The Thursday Superlotto jackpot started at Rs. 2 crore and rolled over every time it was not won, leading to big payouts. The game even set a record for the biggest jackpot ever won on a Playwin lottery, when a resident of Kolkata won Rs. 17 crore in 2006.
How Thursday Super Lotto Was Played
To play Thursday Super Lotto, players needed to select six numbers from a range of 1 to 49. The jackpot was won by anyone who matched all six numbers drawn, but prizes could also be won for matching as few as three numbers. In the event that more than one player won the jackpot, the top prize would be shared equally between the top prize winners. In draws where there was no jackpot winner, the amount would roll over to the next draw.
The prize tiers, winning combinations and odds of winning a prize were as follows:
|6||1 in 13,983,816||2 Crores|
|5||1 in 54,201||50,000|
|4||1 in 1,032||500|
|3||1 in 57||50|
|Overall odds of winning any prize: 1 in 54|
Draws were held every Thursday night between 10:00pm and 10:30pm and were shown on television channel Zee Zing.

Thursday Super Lotto was discontinued as part of a wider shakeup of Playwin’s games – the last draw took place on 14th March 2019. Extra draw days were added for Playwin’s Jaldi 5 and Jaldi Double at the same time. In October 2019, six months after Thursday Super Lotto ended, Playwin closed its doors for good and all of its games came to an end.
