Swiss Lotto Odds of Winning
There are 8 ways to win a prize by playing the Swiss Lotto. Obviously, the most attractive prize tier is the jackpot one.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 31,474,716. The minimum guaranteed jackpot is 1.5 million CHF. If there’s no winner, the amount will roll over towards the next drawing. This is the main reason why Swiss Lotto has produced some pretty spectacular jackpots over the years.
Swiss Lotto offers some favorable odds, especially when compared to mega lotteries. And, like I said before, if compared with lotteries of a similar scope, Swiss Lotto’s still impresses for the most part. Check out the quick breakdown below:

What Happens if You Win?
All Swiss Lotto prizes are paid out in lump sum form and, for prizes below CHF1,000,000, are tax-free. For prizes that go beyond this threshold, there is a 35% income tax deduction. Of course, if you live in another country, your local tax laws, if any, will apply as well—which means you might be facing twice the deductions.
Smaller prizes (CHF1,000 & below) can be claimed at several outlets throughout Switzerland, while larger winnings are claimed through a different process (with your winning deposited to your bank of choice). Unlike other lotteries that give a hundred or so days to claim prizes, Swiss Lotto only gives players a total of 26 weeks.
