Happy birthday to our first online lottery ticket! Here are some of the key milestones in its history
A Hitch-hiker’s guide to the Stoloto Galaxy: Seven years of cosmic journeys
On April 12, 1961, the first man flew into space. On that very day, 49 years later, we saw another great event — the first ever online sale of a Russian lottery ticket.
It’s hard to believe that we’ve already spent seven years exploring the Stoloto galaxy and discovering new frontiers. We have our ‘Planet of Winners’, our ‘Cosmic App’ and many more. And our astrology closely follows every draw, so none of our winners go without the prizes they are due.

Everybody on the Planet of Winners has a unique and interesting story. Today, let’s look at one of them — the story of the Selikhov family.
This young couple from Michurinsk (Tambov Region) took the advice of their relatives and had a go on Russian Lotto. The Selikhovs bought their first ticket on the Stoloto site and immediately won a prize. It’s true that this wasn’t a huge win, but the next ticket — for the 1,123rd drawing of Russian Lotto — won five million rubles! That ticket was also purchased online, and helped that lucky young family to build a house.
But do you know what makes this story really special? The Selikhovs kept on playing, certain that they would get lucky one more time. And they were right! Just four months later, in the 1,139th drawing, the couple won a car. That ticket, as usual, was bought from the website.
Now the Selikhovs joke that they have disproved an age-old theory €— lightning can strike twice.
The number of winners, and the number of lottery entrants, gets bigger and bigger every day. We’d like to thank everyone who trusts us and trusts their luck. In our first seven years, we’ve had some great results. But we are sure that there’s even greater success — for us and especially for you — in the future. Are you with us? Let’s go!
