Sikkim State Lottery
Every lottery in Sikkim has been closed since 2020. The information on this page is provided as information for previous draws and will be updated should the Sikkim lottery start running draws again. A tender was issued in May 2023 inviting companies to apply for a license to run the Sikkim State Lottery, but these draws have not begun yet. Any organisation saying they are running Sikkim lotteries is a lie and should be reported immediately. You can do so by contacting us, using the links at the bottom of the page.
The Sikkim State Lottery offers the Dear Labhlaxmi draw, which takes place daily at 6:00pm, and has held various Bumper Lotteries to celebrate major calendar events and religious festivals.
You cannot play the Sikkim Lottery online, but tickets can be bought from lottery agents across the state. Just tell the agent exactly which draw you wish to enter and how many tickets you want, and they will tell you the total cost.
