The €500,000 Jackpot in the newly revamped Quaterno game held on Saturday 23rd July was won for the first time by three players just two weeks since its launch.

Three local players who bought their tickets from Zejtun and Birgu, have come forward to collect the amazing sum of €166,666 each. The participants matched their four numbers with the 5 drawn numbers in the Lotto Quaterno, 1-10-16-20-55.


Two of the three winners were interviewed by the National Lottery separately. Both players were visibly delighted to have won with the new company as they play the same numbers in Lotto on a weekly basis. The numbers chosen by the players are all related to birthdays of their family members.

One of the players was watching the draw live on TVM, when she discovered that four of the drawn winning numbers on the screen match the four numbers on her ticket. Another player was told the winning numbers by one of her family members whilst checking the Lotto results on the website.

While claiming their prize, the players expressed their happiness with the result, citing also the improved odds of winning the jackpot with the new Lotto Quaterno format as opposed to the previous format adopted by the previous lottery operator.

Their dream of winning the jackpot turned into a reality as the odds of guessing the first prize category improved.

The players, who are retired, expressed the same wish of sharing the money with their families.

The next Lotto draw and the opportunity to win the €500,000 fixed Quaterno jackpot is scheduled for this evening at 8:40pm following the TVM evening news.
