How do you win the Lotto?

A lot ticket can be bought in shop or online. You have to choose six numbers and bonus number out of a 1-45 range. You can call yourself a Jackpot winner if these numbers match. Great news, because the minimum Jackpot is 1 million euros! Sometimes no one is lucky enough to win the Jackpot. In that case the money rises each draw. 2, 3 or 4 million euros is no exception! It could also go the other way. Sometimes more people win the Jackpot on the same day. In that case the money is divided among the lucky winners.

Overview: prize divisions
The Lotto has more prizes than the Jackpot alone. It has multiple prize divisions, with different winning chances. You win a lot of money in the highest categories. The amount of money you can win is variable. It depends on several factors, including the number of people that have bought a ticket.

Each person participates with more numbers and has a chance to win in several divisions. Good luck!

Do I have to pay tax on my winnings?

In Belgium, winnings from purchases with the National Lottery are tax-free. So you do not pay tax on your winnings.

If the winning amount is €10,000 or more, you will automatically receive a win certificate from the National Lottery confirming that the money was won through a National Lottery game.

However, you may have to pay tax for using your winnings. For example, if you deposit your winnings in a savings account, you will not be taxed on the amount won, but you will be taxed on the bank interest accrued on that amount.
