Greeks can also play lotteries from all around the globe with different jackpots and draw games from sites who are properly licensed to safeguard players. In fact, the big lottos from Europe and USA are actually more popular than the national lotteries because of the huge size of the jackpots which can be even higher if there is a rollover.
As with all online betting, it's essential to choose safe and secure sites so that your money and personal details are protected. Players can play online from a laptop or mobile device, making playing online lottery very simple in Greece.
The first lotteries to be held in Greece were not related to money but were used as a way of selecting government officials. They were held from the sixth century BC. The first lotteries held to generate funds was the Greek State Lottery, owned by the Greek government, in 1862.
The next lottery to emerge was the Ethniko (meaning national) lottery in 1937 and is still played today. The Laiko (meaning popular) Lottery began in 1941, having one draw a week and tickets now costing 2 Euros.
