The Romanian Lottery’s History
The official organizer of all lotto related activities in the country, the Romanian Lottery started out as a charity establishment. Tickets were sold through churches, small value prizes were distributed, and the rest of the funds were spent on charitable actions, helping those in need.
The Romanian Lottery as an institution was founded during the period between the two World Wars as a response to the nation’s interest in other European lotteries. Despite the means of transportation scarcity at that time, Romanians were travelling to the neighboring countries to this effect.
Along the history, the Romanian Lottery got involved in different cultural and charitable projects, helping writers and musicians, but also raising funds for building/renovations landmarks like the Romanian Athenaeum, the Saint Joseph Catholic Cathedral in Bucharest, the Romanian Cultural League, etc.
Currently, Lotto Romania offers a few games, but the most popular game is the national lottery’s 6/49. Romanian Lotto 6/49 draws happen twice a week, on Thursday and Sunday, and all players wait for them to see who takes the jackpot or one of the many secondary prizes.
Lotto Romania Rules
One of the great advantages Lotto 6/49 Romania offers is the easy-to-play format. Players have to choose 6 numbers from a 1-49 range, and correctly guess all of them in order to win the big prize. However, Romania Lotto fans can cash in one of the secondary prizes if they have at least three of the winning lotto numbers on a single line. Remember that the ticket contains 3 lines; the numbers on each of the lines are considered separately when evaluating the ticket’s winning status.

Despite what some might think, 13 is the most frequently drawn lotto number in this East European country, followed by 33, 36, 12, 29, and 48. According to the statistics, those who bet on numbers belonging to the upper end of the range could be favored by the odds.
Although the difference is not significant, odd numbers seem to bring more luck than the even ones. Statistics have shown that in 1200 lotto draws, 51% of the numbers were odd and 49% of them even.
