The Greece Joker Lotto was launched in 1997 by OPAP which has been running the Greece lotto since it was founded in 1958.
The Greek Joker Lotto is a 5/45 plus 1/20 powerball style lotto game and in order to play, you need to pick five numbers between 1 and 45 and one number between 1 and 20 (Joker). If you match all five numbers and the Joker with those drawn in the game, you'll win the Greece Joker jackpot!
The Joker lotto is played twice per week on Thursdays and Sundays.
The Greece Joker jackpot starts at 300,000 euros and a rollover occurs each time it is not won. There is no cap on the Greek Joker lotto and it continues to rollover until it is won!
The overall odds of winning any prize is 1 in 53.
You can win a prize just by matching any number plus the Joker number.
Up until the age of the internet and online ticket vendors, you had to be in Greece to buy Greek Lotto tickets. Not any more! Now, thanks to internet technology, anyone can play the Greece Joker Lottery online from anywhere in the world. This is done by using a certified online lottery ticket agent such as 'theLotter'.
