How to Play

Taking part in Lotto China could not be simpler. As an online game, you can enjoy it in a matter of seconds. You don’t need to go to a retailer - all you need is a computer, smartphone or tablet - so you can play from the comfort of your own house or while you are out on the move.

It does not matter which part of China you are located in, while you can even take part from outside the country. The game is aimed at all Chinese people. You just have to be at least 18 years old to take part.

To play, select six numbers from 1 to 50, followed by a Fú Ball from a separate set between 1 and 5. You can choose your own numbers or get a random selection. Choose how many draws to enter and purchase your entries.

Draws take place every Tuesday and Friday at 16:30 CET. It costs €0.50 (approximately ¥3.82) per entry to play. Go to the How to Play page for more information about playing Lotto China.


You win Lotto China prizes by matching your numbers to the winning numbers. Match all six main numbers and the Fú Ball to win the jackpot, which is worth at least €500,000 (approximately ¥3.8 million) in every draw.

The jackpot is shared if there are multiple players who match all the numbers. If there are no winners, it does not roll over to the following draw. However, special events are sometimes held in which the jackpot will be increased to an even larger amount. It does not even cost any more to enter these special draws.

As well as the jackpot, you can also win prizes for matching just the Fú Ball or two main numbers. The overall odds of winning a prize are just 1 in 3.

If you match two numbers, you win €0.50 (approximately ¥3.82), while the prize for matching the Fú Ball is a Free Bet Bonus. This gives you one free entry for a future Lotto China draw.

Match two numbers and the Fú Ball and you win both prizes - €0.50 and a Free Bet Bonus. Go to the Prizes page to learn more about how to win prizes.

Claiming Your Winnings

Claiming Lotto China prizes is a straightforward process. If you win the Free Bet Bonus, it will be automatically credited to your online account. You will just need to log in to activate it so that you can enter a future draw.

If you win the cash prize of €0.50, this will also be credited straight into your online account. It is then up to you whether you wish to use your winnings to purchase an entry for the next draw or withdraw them to your bank account.

If you win the jackpot, additional verification checks will be required to prove your age and identity. An agent of Lotto China will contact you directly by telephone to guide you through the process so that the money can be wired to your bank account.

Regardless of which prize you win, you will be notified straight away that you are a winner. This means there is no danger of missing out on a prize. You will also be able to receive your winnings without going out to claim them.
