The information contained in this article does not dispense with consulting the official results of the Santa Casa da Misericórdia in Lisbon.
The Popular Lottery draws are held in the drawing room of the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, on Thursdays, at 12:30 pm.
The lottery was instituted by royal decree of Queen D. Maria I, on November 18, 1783, authorizing the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa to operate an annual lottery, under the tutelage and supervision of the Royal Treasury, with the proceeds shared by the Royal Hospital, Casa dos Expostos and the Royal Academy of Sciences.
The 1st extraction took place on September 1, 1784 and took about 34 days, with a 1st prize of 12,000$000 réis.
The Lottery was suspended in 1798, with the advent of the royal lotteries, leaving the Misericórdia de Lisboa deprived of an important source of income and its pious function compromised. It would, however, be restored in 1804 but again interrupted until 1811, the time of the French invasions.
In 1892, the operation of the game was assigned to a private company, and it was only in 1893 that the Lottery was definitively operated, under a monopoly regime, by Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa.
On November 24, 1955, through Decree-Law 40 397, the Lottery formally and fully assumed the name of National Lottery, a designation that it maintains to this day and which encompasses the Classic and Popular Lottery.
On March 10, 1987, the Popular Lottery was launched, with more affordable prices for players. This launch was related to the need to combat illegal gambling, namely «raffles» that proliferated in various media, channeling this demand towards the legal offer of the State’s social games, as well as to win over an audience with less purchasing power.
The Classic and Popular Lotteries fall into the category of lotteries where each draw corresponds to the issue of numbered tickets, for participation in draws of numbers called extractions. The previously defined prize plan is printed on the back of the ticket, determining the categories, quantities and values of the prizes to be awarded in view of the total issue of tickets.
The fractions and series of tickets (composed of 5 fractions) of the Classic Lottery are associated with different draws related to special times, celebrations or other festive events, depending on the fraction price of the type of draw: Ordinary: €5 | Specials: 10€ | Extraordinary: 15€. The value of the prize in the fraction corresponds to 1/5 of the value assigned to the ticket.
The first prize can reach the value of 12 million and five hundred thousand euros, as is the case of the 1st prize in the emblematic Christmas Lottery. And the Classic Lottery is the State’s social game with the highest probability of hitting the number contemplated with the 1st prize. On average, one out of every three fractions is awarded.
With 1st Prize values ranging between 75 and 150 thousand euros, the prices of the Popular Lottery fraction also vary according to the type of draws: Ordinary: 2€ | Specials: 3€ | Extraordinary: 5€. It is the product of the Jogos Santa Casa portfolio with the second highest probability of matching the number awarded the 1st Prize.
