What is Sportloto 6 out of 49?

Sportloto 6 out of 49 is a number drawing lottery, to play all you need to do is fill in your playing card and pay for a lottery receipt. The main difference between Sportloto 6 out of 49 and other games where players fill in their own playing combinations is the bonus ball, which the lottery machine picks after the lottery prize 6-figure combination has been chosen. If the number of the bonus ball matches one of the numbers in your bet, in which you already have 5 correct numbers, them the amount of lottery prizes calculated on your five correct numbers increases. The bonus ball is from the same set of balls as the main playing combination, so therefore only in Sportloto 6 out of 49 is it possible to get six figures correct two times (in other words, the six-figure lottery prize combination + a 5 number combination + the bonus ball)!

This makes watching the broadcast especially suspenseful and interesting — for if you get five numbers and didn’t get the sixth, you still have a chance with the bonus ball.

How are the drawings conducted?

The Sportloto 6 out of 49 drawings are held three times per day, at 10:30, 16:30 and 22:30 Moscow Time.The lottery machine is used to determine the lottery prize combination. The accounting of bets and calculating lottery prizes is completely automated and is fraud-proof. Only lottery tickets reflecting players’ chosen playing combinations that have been properly registered in the lottery system and paid for can participate in the prize drawing. Sales for the next drawing are closed 20 minutes before the drawing.

After calculating the number of bets participating in the drawing, the lottery machine determines the lottery prize combination of 6 numbers, and then selects one additional ball. Afterwards the results are automatically calculated and announced by the presenters. The drawing is conducted in the presence of independent observers. After the announcement of the results the observers sign the protocol.

How is the prize fund determined in Sportloto 6 out of 49?

After the lottery prize combination is determined, the results are calculated. Lottery prize bets are those in which 6, 5, 4, or 3 numbers match the lottery prize combination issued by the lottery machine. A lottery prize bet may also be composed of 5 numbers that match the lottery prize combination and one more which matches the bonus ball. The prize fund is 50% of the takings.

Lottery prizes in the game Sportloto 6 out of 49 for three correct numbers are fixed at 375 rubles. Lottery prizes in other categories are determined as a percentage after the lottery prizes for 3 number bets have been calculated. The payout fund for all other categories is determined as the difference between the total amount of the prize fund and the amount to pay out to 3-number bet winners. This fund is distributed between the categories according to the following percentages:

Payouts for 4 correct numbers — 22%
Payouts for 5 correct numbers — 10%
Payouts for 5 correct numbers plus the bonus ball — 16%
Payouts for 6 correct numbers (super prize) 52% + the accumulated superprize

If in the drawing no one gets 6 correct numbers, the accumulated sum rolls over to the next drawing. Therefore the superprize for 6 correct numbers in Sportloto 6 out of 49 rolls over from drawing to drawing until it is won. If no one gets 6 correct numbers for a whole year, a special distribution drawing is held.

The amount of lottery prizes in an accumulator bet (for example 6 correct numbers) is determined in the following way: the number of 6-figure combinations that could be made out of the bet is calculated, after which the lottery prizes on each combination are calculated and the added up for the total win. Then it considers the number of combinations for lottery prize in other categories, and those are added to the sum from the 6 figure wins.

History of the game

The first drawing in the game Sportloto 6 out of 49 took place on October 20, 1970 in the Moscow Central House of Journalists. 1.5 million tickets participated in the drawing! All 6 numbers were guessed. The winner was a Moscow woman, whose profession — engineer-economist — was indirectly connected with numbers. She won 5,000 rubles — a huge amount of money in those days! This was equivalent to three years’ wages for a Soviet engineer, or 62 pairs of imported women’s shoes, or the cost of a new Moskvich car.

Up until 1974 drawings were held in Palaces of Sport and in Stadiums in various cities in the USSR and the results were published in national newspapers. The first drawing to be broadcast on television was held on January 10, 1974. And from then on every Sunday morning millions of Sportloto fans across the country tuned in and counted the numbers on their tickets.

After the success of Sportloto 6 out of 49, other new lotteries arose — the games 5 out of 36 and 6 out of 45. There was a real frenzy. 70% of the population of the USSR played Sportloto. Up to 10 million tickets played in each drawing.


The Sportloto Lottery in the USSR was a good example of charity. The money earned through Sportloto was used in Moscow to build most of the sporting arenas for the 1980 Olympic Games. With the advent of Perestroika, the popularity of the lottery began to decline and the drawings were stopped.
Interest began to come back a quarter of a century later. In 2010 the decision was made to hold a state lottery to support the Sochi 2014 XXII Olympic Winter Games and the XI Paralympic Winter Games. In February 2011 the Sportloto Instant Lottery was launched, and in October the first drawings of Sportloto 6 out of 49 and Keno-Sportloto were held.
Since February 2013 playing has been open for Sportloto 6 out of 49 on the lottery supermarket website.
