How to Play?
Depending on the lines you wish to bet, you will be given a set of panels that have numbers between 1 and 42. There will also be another section in which you will be asked to select numbers from 1-6. From every panel, you have to select six numbers as well as one number from the other section. This section is for the bonus ball.

Yes, it is a tough task, but it has definitely been done.
This Swiss lottery game was developed for the German speaking cantons of Ticino and Switzerland. Cantons in Switzerland are similar to the states in the US. Each canton is a member of the Swiss Confederation. The purpose of this lottery game is to raise funds for helping further sports in the different cantons, which makes it a very charitable lottery. It uses the Toto Society for contributing to sports in over 20 cantons.
Moving onto the actual payouts, the jackpots that are paid out in this lottery game can go as high as 1.5 million Swiss Francs. If they are not claimed, they are simply rolled over to the next draw. As the game is played twice a week, this means that you can expect the lottery to have massive jackpots. There are seven other prizes also given out after the jackpot. Even if you land six numbers, but don’t get the bonus ball, you can still expect to take home a substantial amount. You can win a prize even if you match at least three balls. Your total can go higher if you add the bonus ball to the three matched numbers, which makes participating in this Switzerland lotto worth it.
