10eLotto is a game which is derived from the traditional Lotto and offers players flexibility by providing three different ways to play. Originally launched in 2009, the standard 10eLotto game is based on the results of the ten city Lotto draws, which take place between 20:00 and 20:30 CET on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. 10eLotto also offers 5 minute and Instant Win variations.
To play 10eLotto, you choose a minimum of one up to a maximum of ten numbers from a matrix of 1 to 90. Entry costs between €1 and €200 (in €0.50 increments), depending on how many numbers you choose. For an additional fee, you can also play the Gold (Numero Oro) and Double Gold (Doppio Oro) options on your ticket, for more chances to win and significantly larger prizes of up to €5 million.
There are three ways to play 10eLotto:
Immediate Draw (Estrazione Immediata)
This method allows you to immediately compare the numbers on your card to 20 numbers randomly assigned by the game system at the time of purchase. Tickets are available from 00:00 to 23:59 CET.
Lotto Draw (Estrazione del Lotto)
The 20 numbers that form the 10eLotto result are the first two numbers drawn from each of the ten city Lotto wheels. The National wheel is not used. Duplicate numbers are omitted, so when required, additional numbers are taken from the third numbers drawn from each city wheel, in alphabetical order, starting with Bari. These city draws take place between 20:00 and 20:30 CET on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Ticket sales close at 19:30 CET on the night of a draw, then reopen for the next draw at 21:30 CET.
5 Minute Draw (Estrazione ogni 5 minuti)
The numbers on your ticket are compared to the 20 numbers that appear in the next result drawn, which take place every five minutes. Tickets are available from 00:00 to 23:59 CET.
With all three options, you can play up to 50 draws in advance.
The Gold and Double Gold options provide more chances to win and significantly larger prizes for matching specific numbers. The Gold option is twice the cost of a standard bet, whereas the Double Gold option triples the cost of a standard bet.
For the Lotto draw version of 10eLotto, the Gold Number and Double Gold numbers are the first two numbers drawn from the Bari wheel. For the 5 Minute and Instant Win versions of 10eLotto, 20 numbers are randomly generated, two of which are also highlighted as the Gold Number and Double Gold numbers.

The top prize when playing the standard 10eLotto game is €1 million, which you win by correctly matching all 10 numbers chosen. If you play the Gold Number option, this is increased to €2.5 million, and if you play the Double Gold option, the top prize becomes €5 million.
The prizes depend on how many numbers you select and how many you successfully match in the draw. If you choose to play seven or more numbers, you can even win a prize if you don’t match any of the numbers drawn.
The table below lists the prizes available depending on how many numbers you play and match (based on a €1 standard bet, €2 with the Gold Number option and €3 with the Double Gold option).
