To end the year on a high note, FDJ is treating us to a New Year’s Super Loto. There are three big advantages to playing: an exceptional jackpot, boosted winnings for the winners of intermediate ranks and 50 checks of 20,000 euros are distributed.
This year, FDJ sees things big for the New Year. The French organization is organizing a New Year’s Super Lotto which has a series of advantages. The jackpot is boosted to 13 million euros, the winners of intermediate ranks benefit from a multiplying coefficient (between 1.5 and 2.5x) and there are 50 participants who will leave with 20,000 euros.
In short, if you want to play and win this New Year’s Loto draw, you are quite right. As always, you have until 8:15 p.m. on Friday, December 31, 2021 to validate a grid. This can be done online with just a few clicks. If you are too lazy to go out to validate a grid, this is the best solution.
With all the conditions that are applied on this New Year’s Super Lotto, here you have one of the best lotto of the year. Obviously, the enthusiasm of the French public will be very strong – but the probability of finding the right combination remains the same. To get 2022 off to a good start, everyone would be happy to benefit from an exceptional bonus awarded by FDJ.
How do I play the New Year’s Super Lotto draw?
The New Year’s Super Lotto works just like any lottery, except that it comes with a lot more benefits. You must always tick (at least) 5 numbers and a lucky number. If you find the right combination, you will be able to walk away with the jackpot. If several winners find it, it will be necessary to share the 13 million euros announced.
If you want to play New Year’s Loto, you will either have to go to the FDJ site or go to a tobacconist’s store. The first solution is the simpler, faster and more efficient. In a few clicks, you will be able to access the super draw (3 euros per grid) on the site or the mobile application. This will also allow you to know the result in preview and know the level of your earnings.
Rather than going to a tobacconist in the FDJ network, playing New Year’s Loto on the site only brings advantages. Different options are also available (Fast Flash, Multiple Flash… and even exclusively MultiChances which is not available at tobacconists). And if you want to play other games afterwards, the EuroMillions or Illiko ranges are also present.
If you are familiar with the lottery draws, you know that each of them is independent. There is therefore no point in knowing the latest results to fill your New Year’s Super Lotto grid. We can however remind you of the numbers that fell during this same draw at the end of last year: 6-8-12-21-47 and the lucky number: 3.
If the lottery jackpot is smaller than that of EuroMillions, appearances are deceptive. Indeed, the probability of winning the New Year’s Super Loto is much higher. So you have every interest in taking advantage of this, especially since the jackpot is among the highest ever for this type of draw. Normally, FDJ grants between 2 and 4 million euros for the winner of the classic lotto.
Thanks to the New Year’s Super Loto, you will have intermediate ranks which will be boosted. For example, you will already be able to find your initial bet if you just find the lucky number (3 euros of gain). If you have for example just 3 numbers of vouchers, you will receive 50 euros. If you have the 5 correct numbers but the lucky number is wrong, you will receive a bonus of around 150,000 euros.
The specifics of this draw
This year, FDJ has decided to give maximum opportunities to all French people. First of all, you have a jackpot which is significantly higher than a classic lotto draw (from 2 million euros). So here you can walk away with 13 million euros for this New Year’s Super Loto. The probability of winning is always the same, i.e. 1 in 19 million. For comparison, EuroMillion gives you one chance in 139 million.
In addition to the amount of the jackpot which is boosted, this is a “Super” Loto. This is the fourth time in the year 2021 that it has taken place and it gives a real bonus to all the winners of the intermediate ranks. The amount that will be offered to them is boosted between 1.5 and 2.5x compared to the usual amount. For example, if you have just 4 good numbers (compared to 5 + 1 numbers if you find the jackpot), you will get around 1000 euros instead of 400.
Finally, the last advantage lies in the 50 codes that will be drawn and which will allow as many people to leave with a check for 20,000 euros. For each grid that will be validated for this New Year’s Super Loto, you will have one entry in this side draw. FDJ will draw 50 people who will leave with such a check, whatever the result of their grid. This is therefore 1 million euros guaranteed in addition.
We remind you that you can play the New Year’s Loto until December 31 at 8:15 p.m. On the FDJ site or on the mobile application, it will only take you a few minutes to open an account and place your bet. This is the easiest way to take part in this exceptional 2021 draw. The draw will be announced around 8:50 pm.
