Play PunJab Lotto Review
The Punjab State Lottery was first launched back in 1968 when the local government founded the Directorate of Punjab State Lotteries.
Up until the end of 2017, the Punjab State Lottery had three types of draws: the weekly, monthly, and bumper draws. The popular weekly draws were held on Wednesdays until they were suspended in early 2018 by the government. The monthly draws were held on the last Friday of each month, and the last known draw was in early 2019. Only the bumper draws have survived, and they are held throughout the year on special holidays such as New Year (Lohri), Holi Festival, Baisakhi, Rakhi, and Diwali.
The bumper draw has a ticket that consists of six numbers. Back in the days when they were held, the weekly and monthly draws had lottery tickets that had five and six numbers respectively.
Note: All lottery winnings in India are taxed at a flat rate of 30%.
The Punjab State Lottery is printed using a government press, and can only be purchased from government-authorised retailers, such as post offices, bus stops, train stations, and local markets.
Unfortunately, for the Punjab State Lottery, tickets are not available online. Punters need to buy the printed ticket from an authorised agent in Punjab. Online lottery websites that claim to sell the Punjab State Lottery are most likely scammers.
