French lotto tickets can be purchased online, as well as in-person at authorized retailers. As well as the jackpot, there are a further eight tiers of prizes available. The prize values will fluctuate each time according to the number of tickets that have been sold. The player chooses six numbers in total – five main numbers and a bonus ball.
There are eight tiers of prizes and the odds of winning the jackpot are around 19 million to 1 – lower than most other jackpots. Players can go to the place they purchased the ticket from for lower value prizes. Online retailers will pay out automatically to accounts, although larger prizes may take time to clear to the online account.
The player can then transfer the money to their bank account. Prizes won on tickets purchased in-store can be claimed in-store up to a certain value. The larger prizes may have to be claimed directly from the lottery operator.
