5 De Oro
5 de Oro is Uruguay’s most popular national lottery game.
Draws take place twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays at 21:00 local time. In-store ticket sales close at 20:00 on draw days, with tickets from all other sources available right up until the draw. Ticket sales resume shortly afterward.
5 de Oro tickets cost UYU 35.00.
To play, choose five numbers between 1 and 48, or go for a Quick Pick for randomly generated selections. An Extra number is also drawn, with players needing to match it against existing selections to win secondary prizes.
Multiple Betting allows players to choose 6, 7 or 8 numbers that are then entered into the draw in multiple combinations. Alternatively, players can choose just four numbers as 44 possible combinations if they wish, with each unchosen digit functioning as the final number on each line.
Players can enter the Revancha game for an additional UYU 15.00, utilizing their 5 de Oro numbers for a chance to win the jackpot by matching all five numbers in this second game. Revancha does not have any secondary prizes, but because this is a rollover lottery, the jackpot can often reach huge sums.
5 de Oro does not have a minimum jackpot, nor any limits to the number of rollovers.
