History of the France Loto

France is a country that has always been culturally rich in terms of lottery games, with lotteries first being introduced as far back as the 16th century. They were mostly used for national fundraising.

The France Loto (Loto Francaise) was introduced in 1976, and is still going strong thanks to the millions of French and international players participating in the three weekly draws.

How the France Loto works

The France Loto game employs a “double matrix” draw structure where players must choose numbers from two sets of balls; select five numbers from a possible 49 (standard ball selection) and one number from a possible 10 (the Lucky Number selection).

To qualify for a win in this lottery, a player is required to match all six of their chosen numbers to all six of the numbers that have been drawn at random.

There is a total of six prize tiers for this lottery, which means that there are a great number of prizes to be won every week.

Record breaking France Loto draws

Even though the France Loto comes with a fairly modest €2 million minimum jackpot, that doesn’t mean it cannot pay out an impressive amount, thanks to rollovers.

Every time this lottery rolls over, the jackpot amount increases in €1 million increments. In addition to this, the jackpot’s ability to roll over is capped a generous 34 times.

The largest single-ticket jackpot prize won on the France Loto was €24 million, in June 2011. The jackpot had rolled over an impressive 11 times from a starting special draw jackpot prize of €13 million to end up on this amount – nearly double the initial prize!
