Α. Single Column and Full Development System
Single Column:The minimum wager is one column (single column); the player selects six (6) numbers in a field of (49) numbers.
Full Development System:Selection of more than six (6) numbers in a field of forty-nine (49) numbers.
Participation using Single Columns
Participation using Full Development System
LOTTO Standard Systems offer you the possibility to participate in the game by filling in fewer columns compared to those needed for a full system. In total, there are twenty-five (25) standard systems, out of which seven (7) are free-standing, whereas the rest of them can only be used for permutations systems. Filling in fewer columns means lower cost, but also less than 100% rate of success upon correct predictions, as rate of success depends on the standard system you have selected and 100% rate is achieved in full systems. The Standard Systems Table, which contains the systems' codes, along with the corresponding selections in numbers and columns resulting from each system, may be found at the back of the playslip. The free-standing standard systems can be played on any area of the playslip and are distinguished by the fact that the required potential successful predictions should be six (6). Thesystemcodeismarkedinthe"Codes" Field. For further information about standard systems, you can read the game's brochure, be advised by an OPAP agent or enter the Autonomus Sorting Program that is available for free on our website.
Participation using Standard System with code 48 (selected numbers 9 / 12 columns)
C. Permutations Systems ΑxΒ up to AxBxC
LOTTO permutations systems offer the possibility of combining your selections in two (2) or/and in up to three (3) matrix areas. The success rate depends on the number of correct predictions in each area; in case selections in all areas turn out to be correct, a 100% success rate is achieved. The number of potential correct selections is marked in the "Codes" field of each area. Participation through Full Development Permutations Systems is always in the form of ΑΧΒήΑΧΒΧC and is achieved under the following conditions:
1. In each Permutations System, the sum of numbers referring to potential successful selections, in all marked areas, should equal 6 (LOTTO game 6 out of 49)
2. The selected numbers should not exceed 49.
3. The numbers marked in each field of 49 should not be the same as the numbers marked in each one of the other similar fields.
The rest of the areas on the playslip, with the exception of the ones the system is developed, must remain blank.
Participation using Full Development Permutations System
Area Α– potential successful selections 3 out of 5 / 10 columns
Area Β– potential successful selections 2 out of 4 / 6 columns
Area C – potential successful selections 1 out of 3 / 3 columns
Participation through Full Development and Standard Permutations System
Area Α– potential successful predictions 3 out of 3 / 1 column
Area Β– potential successful predictions 2 out of 10 / 5 columns (using the standard system "Code 10")
Area C – potential successful predictions 1 out of 4 / 4 columns
Selection of Random Numbers
The field "Lucky Dip" is available in every matrix area:
Α. By selecting "Lucky Dip" without marking any digits in a matrix area, the terminal generates a single column by randomly selecting six (6) numbers from 1 to 49.
Β. By selecting "Lucky Dip" and a number out of 49, the terminal will generate a full system consisting of a random selection of numbers from 1 to 49, that will be as many as the selected number indicates.
C. By selecting "Lucky Dip" and a Standard System code, the terminal will generate as many random numbers as the ones corresponding to the selected system, e.g. for system 58 the numbers generated should be 12 (132 columns).
NOTE: The number you select should be greater than/ equal to 6. For example, by selecting 9, a full system with 9 randomly selected number will be generated (84 columns).
Participation in Consecutive or / and Future Draws
You also have the possibility, using the same playslip, to participate in up to 74 consecutive draws, starting from the current or a future draw (up to 55 draws following the current one), by completing the corresponding fields. Theselectionsgothroughacumulativeprocess.
Participation in consecutive or/and future draws applies to all areas of the playslip and to PROTO game, when the player participates in it.
Partial Invalidation of Selections
By selecting ‘VOID' in one or more Matrix areas, the terminal does not enter the data of that (those) particular area(s) in the system upon validation of the playslip. Therefore, an area that is accidentally marked can be deselected without invalidating the whole playslip.
Participation in PROTO game through LOTTO playslip
There is also the option to participate in the game PROTO, by marking the area at the bottom left side of a LOTTO playslip.
The selections in this area go through a cumulative process. You can play up to 1936 consecutive PROTO numbers. If, for instance, you mark the numbers 5, 20 and 500 on the PROTO area of a LOTTO playslip, you participate in PROTO with 525 consecutive numbers, starting from the randomly selected initial number.
NOTE: In case of participating in PROTO through JOKER, LOTTO, PROPO and PROPOGOAL playslips, two (2) Participation Receipts should be printed out, one for each kind of game.
