Ecuador is home to one of the oldest lotteries in the world, with Loteria Nacional having been around since 1894!
Ecuador’s lotteries are somewhat unique, as none of its games allow players to select their own numbers; instead, games are raffles in which players get the next ticket available from vendors, with the more traditional lottery game, Pozo, only having tickets with randomly generated numbers available.
A draw takes place every day in Ecuador, giving players multiple chances to win significant cash prizes throughout the week!
Loteria Nacional is a raffle game with a limited number of entries per draw, with players needing to be quick if they wish to participate! Players can choose the price of their own ticket, but opting to pay less than the standard entry price signifies only a percentage of the maximum prize will be paid to those who win.
In addition to the jackpot, Loteria Nacional offers prizes at 12 additional tiers, with a total of over 9,000 winners in each draw!
The format of Lotto is similar to Loteria Nacional, although Lotto has 10 times as many entries available, with the ticket price costing just a tenth of a standard Loteria Nacional entry. Lotto pays out over 90,000 prizes during each draw, including a number of fixed prizes at each of its 13 tiers. The overall odds of winning a prize are just 1 in 10!
Lotto also has two secondary games, with a chance to win jackpots of $1,000 or $10,000.
Pozo is Ecuador’s only traditional lottery game, although players don’t get to choose their own numbers either; instead, each Pozo ticket randomly generates 14 numbers from the 25 available.
Pozo doesn’t advertise a fixed or minimum jackpot, nor any secondary prizes, with the prize pool being determined by the volume of tickets sold.
Pozo also has a secondary game that enables players to win back the cost of their ticket.
The below table provides an overview of the schedule for each Ecuadorian lottery game.

All prizes exceeding $500 are taxed at 14% on the value above the $500 threshold.
