Awesome Winnings for Ambitious Travelers: MarocLoto

Beat the rainy spring blues by playing MarocLoto!

April showers bring May….lottery winnings?

This could be the case if you choose to visit lovely, sunny Morocco to beat the rainy spring blues. Whether you’re a resident of the country or just passing through, you won’t want to miss out on one of the country’s hidden gems: their lottery.

Established in 1971 as La Loterie Nationale in French, the lottery’s primary purpose was to regulate this type of gambling in the country and make sure that prizes were reaching the right people, in the right amounts.

It’s come a long way since the seventies: now, the company offers a variety of games, including Quarto, Joker, Lotto, Trio, and Keno. When players participate, they’re not only having a good time—they’re supporting charitable causes and country initiatives in art, culture, education, and sports.

Convinced yet? Grab your sunglasses and book your stay!

One of the most popular games you can play is MarocLoto. Because it’s a little different from other lotteries, we thought we’d give you the rundown before your trip.

What is MarocLoto, Anyway?

MarocLoto, at its heart, is a number game that follows the 6/49 format. This makes it more simple to play than, for example, the EuroLottery (5/50+2/12 matrix), and comes with the advantage that you can win a prize in five ways—and take home a prize twice a week.

On Saturdays and Wednesdays, players choose six main numbers from a total list of 49. Then, the machine selects a bonus number. The jackpot is the top prize, and in order to snatch it, you’ll have to be quite lucky—you have to match all six numbers that are drawn.

The prize pool is dependent on the number of people who’ve chosen to take part in the Loto (and, thus, have paid for a ticket), as well as the number of players who win (and split the pot).

One of the most important features of the MarocLoto, and one we have to mention, is that if you’re a resident of the country youre not subjected to any taxes on your winnings. That’s a WOAH from us!

Naturally, if you’re a resident of another country and you win in the MarocLoto, you’re going to have to pay your country’s income taxes and associated fees with taking cash out of the country. As the prize is paid as a lump sum, this can get a little pricey depending on your home country’s gambling regulations.

I’ve Made it to Morocco—How do I Play?

It’s easy as pie—easier, in fact, as pie crust can be relatively complicated.

The first thing you have to do is to find a reliable retailer. The National Lottery has a list of reputable places from where you can buy your tickets and choose your numbers. This used to be the only option you had if you wanted to play, but they’ve moved into the modern age: you can now also play online by using a lottery agent to buy a ticket on your behalf.

You can even subscribe to the MarocLoto draws, meaning that you’ll be automatically entered in subsequent draws without any effort on your part.

Once you’ve chosen your six numbers, the bonus number (also called the Joker) is generated. This is part of the draw and works in the same way as the other other numbers, but is used for determining the prizes for which you’re eligible if you end up with a huge lottery win.

Check and check again: you need to be sure that your ticket has the following details:

  • The MarocLoto name
  • The numbers you’ve chosen
  • The bonus number
  • A serial number

Making sure that your ticket has all of these ensures that you’re holding a legitimate bid. You’ll also need this to claim your prize.

While the lottery’s (naturally) a game of chance, there are a couple of strategies to boost your chances as the pros do.

How do I Increase my Chances of Success?

The first thing to do is to look at the frequency chart for past draws and then choose your numbers based on that. Thanks to our brave new world, everything’s available online—you can look up the past winning combinations right on your home computer.

Frequency charts will indicate if any numbers are drawn more frequently than others, and which are more rarely called. Naturally, if you see any patterns there, you’re going to want to choose the most frequently chosen numbers.

You can also use the Delta Lotto method, a way of lottery betting based on a statistical study of numbers that are next to each other. You’re going to use that same information about most frequently drawn numbers again.

The method involves choosing a set of "delta numbers," which are numbers that are one less or one more than each of the winning numbers in the previous drawing. The deltas are then used to help choose the player's numbers for the next drawing.

First, you look up the winning numbers from the previous drawing, before calculating the differences between each winning number and the next. These are the delta numbers.

Use these delta numbers to create a set of numbers to play in the next drawing. An easy way to go is to add each delta to the corresponding number in a personal set of lucky numbers, creating a new set of numbers to play.

For example, if the winning numbers in the previous drawing were 4, 9, 14, 23, and 28, the delta numbers would be 5, 5, 9, 5, and 5, respectively. You could add each delta to a set of personal lucky numbers, such as 1, 10, 15, 20, and 25, to create a new set of numbers to play in the next drawing: 6, 15, 24, 28, and 30.

Remember: no lottery is guaranteed! It’s just another way to relax and have a great time while you explore a beautiful place. Happy playing!
