Game Objective

KINO is a numerical lottery that requires the exact match of 1 to 12 numbers – according to the relevant game type – out of a total of 20 numbers drawn from a series of 80 numbers (from 1 to 80).

KINO is the fastest and more exciting entertaining numerical lottery game with consecutive draws occurring every 5 minutes! It is a game that became very popular in many countries and that allows YOU to choose the amount you want to win and the odds that will allow you to achieve this.

You want to win  € 100or € 1.000.000?

The choice is yours!!!

You control the game!!!

Game types

There are 12 game types. In every Game Type, winning tickets are allocated to prize categories according to the amount of the selected numbers included in the 20 numbers that were drawn. For each of the Prize Categories there is a corresponding Odds Coefficient, based on which payouts are calculated.

Who wins? – Earnings per Winning Ticket

Winnings per winning ticket in each prize category are calculated based on the corresponding Returns Coefficient multiplied by the wager placed by the player.
In other words, according to the Game Type you have selected (1 to 12 numbers) and the wager you placed, you may know beforehand what your winnings will be.
Each of the twelve different game types acts as an independent game with its own prize categories and the corresponding Returns Coefficients, as these are published in the RETURNS COEFFICIENTS TABLE

How much does it cost?

The amount per column (selection of as many numbers as defined by a specific game type for each draw) is € 0.50.

Where can I play?

Valid tickets are sold exclusively in OPAP S.A. agencies.

End of participation

The deadline for valid entries ends at the beginning of each draw. Every ticket validated after that is participating in the next draw.

 

Draws

KINO draws take place every five (5) minutes from 09:00 to 22:00 every day and each time 20 out of the 80 numbers included in the slip are drawn. An electronic random number generator, certified for its credibility by academic, educational and research institutions in Greece and abroad, generates these 20 lucky numbers.
The draw results are published in OPAP S.A. agencies' monitors and they are also uploaded to our website
