Central Europe's Best Lotteries
Lotteries of the World Part Two
In part one of our Lotteries of the World series we took you on a whirlwind tour around the planet, whisking you away to sunny Brazil to visit the Mega Sena before making a sharp turn north, to snowy Scandanavia, home of the Swedish Lotto. This time around we're going to concentrate solely on Central Europe - with three exciting new lotteries to play.
In part two of our series we're going to look at three great lotteries that offer lots of great chances to win, and all at low prices, one from Austria and two from Poland.
6 / 45 – From Austria
The Austrian Lotto (6 aus 45) is a very simple lottery game with a low price and good odds. To play just pick six numbers out of a range of one to 45 – simple!
The jackpot odds are 1 : 8,145,060, highly favourable for a lottery. There's also a special bonus number, which is drawn after the main six numbers.
The Austrian Lotto also has added games giving you more chances to win. The special Joker game corresponds to a second draw. To win you must get all the numbers drawn in the correct sequence.
It costs just $2 to play the basic game and $4 to play the basic game plus the Joker, which is the default option when playing at Lottoland. You can opt to disable the Joker game if you so wish, or you can enable up to two extra sets of Joker numbers to maximise your chances of winning.
The Austrian Lotto has eight prize divisions; simply guess the bonus ball number to win the lowest prize division, which will refund you the base ticket price. The odds of this are 1 : 16, meaning you have a one in 16 chance of breaking even when you play, and one in 12 chance of winning any prize.
Overall this is a pleasant and highly affordable game that's also very easy to play and one of our easiest lotteries to win.

Lotto – From Poland
Another big winner in price terms, the Polish Lotto costs just $1.25 to play and, for that price, you could become a millionaire many times over.
The Polish Lotto isn't just cheap, it's also very easy to play. Just pick six numbers from one to 49. Pay an extra $0.50 and you can enter the Lotto Plus draw. That makes the cost $1.75 total for two chances to win big.
The minimum jackpot is 2 million Polish Zloty, which, at the time of writing comes to around $680,000. The highest jackpot was 56 million zloty, approximately $18.9 million.
There is no maximum jackpot and therefore it can rise and rollover indefinitely if not won. The odds of winning are 1 : 13,983,815 and altogether there are four prize divisions.
If you are a Polish national living here no doubt you are already aware of how great this lottery is. So you will be delighted to hear that you can now play the Polish Lotto from Australia at Lottoland.

Mini Lotto – From Poland
Another Polish favourite (and even cheaper still!) the Polish Mini Lotto is a highly popular game both in Poland and throughout other Lottoland markets due to its exceptionally low price. At just $0.50 per play it's Lottoland's cheapest lottery. Indeed I challenge you to try and remember the last time you paid just $0.50 for anything, if you can do it's probably a few decades at least. And I'll bet it sure wasn't something that could help you win $100,000!
To play just pick five numbers between one and 42 for your chance to win from one of three prize divisions. Match all five to win jackpots of up to $100,000.
The low price isn't the only reason for the popularity of the Polish Mini Lotto, the odds of winning the jackpot are also exceptionally low compared to other lotteries at just 1 : 850,668.
Best of all the draw is held every day of the week. So you can play the Polish Mini Lotto from Monday right through to Sunday for $3.50 a week!
