, although players often choose a set of three tickets for COP 12,000.
Tickets can be purchased at authorised lottery distributors or online. Each ticket has a unique four-digit number, plus a “Series” number that is the same for the set of three tickets.
Players need to match the four-digit ticket and the series number to win prizes, determined by the order that numbers are generated.
Subscriber plans are available for Loteria del Valle draws for three, six, nine or 12 months in advance. Tickets are discounted when bought in a subscription, with a 15% discount for the 12-month plan.
Loteria del Valle does not have any secondary games or opportunities to win prizes beyond the main raffle draw.
Loteria del Valle has a fixed jackpot of COP 3.5 billion, and because the nature of Loteria del Valle guarantees a winner every draw, there are no jackpot rollovers or rolldowns.
Occasional special draws are held with an increased jackpot of COP 5 billion.
