If you play France Lotto you will be participating in a draw that began way back in 1976. Remarkably there is some evidence of lottery games in France as far back as the early sixteenth century when King Francis the First was supposedly involved in their initial development. Those who play France Lotto in the modern era must make two decisions. The first is to select 5 numbers from a possible guess range of 1 to 49, the second is to select what is known as the ‘’lucky’’ number and this must be a number between 1 and 10. To land the jackpot players must match the five numbers drawn from drum 1 and the lucky number drawn from drum 2. The jackpot in this game starts at an excellent figure of 2 million Euros and increases by 1 million Euros every time it isn’t won. If you choose to play French Lotto you will no doubt be dreaming of landing the sensational top prize, the record jackpot in this draw is a magnificent 24 million Euros and was won on June 6th 2011. Those who play France Lotto have every right to be ambitious as since the French moved to the Euro in 2002 this draw has catapulted over 150 lucky players into the dizzying heights of multimillionaire status.
