Ötöslottó was launched in 1957 as a way to help boost the economy and raise funds for good causes after the revolution of 1956. A monthly prize draw used to run alongside the lottery, in which players sometimes had the chance to win houses or cars.
The jackpot rolls over when it is not won, although it can only grow for a year at the most before it must be won. The biggest Ötöslottó jackpot in history was worth 6.431 billion HUF and was won by a single player on 28th March 2020.
