The Romania- Lotto History

The Romanian Lottery, as it is known today, was founded at the end of the last century in 1999. However, the lottery’s origins can be traced back to the beginning of the 20th century, when a sort of lottery was established by the Romanian Church. The funds obtained from lottery tickets sales were used to help the poor families of a certain neighborhood, and the prizes consisted of different types of products like a few meters of fabric, clothing or household items.

Later on, these prizes became more valuable, taking the form of bikes and motorbikes, cars and holidays abroad. Even nowadays, on the occasion of certain special lotto draws like the Easter, and New Year’s Eve Super draws, or the 1st of March Special Draw, lottery winners can receive their prize in the form of a car, or of an apartment in the Lotto Building located in the center of Bucharest.

The record jackpot registered so far by the Romanian Lottery was won back in January 2008, with the following set of lotto numbers: 36, 6, 47, 24, 20 and 2. A lucky resident of the Romanian capital cashed in € 12.45 million (€9.3 million after tax deduction).
