Greece Lottery – What it’s all about!


Now lotteries are brought to life for two purposes; one to accommodate avid lottery players and second to fund the government to help them carry out the necessary economic growth for the benefit of the entire nation. Apart from the economic benefits, lotteries even benefit educational programs and other cultural activities to keep their system alive. Did you know that the Great Wall of China was also funded by the lottery? Yeah, no joke! Lotteries were there in China during the Han dynasty, which is around 205-187 BC!

Although during those times it was more for the benefit of the country, today’s lotteries are different. Apart from benefitting the country, they also benefit the players! When it comes to the Greece Lottery, apart from being a monopoly, it also has a long history and it is managed by OPAP – short for “Greek Organization of Football Prognostics”. Quoted in Athen’s stock exchange, OPAP is a public company based in the capital of Greece and it has the exclusive rights for the operation of lotteries and sports betting in Greece.

The draws in Greece Lottery take place twice a week, every Wednesday and Saturday and the results are then posted on the Greece Lottery website. With thousands of lottery players in Greece alone, playing the Greece Lottery can be a dream come true thanks to the massive amount of jackpots pooled for the lucky winners! Although the Greece Lottery jackpots aren’t as massive as Mega Millions or Powerball, but it’s still worth it especially if it’s played in a bundle!

Collecting Your Winnings


For prices up to €100 per ticket, the winnings can be collected from the point of sale without displaying any official documents. Those who have won €500 and above, the winnings needs to be collected from OPAP and official documentations must be brought with you. Those who’re lucky enough to win €10,000, the winnings should be collected at a specified bank after payment order is issued by the OPAP. And for prizes over €10,000, together with official documentation, winnings can be collected from the bank specified by OPAP.

Greece Lottery Supports Responsible Gaming


On their website, they mentioned that the game is fun only when you play it responsibly and that’s very true. They continue to state, “Because only when you play responsibly you’re the master of the game! OPAP GROUP of COMPANIES, a strong sense of social responsibility, has taken a series of initiatives to make sure that participation in games of chance remains fun for everyone.” Now isn’t that a relief?!

The Odds of Winning Greece Lottery


Being a very popular game in the Mediterranean, the Greece Lottery gives its avid lottery players five ways to win, minimize taxes as well as get the opportunity to play the internationally recognized 6/49 format!
