Vietlott has announced the Jackpot 1 of Power 6/55 winner who got a whopping VND303.89 billion, or over $13 million, in a draw on May 5. Many people were yearning for this huge jackpot.

Jackpot 1 of Vietlott Power 6/55 is viewed as the largest prize in Vietnam’s lottery history. The ticket held by the winner, a resident in Hanoi, matched the number 16-32-33-37-40-48.

Since its debut in August 2017, no player has ever won Jackpot 1, resulting in an accumulation of the prize. It had exceeded VND300 billion since end-January.

According to its special rules, all winning prizes worth over VND300 billion will be transferred to Jackpot 2 if there is a Jackpot 2 winner, but Jackpot 1.

The probability to win Jackpot 1 is far lower than Mega 6/45 as the ratio of the former is 1/28.8 million tickets and the latter 1/8 million tickets. Many lottery buyers could not resist the appeal of the prize, so they did not hesitate to spend hundreds of millions of dong buying tickets.

Along with Jackpot 1 in a draw on May 5, six ticket holders won first prizes of VND40 million each, 878 second prizes of VND500,000 each and 18,115 third prizes of VND50,000 each.
