Lotteries have been played in Italy since the early 16th century, but it
wasn’t until 1734 that organized regular games actually took place. Since

Italians now have the opportunity to play a lottery game every five minutes
if they wish!
Lotteries in Italy are administered by two operators, Lottomatica and the Sisal
Lotto is Italy’s main national lottery game, with a unique format that
gives players various opportunities to win. During Lotto, 11 sets of
numbers are drawn: one from a national lottery wheel and another 10 numbers
from wheels named after different Italian cities.
Players can choose random numbers from random wheels, or go for specific
numbers from specific wheels. Playing Lotto with an “Ambetto” wins prizes
if the exact number is drawn, but also pays out prizes for numbers
immediately before or after the chosen number; i.e., if 9 is selected,
players win if 8, 9 or 10 are drawn.

MillionDAY is a popular daily draw game that gives players a chance to win
a fixed €1 million jackpot plus a range of secondary prizes, all for a

SuperEnalotto is, by some distance, the most difficult lottery in the world
to win, with eye-watering odds of winning the jackpot of 1 in 622,614,630!

most popular games and is often responsible for enormous jackpots due to
the frequency of rollovers.
For players who want to participate in SuperEnalotto from outside of Italy,
note that ticket sales close a number of hours before each draw, in
comparison to local sales that close 30 minutes beforehand.
Italy was a founding member of EuroJackpot, with players having
participated from the first draw onwards in March 2012. In addition to
Italy, EuroJackpot is available in a further 17 countries, having remained
popular thanks to its generous starting jackpot, long odds and frequent
rollovers, although none of the biggest jackpots have been won in Italy

with different rates applying to different games.

For SuperEnalotto, a 20% tax applies on all winnings over €500.
Despite the varying rates, all taxes are deducted at source, with players
needing to do little else in this respect; however, overseas players should
