Israel - New Lotto Information

The Israel New Lotto has been played for more than half a century and is the longest running lottery in the Middle East. It offers a traditional play format, attractive jackpots, as well as noteworthy winning odds.

Israel New Lotto History

The Israel New Lotto was introduced soon after the creation of its host country, the State of Israel. Informally launched in 1951 by the Mifal Hapayis Company to help build a hospital in Tel-Aviv, the company quickly became committed to supporting a wide variety of communal efforts. While funds from the Israel New Lotto were initially portioned to health agencies, with the continuous growth of the county, the proceeds began to benefit other social projects as well.

The lottery did not undergo any major changes until 2009 when its name was changed to the “New Lotto” and the number matrix was altered to allow for higher first, second and third place wins. Originally players selected 6/34 numbers and an additional ‘chazak’ (meaning “strong” in Hebrew) number from 1-10; however, following the 2009 updates, players now select 6/37 with an additional ‘chazak’ number from 1-7.

Historical highlights are available for world lottery draws here.

Israel New Lotto Rules

To play Israel New Lotto online, players select six numbers from a guess range of 1-37 as well as an additional ‘chazak’ number from 1-7 which is needed to win the jackpot as well as the third, fifth and seventh place secondary prizes. Those who enjoy the Israel New Lotto may want to try its sister lotto, the Israel Double Lotto, which allows players to double the Israel Lotto's jackpots.

Winning the Israel New Lotto

To win the jackpot, players must match 6/37 numbers as well as an additional ‘chazak’ number from a matrix of 1-7. All wins under NIS 5,000 are tax free, with a 25% tax in place for wins above NIS 5,000. The highest jackpot of NIS 16 million was won on October 27th in 2007 by a single winner.
