Super 5 is one of several popular lottery games played in Malta.
Draws take place once a week on Wednesdays at 19:45 local time and are broadcast live on national television. Tickets are available up to one hour before the draw, with sales resuming shortly afterwards.
Entry costs €2.00.
To play, choose five numbers from 1 to 45, or go for a Quick Pick for randomly generated numbers.
In System Entry, select additional numbers that are then entered into the Super 5 draw as multiple combinations to enhance the chances of winning, but with much more expensive tickets!
Participants can play Ambo for an extra €1.00 minimum, betting on two numbers drawn in the Super 5 draw. Players can multiply their Ambo stake by up to 500 times, which vastly increases the potential jackpot, but costs a hefty €500 for just a 1 in 99 chance of winning!
Ambo has its very own System Entry option, with players choosing up to 10 numbers out of a possible 45 for a better overall chance.
Advance Play is available for up to 30 draws at a time.
Super 5 has a minimum guaranteed jackpot of €150,000. This is a rollover draw with no upper jackpot limit or number of rollovers that can occur.
Ambo participants matching both numbers win 45 times their stake for a maximum jackpot of €22,500. Note that System Entry players can only win 45 times their stake for each combination played, not 45 times their entire stake.
