Nanum Lotto is the national lottery of South Korea. It's a popular lottery service known for its official lottery games, including Lotto 6/45, which is one of the most played lottery games in the country. Nanum Lotto was established to operate lottery games and contribute to social causes through its revenue.
In the Lotto 6/45 game, players choose six numbers from a pool of 1 to 45. The draw for winning numbers occurs twice a week.

There are also prizes for matching fewer numbers, with various prize tiers providing players with different winning amounts.
A significant portion of the revenue generated by Nanum Lotto is allocated to various public and social welfare programs. This includes funding for cultural initiatives, sports development, and various other community projects. By participating in Nanum Lotto games, players not only get the chance to win prizes but also contribute to these social causes, making it a popular choice among South Koreans who enjoy lottery games.
History of Nanum Lotto
Nanum Lotto was established just two decades ago in response to public demand for a reliable and fair lottery. The company that provided the lottery services was owned and managed by Nanum Lotto Inc. In 2007, Nanum Lotto Inc. became the sole service provider for online lotteries and betting through an official contract with the Korea Lottery Commission.
In 2013, the Ministry of Economics and Finance allowed the organization to take over all forms of lotteries in the country, making their lottery the only legal one available at that time.
In 2009, the organization was awarded a level 1 certificate from the World Lottery Association Responsible Gaming Framework, followed by a level 2 certificate in 2013. These credentials, along with others that the lottery provider earned over the years, helped Nanum Lotto establish itself as a trustworthy and reputable organization.
Legal Framework of Nanum Lotto
Nanum Lotto operates under the jurisdiction of the Korea Lottery Commission and the Ministry of Economy and Finance, ensuring fair play, transparency, and responsible gaming. The lottery adheres to laws and regulations promoting responsible gaming, proper allocation of lottery revenues, and transparency in operations, contributing to societal well-being.
