Bhutan Lottery

The Bhutan State Lottery offers a variety of exciting games that you can play for the chance to win great prizes. As an independent country, Bhutan has its own official lottery that is state-owned under the Ministry of Finance. Prime Minister Lyonchen Tshering Tobgay launched the first domestic monthly lottery in 2016 and more schemes have followed to help the lottery generate revenue. The Bhutan Lottery exists to help wider society, benefiting various schemes such as health, education and sports. It is also exploring the possibility of expansion beyond its own borders, specifically in India.

There are two main lotteries in Bhutan- the Phuensum Weekly Lottery that is drawn once a week on Thursdays, and the Phuensum Lotto 5/36 that takes place twice a week on Monday and Thursday. In addition to these two lotteries are the bumper draws that take place around special events. In Butan the Monsoon Bumper and Losar Bumper are the only special draws that currently take place, offering massively inflated top prizes.

Phuensum Lotteries

As mentioned previously, the two main lotteries share a similar name in Phuensum Weekly Lottery and Phuensum Lotto 5/36. The Weekly lottery takes place on Thursdays at 3:00pm and follows the more traditional style of lottery seen in India where codes are selected in different tiers and players win prizes for matching those numbers, or the ends of them for the bottom two prize tiers, to the ones on their ticket. Tickets cost Nu. 50 and are numbered from 10000 to 59999, with the table below showing all the prize tiers:

Phuensum Weekly Lottery Prizes
Prize Rank Number of Prizes Prize Amount (Nu) Winners and Method
1st 1 500,000 1x on All five digits
2nd 5 20,000 5x on All five digits
3rd 5 10,000 5x on All five digits
4th 200 500 40x on Four digits
5th 3000 200 60x on Three digits

The 5/36 Lotto follows an approach used more commonly in Western countries where players choose five numbers from 1 – 36, and win prizes for matching as many numbers as possible. Each draw has a jackpot that is won by matching the five numbers drawn, but if no player does so successfully then the jackpot rollsover and increases to the next draw. There is also a Bonus Ball selected which helps players win in more prize tiers if it matches one of the five numbers they picked. All the prizes can be seen in the table below:

Phuensum Lotto 5/36 Prizes
Prize Rank Balls Matched Prize Amount (Nu)
1st 5 Jackpot- Starting at 1,000,000
2nd 4 + Bonus 100,000
3rd 4 10,000
4th 3 + Bonus 2,000
5th 3 90
6th 2 + Bonus 90
7th 2 30
8th 1 + Bonus 30

Bumper Lotteries

Bhutan currently holds two bumper draws a year- the Monsoon Bumper and the Losar Bumper. The Monsoon Bumper is held at the start of the Monsoon season whilst the Losar Bumper takes place during the Losar Festival celebrating the Tibetan New Year. Both of these draws have massively higher prizes than the normal weekly draw, giving players a better chance of winning an even larger sum of money than they would on a normal weekly lottery. Tickets do cost more at Nu. 300 per ticket but, as shown in the table below, the prizes are well worth the extra ticket cost:

Bhutan Monsoon and Losar Bumper Lottery Prizes
Prize Rank Number of Prizes Prize Amount (Nu) Winners and Method
1st 1 30,00,000 1x on All five digits
2nd 1 10,00,000 1x on All five digits
