Playing online lotto games in Malaysia is one of the easiest ways to try one's luck at games of chance, including Toto 6/50, 4D Classic, and many more. Arguably, the lotto is the most common form of gambling in the country despite having random results (it is a game of chance).
Malaysian players' favorite lottery games can be classified into two: Jackpot and regular games.
If there is one single reason why gamblers love playing lotto games for a chance to win big, which is possible when playing jackpot games. And while regular wins bring great thrills, it is no secret that most players are after mega jackpots, despite being elusive. Here are the most popular jackpot games in Malaysia.
EuroMillions is no doubt the biggest lottery game on the European continent. It brings together players from various nations across the world, including Malaysia. The game was established in 2014 and is known for some of the biggest payouts in the history of lotteries.
The game allows players to have fun and win twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays when draws are held in Paris, France. The minimum prize starts at €17 million and rolls over until it is won. This jackpot has paid out a whopping €190 million (the highest amount ever won) on four occasions.
This is an American state-wide lottery whose draws are held twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Powerball is one of the oldest lotteries and is known for having produced the biggest jackpot recorded in history. That happened in 2016 when the unheard-of $1.586 billion was paid to winners. The starting amount of this jackpot is set at $20 million.
Like Powerball, Mega Millions is an American cross-state game founded about two decades ago. With an absurd $1.537 billion won with a single ticket on this jackpot game, Powerball is undoubtedly one of the richest lotteries out there.
While they may not pay out as high as the jackpot games, regular games are loved across the Malaysian gambling population. Here are some of them:
- Magnum 4D: To play Magnum 4D, players simply need to pick a four-digit number randomly. The player wins if one or more digit(s) of the number match with the ones drawn.
- Star Toto 6/50: Playing this game involves picking 6 numbers from a range of 1 to 50. Each bet costs RM1 (the equivalent of around 0.5 USD), meaning players don't need deep pockets to participate in this game.
- Toto 5D: Here, players choose a five-digit number that must match the numbers drawn by the operator in order to win. Striking the first prize earns a player about USD 3,500 per bet.
