Where to buy Mauritius Loto Tickets?
An important point is that you do not buy the ticket! The participation forms are available at all shops, supermarkets and lottery retailers but are free. You will only pay when you have already filled the form and submitting it back to participate.
How to play the Mauritius Loto Lottery?
The form that you will get will look like the one below. Each form allows you to be eligible for 5 chances. For example you can take it like one form consists of 5 lotteries. Note again that this form is FREE. You will notice that the form consists of 5 separated sections.
In each section, there are numbers from 1 to 40. To participate, you will need to select 6 numbers from each of the 5 sections. As in the picture above, you see that in the first section, the person has ticked 6 numbers, that is, 7, 13, 22, 25, 29 and 32.
Again in the next section he will choose 6 numbers. You can choose the same numbers in all 5 sections (useless in my opinion) or choose different ones in each however it must be 6 numbers per section only.
How do I pay for the Mauritius Loto Lottery?
So once you have filled your form, it is time to submit it. To submit your form, you will have to pay. As I said above, the form is free however you will pay when you are submitting it. With the traditional lottery you used to pay as you buy it. However here it is like the Football Pool one.
Each section you play cost Rs 20. For example on one form you have 5 sections. So if you play the form completely it costs you Rs 100. You can also choose to play only one section of the form and then pay only Rs 20.
Where to pay for the Mauritius Loto Lottery?
You will have to return the form and pay for it at the retailer where you got your form. For example if you got your form at Winners Port Louis, you can return it there itself but you can also return it to another retailer. It is not necessary that you submit the form at the same place you got it.
Once you have paid for the submission you will get a receipt like the one shown above. You need to keep this receipt to be able to claim your jackpot in case you win.
When will the draw be done?
The draw will be done live on MBC TV 1 every Saturday at around 20:20 after the National News broadcast. During the draw, 6 numbers will be randomly listed. If all the 6 numbers match anyone of a selection you placed per group, you win the jackpot. Even if only 5 or 4 or 3 numbers are matched, you shall get a complimentary jackpot.
Not complicated at all. If you are used to football pool or even horse racing betting in Mauritius, you will find this easy. Any question? Feel free to ask in the comment section below and I’ll try my best to answer it asap. Note however that this game is not allowed to people under 18 year old.
The National Lottery also has a hotline which you can call for further clarification at 800 0640 – Good luck if you are playing.
