The Lotto Instant Win games are very unique games that offer you fast, fun and exciting entertainment. The games portfolio contains currently 17 titles which are played from different studios.
Studio 1 has a 48 ball drum with balls numbered from 1-48 and therefore the following games are played:
- Win 5/48
- Win 7/48
- Lucky Six 35/48
- Special Extra Win Jackpot games
Each draw covers all the above 4 games and you can bet on all of them
The game starts with 5 numbers being drawn. If you participate in ‘Win 5/48’ then this part of the draw is relevant for you. You need to choose between 1-5 balls and afterwards bet on how many of your selected ones are drawn. Additionally, you can also bet on colour of the first ball and sum of all 5 balls.
Next another 30 balls are pulled out of the drum. This activates the games ‘Lucky Six 35/48’. To participate you select between 6-15 balls. If at least six of your predicted numbers are drawn you win.
After the initial 35 balls another 7 balls are drawn. This activates the game ‘Win 7/48’. To enter you select between 1 and 15 numbers and then decide how many of your selected numbers are drawn (1-6).
Finally, once only 6 balls are left in the drum the Extra Win Game plays. If you were unlucky and have not had a single match in the Lucky Six game, then you will win the jackpot. In case of more than one lucky looser the jackpot is split equally between the players.
There are several additional quick-fire bets available such as colour of the first ball or sum of the initial five balls in Win 5/48 or over/under bets.
Studio 2 has a 20 ball drum with balls numbered from 1-20 and hosts 2 games:
- Win 5/20
- Win 10/48
The game starts with 5 balls being drawn. Choose between 1 and 5 numbers and decide how many you are predicting correctly. Then place your bet. Secondly, 10 more balls are drawn. This activates Win 10/48. To take part you select up to 8 numbers and bet on how many of these will be pulled from the drum.
Additional bets can be placed on sum of balls or if the first ball features a number higher or lower than 10.5.
A 37 ball drum containing balls with numbers from 0 to 36 is used in Studio 3 to play the game Win 1/37. The game is a bit similar to roulette but you can bet on more colours. There are 7 ball colours in total: 6 balls in each grey, light blue, dark blue, black, red and yellow and 1 pink. In addition to betting on ball colour you can bet on overs/unders and various other options.
Studio 4 has a 80 ball drum with balls numbered from 1 to 80.

- 3 Keno games: Keno 5/80, Keno 10/80 and Keno 20/80
