People have been waiting for the prize to be drawn for 10 months and the players are becoming impatient, since the last grand prize was drawn in January 2018, when the amount of 300.000 euros went to a lucky winner in Belgrade.

- The hype is real, we even have the players from abroad. As we found out, the significant number of people is trying out their lucky combinations over the friends from Serbia - they explain.

Due to the record amount, even the people who don't play it are playing now, so up to 746.560 combinations were submitted.

The chance to win the grand prize is 0.0000065 percent. The greatest amount of lucky winners was drawn in 2007 when the drum chose 13 main winners. On the other hand, the least winners were chosen in 2012, when there were only 3 winners.

- The significance of the state lottery is thus bigger since a large portion of the taxes for the games is going to the state budget and 19% of it is used to finance sport and youth, Red Cross of Serbia and 5% goes to treatment of rare diseases - they stated from the State lottery.
