About Bonoloto

The BonoLoto is a Spanish lottery that offers great excitement for its players with a Jackpot that can roll over as many as six times a week, making for some very attractive prizes. The jackpot starts at around €400,000 and rolls over until it is won.

How to play Bonoloto & odds

The game itself is very simple to play. All you have to do is pick six numbers (from a range of 1 – 49) and in order to win the jackpot, all six main numbers drawn must match your selections. During the draw, a 7th additional number called the Complementario is drawn, and matching this as well as five of the main numbers wins the second tier prize.

Bonoloto also has a Reintegro feature whereby a number (from a range of 0 - 9) is randomly assigned to players tickets, and if the ticket fails to win a prize but matches the drawn Reintegro number, then the player is able to get a refund on the ticket price of € 0.50.

Overall there are five prize categories to be won, with the odds of getting the jackpot being 1 in 13,983,816.
