How to play Lotto France

Playing Lotto France online is much like buying a ticket from a retailer, except you do not have to be located in France to do so. Instead, you place a wager on the results and can win all the same prizes. Follow the steps below to get started:

  • Pick five numbers from 1 to 49, plus one Bonus Ball from 1 to 10. The Bonus number is drawn from a separate set, so you can choose the same number as one of your first five.
  • Select how many draws to enter. You can bet on a single draw or subscribe to enter future draws in advance.
  • Select ‘Add To Cart’ once you are happy with your numbers.
  • You then just need to confirm your payment, so you will need to create a account if you are a first-time player and deposit funds into your account.
  • Find out if you are a Lotto France winner. You can check the results after the draws at 8:35pm CET on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays, but you will also be sent an email notification if you win.

Lotto France Prizes and Odds

To win a Lotto France prize, the numbers you pick must match the winning numbers drawn. You must match all five numbers and the Bonus to win the jackpot, but there are a host of other awards on offer for matching fewer numbers. You even win if you match just the Bonus ball and no other numbers.

The jackpot rolls over every time it is not won and regularly reaches more than €15 million. If there is more than one jackpot winner, the prize money is split equally between them. The following table shows the prize tiers and odds of winning:
