How Do I Fill in My Mon&Wed Lotto Ticket at Lottoland®?
To fill in your Monday/Wednesday Lotto ticket simply click inside the numbered grid just as you would mark numbers on a paper lotto ticket. Each number on the grid corresponds to the number you can pick. You can also opt to play a quick pick game by clicking on the Quick +1 button.
Clicking on more than the regular six numbers will automatically activate a System Bet, or system entry. This will allow you to enter more numbers into the next draw in multiple combinations increasing your odds of winning significantly, albeit for a higher ticket price.
Once you’re happy with your pick click on the Submit button. Beforehand you also have the option of setting your Duration and Participation settings (e.g. if you wish to participate in the Monday Lotto, the Wednesday Lotto, or both) along with the ability play via Subscription.
For more information on these settings please click on the Play Mon/Wed Lotto button on the top left of the main page area to go to the main Monday/Wednesday Lotto page then scroll down to find full details of these options.
What Is a Subscription?
Subscriptions remove the hassle of buying repeat lines and the fear of missing out on that big jackpot win. Our Subscription feature allows you to set up a running bet or bets on a given lottery draw. The subscription is open ended and will run for as long as you want it to. You can opt out at any time and cancel the subscription in your player account.

What Is the DoubleJackpot Feature?
The DoubleJackpot feature allows you to go for twice the official lottery jackpot. So, for instance, if the official draw is $1 million and you bet on the outcome with us and activate the DoubleJackpot feature, you will go for a jackpot of $2 million. The prizes for all other tiers will remain the same.
You will pay double the price of your normal game to activate the DoubleJackpot feature. For more information about this feature please refer to Double Jackpot Explained.
What Is the NumberShield Feature?
Don't want to share the jackpot with other winners? Our special NumberShield feature allows you to protect your numbers in the event of a jackpot win. If you activate this feature you will win the entire jackpot in division 1, even if other players chose the same numbers. Only one player can select the NumberShield feature for a specific set of numbers. If another player has already shielded a specific set of numbers no other player will be able to shield the same numbers for the respective draw.
NumberShield can be chosen for a particular game field or complete ticket and will occur an additional cost added to the ticket price. NumberShield and DoubleJackpot cannot be selected on the same ticket. For more information see our article Never share a jackpot.
What Does "Participation: When Jackpot Is" mean?
This option allows you to only participate when the jackpot is a set amount or higher. So if you choose $7 million, you will only enter the next draw when the jackpot is at a minimum of $7 million.
