Loteria Nacional is a lottery game popular in Ecuador. The draws take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 18:00 local time.
The tickets cost $10 for the draws that take place on Mondays and Fridays and $20 for the draws that take place on Wednesdays. You can take part in the lottery for just $1, but it comes at a price. If you buy a ticket for so little money and win, you will only win 10% and 5% of the respective prizes.
In order to take part in Loteria Nacional, you have to purchase a ticket from your local lottery vendor. You can purchase your ticket online, too. However, you will need to do it quickly, as just one hundred thousand entries are available for each draw!
Loteria Nacional has a fixed jackpot. You can win $200,000 on Mondays and Fridays and $500,000 on Wednesdays. The last Wednesday of the year is an exception to that rule, as the draw that takes place on that day has a jackpot of $1,000,000.
