Lottario does not get a lot of love. Lotto 6/49 is popular thanks to its higher prizes, but many repeat lottery winners will tell you to play the smaller lotteries. Lotto 6/49 and Lottario winning numbers are six plus a bonus for every draw. While this does make them comparable, they are two entirely different games.
Lottario only costs a dollar and gives you two sets of six numbers. The first set of numbers you choose and the second set is randomly chosen for you. The minimum jackpot is $250,000, and the Lottario winning numbers are drawn once each week. There is an early bird jackpot that can increase the chances that you have of winning. The Early Bird Lottario winning numbers are drawn the Friday before, and you need to have all four of the numbers to win.
The cost of a Lotto 6/49 ticker is $3, and there is a $1 million prize guaranteed. The jackpot starts at $5 million, and you can easily win a free play by matching two numbers. So, the odds of winning a Lotto 6/49 prize are better at 1 in 6.6, whereas Lottario is 1 in 21. Winning numbers for Lotto 6/49 are drawn on Wednesday and Saturday.
It is easy to say that Lotto 6/49 is the better option if you are looking to win a huge amount of money. However, the amount of times that the prize is split will affect the amount of money that you win. The huge prizes of Lotto 6/49 have made more people buy a ticket, which increases the odds that there is going to be a split jackpot. This can be hugely disappointing, especially for groups of people who play the lottery together – but they are splitting their tickets in the first place anyway!
Smaller lotteries like Lottario have the huge benefit of having fewer players. This does lower the jackpot amounts, but it also means that split jackpots are less likely to happen. If a split jackpot does happen, it will be with fewer people, so you win about the same as you would with a huge Lotto 6/49 jackpot split with many people. The splitting of a jackpot is not what most people think about when they play the lottery, because what are the chances of it happening? The chances depend on the lottery, and they had on most draws.
The other reasons why you should play smaller lotteries like Lottario if you want to win are your chances and the amount you are paying. Repeat lottery winners are becoming more common because they understand how to play the game. Smaller lotteries are easier to win, because of the lower price and the lower amount of people playing. Lottario gives you four ways of winning a jackpot if you buy an Early Bird ticket. You can also buy three tickets for the same price as one Lotto 6/49 ticket. This means that you have 12 chances of winning the jackpot. The more tickets that you have with unique combinations of numbers, the better your chances of winning are.
Lottario may not have the huge prizes of Lotto 6/49, but smaller prizes mean less of a chance that you will be splitting a prize if you win. The early bird jackpot can also increase your chances of winning. The best option for you will depend on what you are looking for in your lottery game, but playing both can improve your odds of winning.
