All about Hungarian Lottery Games
The lottery is a way of raising money by means of selling various tickets that are numbered. Then prizes are given to a few numbers that are randomly drawn. A number of countries officially run such lotteries. One such country is Hungary.
History of the lottery in Hungary
There is no record of starting of a lottery prior to 1763 in this country. The first draw was said to be held in 1770 in Buda the capital city of Hungary then. In 1868 the Hungarian royal lottery board was created.

Hungary 4D introduced lottery in 1947 and Ötöslottó the lotto 5 in 1957. This was a brand new lottery game at the time and is one of the
most favorites in Hungary even today. Hatos lotto was introduced in 1988. It was known as Lottó 6 which is equally popular like the
Ötöslottó. The affairs of the lotto Hungary games were looked after by the national savings bank – Országos Takarék Pénztár – till 1991.

Then Szerncsejáték was made the Hungarian national lottery administrator. The state of Hungary owns this body fully. It is responsible for
the administration and creation of the Hungary lottery games entirely.
Various kinds of games offered
Different kinds of games are offered by Szerncsejáték. They include, Eurojackpot – the multinational game, Ötöslottó – the national game,
Keno, Joker, Luxor, Puttó and so on. People can play whichever game interests them and earn some prizes too.

When Hatos Lotto was introduced a 6/45+1 dual matrix was drawn. Then a bonus number was used to find out the prizes on the second
level for the people whom the five numbers matched in addition to a bonus number.

In July the bonus was removed by Szerncsejáték. Thus it changed to the format it is presented today. The draws are held once a week at
3.50 p.m. Hungarian time every Sunday.

In 1993 joker option was introduced thus entailing the buyer of lotteries with many more options to win prizes.
