What is the Loto of Chile

The Loto of Chile is the game of chance par excellence for an entire country, and for a little more than its 18 million inhabitants.

El Loto and all its variants in the game are administered by the company Polla Chilena de Beneficencia, a state-owned company that, together with the Lotería de la Concepción, forms an exclusive partnership for the organization of lotteries and other games of chance.

In a previous post, chilean lotteries, we reviewed the various lotteries and games that both companies offer. This time we will go into the detail of the classic Lotto

How to play the Loto of Chile

The game has a table with 41 squares numbered from 1 to 41 respectively, and to participate in the game, 6 of these squares must be marked manually or by allowing the system itself to randomly choose a betting combination.

The value of the play is $1000, although with the official ticket you can also mark more than 6 boxes and up to a maximum of 10 in what would be the “combined plays”. It is not possible to use the option to have the system randomly choose the combinations in the combo plays.

On the ticket, there are some additional options to increase the possibilities of increasing the prizes. In the upper part it offers a “Multiplier”, and in the left part next to the board of the numbers to make the bet, there appear four complementary game possibilities to the classic move: Surcharge, Revenge, Payback,

Other possibilities are also Jubilazo and Multiplicador

The Jubilazo, plays with the same numbers as the classic Lotto bet, during 6 draws, opting for 3 prizes of $1 million for 20 years or 3 prizes of $500,000 for 20 years.
The Multiplicador, which allows you in case you have chosen the option MULTIPLY, along with the classic Lotto bet, that in case you are the winner in any of the categories, except the categories of 6 matches and 5 matches plus wild, the prize obtained will be multiplied by the MULTIPLY number of the draw that you get.

How many numbers to win the Loto of Chile

The draw is quite complex, there is a first draw for the results of the Classic Lotto. First, 6 balls are drawn from a drum containing the 41 balls numbered 1 to 41, plus a seventh (7th) ball called “Comodin”.

In this draw for the Classic Lotto, the prizes are in the following categories:

Hits Awards
6 hits LOTO
5 hits + comodín Súper Quina
5 hits Quina
4 hits + comodín Súper Cuaterna
4 hits Cuaterna
3 hits + comodín Súper Terna
3 hits Terna
2 hits + comodín Súper Dupla

Once the draw of the Classic Loto is over, the prize for the “Reloaded” is drawn. The draw system is the same, 6 balls are extracted from the drum that contains the 41 numbered balls.
A unique prize of Reloaded, for the ticket that has the same numbers that coincide with the 6 extracted in this draw.
Additionally, there is a category called Termination, where each bet has an associated number between 0 and 9. If the number drawn coincides with the number of the bet, the prize is $500.

In the same way you can proceed with the drawing of 6 balls for the “REVANCHA” draw. The SINGLE REVANCHA jackpot will be won when the player’s bet matches the 6 numbers drawn in this draw.

After that the draw of “REVANCHA” will take place, following the same ritual of the extraction of 6 of the 41 balls that it contains in the drum. The winner is the UNIQUE jackpot, the ticket that has the same combination as the 6 numbers drawn in this draw.
Then, following the same system, 6 balls are drawn from the 41 contained in the drum, for the “RETURN” draw. You will win one of 3 prizes of $1 million per month for 20 years or one of 3 prizes of $500,000 per month for 20 years of the Jubilazo, if the ticket contains the same numbers that match the 6 drawn in these drawings.

NOTE: In the “RETIREMENT” drawings, if there is more than one winner, the corresponding prize will be divided by the resulting number of winners. In the event there are no winners in the “RETIREMENT” drawings, the prize amount of the respective drawing does not accumulate for the next drawing.
