With its small guess range and starting guaranteed jackpot of CHF1.5 million, the Swiss Lotto has fast become a firm favourite with World Lottery players.
Creating between 20 and 30 new millionaires every year the Swiss Lotto jackpot record was set in the draw on 17th December 2016 when the prize reached CHF70.1 million.
That incredible amount was split between three lucky ticket holders and broke the previous jackpot record of CHF48.6 million, which was set in August 2014.
One thing to note when playing this Lotto is that in Switzerland are subject to taxes at source. Winnings up to CHF1,000,000 are tax-free.
The portion of the prize above that amount are subject to a tax rate of 35% but if you are lucky enough to win a large amount theLotter will guide you through the process.
For your chance to win a prize, select select six main numbers from 1 to 42 and one additional Lucky Number from 1 to 6.
The jackpot is awarded for matching all six main numbers and the lucky number. Prizes are awarded down seven prize divisions. The small guess range means the odds of winning the Swiss Lotto jackpot or a prize in one of the additional seven prize divisions is extremely high.
Make sure to purchase your tickets ahead of the draws on Wednesday and Saturday nights at 17:00 (local time). If you are playing from outside Switzerland, remember to calculate the time difference from the country you are playing.
Why not increase your chances of winning and enter with a systematic form? You can win multiple times and in more than one prize division on the same ticket, leading to bigger wins when your numbers prove lucky.
