Q

What is a Quick Draw?

A

A Quick Draw is a lottery-style game that functions similar to a lottery but with some crucial differences.

  • Quick Draws take place every hour, every day of the week.
  • Draws are not organized by an official lottery operator.
  • You make bets on the outcome of a lottery-style draw.
  • There are no actual tickets.
  • Winning numbers are determined by a random number generator (RNG).
  • Prizes are paid by theLotter.
  • Small prizes are paid from revenues, larger prizes are insured.

Q

Why should I play Quick Draws?

A

Quick Draws are exciting lottery-style draws and here's why you should play them:

  • No need to wait around for a draw to take place.
  • There’s a new game to play every hour of the day!
  • Same game rules, odds of winning, and prizes as some of your favourite lotteries!
  • 24 chances a day to win a huge jackpot!

Q

How are the prizes set in Quick Draws?

A

EuroMillions GO!, EuroJackpot GO!, and Germany Lotto GO! offer the same huge jackpots, secondary prizes, and chances of winning as those of their underlying lotteries. When the jackpots of EuroMillions, EuroJackpot and Germany Lotto roll over, the jackpots of the corresponding Quick Draws roll over as well. When the EuroMillions, EuroJackpot, and/or Germany Lottery jackpots are won, the jackpots of the Quick Draws are reset as well. EuroMillions GO! resets to €17 million; EuroJackpot GO! resets to €10 million; and Germany Lotto GO! resets to €1 million.

Q

How are the numbers chosen in a Quick Draw?

A

theLotter uses random number generator (RNG) technology to produce the results of each Quick Draw. This technology is provided by European Lotto and Betting Limited (ELBL), a company officially licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority. The winning numbers in each lottery-style draw are drawn by this certified and tested random number generator, based on the specific game rules of each Quick Draw game.

Q

Where can I find Quick Draws?

A

The available Quick Draws are displayed on the homepage of our site. If you don’t see Quick Draws, it is because Quick Draws are not available in your jurisdiction due to regulatory reasons.
