About French Loto

Loto stands as one of the premier games administered by Française des Jeux (FDJ), the sole operator of lottery games in France. Since its inception in 1976, the French Loto has been instrumental in creating millionaires and awarding non-jackpot prizes.

Draws take place on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday evenings at 20:35 CET. The initial jackpot begins at €2 million and escalates by €1 million for subsequent draws until it is claimed.

How to Play and Win French Loto?

Players participating in the French Loto select five numbers from a range of 1 to 49, along with a Chance number from 1 to 10, for a ticket price of €2.20. To secure the top prize, players must match all six numbers drawn. Other prize tiers include a €2.20 reimbursement for matching solely the Chance number, up to €100,000 for matching all five main numbers.

If the jackpot remains unclaimed for 34 consecutive draws, the funds are redistributed among players in the highest winning tier. All prizes are awarded as tax-free lump sums, though individuals who purchased tickets via a concierge service should seek advice from tax professionals in their respective locations.

Additionally, players can choose to participate in a 2nd Draw for an additional €0.80, offering the chance to win up to €100,000. This separate draw involves selecting five additional winning numbers from 1 to 49, using the same numbers chosen for the main Loto draw. Prizes are awarded for matching two, three, or four numbers.

In the French Loto 2nd Draw, both the top prize of €100,000 and the lowest prize of €3 are fixed amounts. The other two prizes are pari-mutuel, meaning their amounts vary based on ticket sales and the number of winners.

Here’s how the prizes are funded: 59% of the money from 2nd Draw ticket sales contributes to the prize fund. From this amount, 7.09% is allocated to pay out the top prize of €100,000, followed by the distribution of fixed €3 prizes. The remaining funds are divided between the other two prizes: 72% for the Match 3 prize and 28% for the Match 4 prize.

It’s important to note that the top prize in the 2nd Draw does not roll over. If it is not won, the unclaimed prize money is added to a reserve fund for future prize payouts. The odds of winning any prize in both the main French Loto draw and the 2nd Draw are 1 in 4.
