Italy Winning Numbers
Italy Lottery Games
Lotteries have been played in Italy since the early 16th century, but it wasn’t until 1734 that organized regular games actually took place. Since then, the number and frequency of games has grown to the point that Italians now have the opportunity to play a lottery game every five minutes if they wish!
Lotteries in Italy are administered by two operators, Lottomatica and the Sisal Group.
Lotto is Italy’s main national lottery game, with a unique format that gives players various opportunities to win. During Lotto, 11 sets of numbers are drawn: one from a national lottery wheel and another 10 numbers from wheels named after different Italian cities.
Players can choose random numbers from random wheels, or go for specific numbers from specific wheels. Playing Lotto with an “Ambetto” wins prizes if the exact number is drawn, but also pays out prizes for numbers immediately before or after the chosen number; i.e., if 9 is selected, players win if 8, 9 or 10 are drawn.

MillionDAY is a popular daily draw game that gives players a chance to win a fixed €1 million jackpot plus a range of secondary prizes, all for a ticket price of just €1.00. MillionDAY is a unique game, with players able to enter a maximum of 200 numbers with the same combination if they wish!
10e Lotto is perhaps the most unique lottery game in the world, giving players a chance to win draws that take place every five minutes, 24 hours a day!
10e Lotto also allows players to:
- Choose their own stake, in €0.50 increments from €1.00 to €200.
- Choose the number of selections they wish to make between 1 and 10, from a pool of 90 numbers.
Twenty numbers are drawn each game, with available prizes being dependent on the number of selections and the initial stake. A winning jackpot of just €3.00 is at stake, but also as much as €5 million can be won!
SuperEnalotto is, by some distance, the most difficult lottery in the world to win, with eye-watering odds of winning the jackpot of 1 in 622,614,630! However, with tickets costing just €1.00, it is also one of the country’s most popular games and is often responsible for enormous jackpots due to the frequency of rollovers.
For players who want to participate in SuperEnalotto from outside of Italy, note that ticket sales close a number of hours before each draw, in comparison to local sales that close 30 minutes beforehand.
Italy was a founding member of EuroJackpot, with players having participated from the first draw onwards in March 2012. In addition to Italy, EuroJackpot is available in a further 17 countries, having remained popular thanks to its generous starting jackpot, long odds and frequent rollovers, although none of the biggest jackpots have been won in Italy itself to date.
Although EuroJackpot doesn’t have any secondary games, players can win prizes at 12 different tiers!

Is Tax Paid on Italian Lottery Winnings?
Italy has one of the most confusing lottery tax structures in the world, with different rates applying to different games.
For EuroJackpot and Lottomatica games, an 8% tax applies to all prizes. Players should be aware that websites providing Lottomatica games advertise prizes before and after taxation, so it is advised to check before playing.
For SuperEnalotto, a 20% tax applies on all winnings over €500.
Despite the varying rates, all taxes are deducted at source, with players needing to do little else in this respect; however, overseas players should check local tax laws to find out if they need to declare winnings at home.
