If the grand ticket is sold, there is a winner for that particular draw. If the grand ticket is not sold, there is a jackpot that is transferred to the next draw.
The sales network asks from Hellenic Lotteries particular numbers of tickets to promote them to the final players. Hellenic Lotteries prints and distributes the tickets in accordance with the demand of the sales network. Currently, from the 800,000 tickets participating in the draw, 400,000 tickets are printed and distributed to the sales network. Tickets that traditionally the retail network of Hellenic Lotteries does not buy due to the fact that there is no demand for them by the players (namely, tickets beginning with 0 or 00, or including zeros or consecutive identical numbers etc.) are included in the tickets that are not printed.
This quantity may be differentiated depending on the demand of Laiko (Popular) Lottery.
If requested, there is the possibility for any unprinted number to be printed.
