The changes are being introduced to create more winners, with the odds of claiming any prize having been slashed from 1 in 20 under the old SiVinceTutto rules to 1 in 6 from now on. The previous odds of winning the jackpot stood at 1 in 622,614,630 when players had to choose and match six numbers, but that has shortened to a much more favourable 1 in 673,825.
SiVinceTutto prizes are won for matching anything from two numbers upwards and all of the money in the prize fund for the draw must be paid out on the night. If there is no jackpot winner, the top prize is redistributed amongst the players in the other prize tiers. Similarly, if there is no jackpot or Match 5 winner, the percentage of the fund designated to the other categories is adjusted accordingly. You can find out more about how the prize levels are determined at the SiVinceTutto page.
Tickets for the game remain at €5 and players can play up to five draws in advance. It is possible to choose more than twelve numbers on your SiVinceTutto playslip, playing every different combination of twelve numbers within that selection. For example, picking 13 numbers would create 13 lines at a cost of €65 and choosing 14 numbers generates 91 different combinations for €455. Ticket holders who play these SiVinceTutto systems hope that the increased chances of winning prizes will offset the price of playing so many lines in one draw.
The first draw under the new SiVinceTutto rules takes place tonight in Rome and you can buy tickets online or from authorised retailers in Italy. You can find the results afterwards at the SiVinceTutto Results page.
