How to Play
One of the most popular games is La Primitiva where players are required to select six main numbers between 1 and 49. Jackpots, which are worth a minimum of €3 million, are won by matching all six main numbers and the Reintegro number, which is randomly assigned to each ticket. In the event that no player matches the winning jackpot numbers, the top prize will roll over to the following draw. To date, the largest La Primitiva jackpot stands at €66.6 million and was won by a single ticket holder on Saturday 3rd August 2013.
