Lotteries have been played in Uruguay since 1933, with games becoming structured and organized across the country from 1939 onwards. In addition to lottery games, raffle draws and pools betting are also popular across the country, but due to strict laws around online gambling, lotteries are practically the only betting activities that can be played online.
5 de Oro is Uruguay’s main national lottery game and one of the most popular ways to place a bet. Although 5 de Oro doesn’t have a minimum jackpot, with prizes instead being determined by the number of tickets sold, there is no jackpot limit or rollover caps, enabling prizes to grow enormously.
5 de Oro is a traditional lottery game, with players choosing five numbers from a possible 48, with Quick Pick and Multiple Betting options also being available.
Players can also enter the Revancha (revenge) secondary game: a jackpot-only game with unlimited rollover potential.
Quiniela is a popular lottery game giving Uruguayans the opportunity to win at 20 different prize tiers across 11 weekly draws! This game offers flexibility as players can split their stake over different prizes, which directly influences how much they can potentially win, as well as the number of selections they wish to make. Players who want to play for the maximum jackpot will need to make three selections, which enables them to win 500 times their stake!
The same number can also be drawn multiple times, giving players an added opportunity to win even more cash at no added cost!
Tombola takes place at the same time as the Quiniela draws, but uses a different format that offers both a larger potential jackpot as well as the potential to win more lucrative secondary prizes. Players choose up to seven numbers from a possible 100, but 20 are drawn in total, which makes it easier to win the jackpot! Players can choose as few as three numbers if they wish, but the more numbers they bet on, the more potential there is to win secondary prizes.
Unlike Quiniela, players don’t need to choose how to spread their stake across the prizes on offer, with their bet covering the entire game.
