Bulgarian state lottery jackpot hits 6.75M leva

Written by on July 16, 2015 in Bulgaria - Comments Off on Bulgarian state lottery jackpot hits 6.75M leva

An estimated 6.75 million leva, or about 3.45 million euro, will be up for grabs in one of the jackpots of the Bulgarian state lottery at the next draw on July 16.

This would make it the fourth highest jackpot in the history of the second draw of the 6 of 49 game, but still well short of the record 9.47 million leva in November 2012, when the jackpot was split by two winners.

The Bulgarian Sports Totalisator was founded in 1957 and is the main sponsor of the Bulgarian Olympic Committee and other sport bodies in the country, which make it the main source of financing for sport in Bulgaria. It falls under the jurisdiction of the Sports Ministry.

It operates a national system for spreading of lottery games (called ‘toto’ in Bulgarian) – the digital games 6/49, 5/35 and 6/42, all with a rising jackpot and twice-a-week draws, on Thursdays and Sundays.
