Swiss Lotto – National lottery Switzerland – held its first draw in 1970. Since then, the Swiss Lottery playing scheme has been changed many times in order to make draws more attractive for its devotees.
The up-to-date format of Switzerland lotto allows winning a jackpot when matching six main numbers between 1 and 42 and an additional number from 1 to 6. When the lottery was launched, players were to predict six numbers from 1 to 45. The new scheme, 6 from 42 plus one additional number, came into force on January 10, 2013.
The founders of Swiss Lotto, Swiss Los in cooperation with Loterie Romande, altered the playing scheme in the current version of the lottery and added a big second category prize of 1 million Swiss francs. Besides, Switzerland participates in draws of the biggest Euro lottery, which increases the chances of local luck chasers to win a big prize by many times.
