What is KENO-Sportloto?
KENO-Sportloto is a number drawing lottery held in real time. This lottery is special because of the huge field for choosing numbers — from 1 to 80 — the many different ways to play, and the 37 categories for lottery prize.
The cost of a bet is 10 rubles and does not depend on how you play. When placing a bet you use the multiplier, which increases the amount of potential lottery prizes. The biggest prize — 10 million rubles — happens when you guess 10 numbers out of 10 and apply a 10-times multiplier.
This lottery is special because you can win even if you don’t get anything right!
The lottery prize combination is chosen by a random number generator (RNG).
The rules of KENO-Sportloto are a harmonious combination of principles with which you are already familiar from games in our lottery supermarket. First you choose how many numbers you’re going to bet. This is like Top 3, but there are 10 ways to play. Then you choose the number of numbers between 1 and 80. This is like Russian Lotto, but you choose all the numbers yourself. The most you can choose is 10 numbers. And the lottery prize combination is 20 numbers! And now that’s not like anything else.
How to play?
The goal of the game is to guess as many numbers as you can in a bet where you’re already decided how many numbers you will choose and try. The cost of one bet in one field is 10 rubles, regardless of the number of numbers you choose.
The playing card has two playing fields, the cost of each of which does not depend on the number of numbers chosen and remains at 10 rubles. By using the multiplier you increase both the cost of the bet and the size of your potential lottery prizes.
There are four stages to placing each bet
1. On the horizontal line of the playing card choose a number of numbers between 1 and 10 that you are planning to guess.
2. Select your numbers between 1 and 80 on the playing field in the amount that you have already chosen in step 1. If you would like the computer to choose them for you, use the Automatic option.
3. Use the multiplier in a factor of 1 to 10 for 1 to 100 drawings.
4. Place your bet in the basket and complete payment.
The lottery prize combination is composed of 20 numbers. The more numbers in your bet that match the numbers in the lottery prize combination, the higher your lottery prizes will be. And if you bet 7, 8, 9, or 10 numbers and none of them are correct, you will still win 20 rubles. Unbelievable, but that’s KENO!
What can you win?
Lottery prizes in KENO-Sportloto are fixed and do not depend on the number of entries in a drawing. The more numbers you choose and guess, the more you win. The maximum win is 10 million rubles and is only possible if you guess 10 out of 10 correct and use a 10-times multiplier.
There are 37 lottery prize categories in KENO-Sportloto, and four of them are paid on bets where you chose between 7 and 10 numbers and none of them were correct.
The amount of your lottery prizes are at the junction of the number of correct numbers and the column which shows the number of selected numbers when placing the bet. If you applied a multiplied, then you multiply the amount shown in the table by the figure of your multiplier.
For example: you chose 8 numbers with a multiplier of 5, and you got 6 right. Without the multiplier you would have won 300 rubles, but with the multiplier you get 1,500 rubles.
