If a public holiday falls on a Saturday, MALTCO LOTTERIES Limited may decide to hold the draw on the preceding Friday. If the preceding Friday is also a public holiday, the draw may take place the following Monday.


To win, all you have to do is to match your selected numbers with the drawn numbers. The more numbers you play, the more you increase your winning probabilities.

Following is a table showing the corresponding winning amounts for each Game Type:

Game Type Winning amount Odds
Prima 60 times the stake 1:90
Ambo 215 times the stake 1:400
Terno 3500 times the stake 1:11,748

MALTCO LOTTERIES reserves the right to apply a capping mechanism in extraordinary circumstances, when the winnings are more than 130% of sales based on risk management criteria. (Even in such cases however the company may decide not to apply the capping mechanism).

In the event that the Quaterno Plus Category I Prize is not won during a particular draw, then this prize shall be increased (together with its associated capping) by a minimum increment of €10,000 (or as may be advised by MALTCO LOTTERIES from time to time) each week until it is won.

The Quaterno Category Plus I Prize will revert to the minimum amount of €250,000, for the draw immediately following that in which it has been won and will thereafter increase by the minimum increment of €10,000 (or as may be advised by MALTCO LOTTERIES from time to time) per week until it is won.

If in any particular draw, there is more than one winning column in Category I in the Quaterno Plus game, then the top prize won on the Quaterno Plus in that same draw, will be split according to the number of winning columns.

If for example, in a particular draw where the Category I prize is €250,000, and Player A plays a Quaterno Plus fully expanded ticket of 7 numbers and matches 6 numbers, and Player B plays a Quaterno Plus ticket with 5 numbers and matches all 5 numbers, then both of them are winners of the top category prize in the Quaterno Plus game. Player A will win €214,285.71, whilst Player B will win €35,714.28.

Furthermore, in the event that winnings in Category II and Category III in any one draw exceed seventy percent (70%) of the sales of the Quaterno Plus Game for that particular draw, MALTCO LOTTERIES may exercise at its discretion the option to limit such winnings to not less than seventy percent (70%) of the sales of the Quaterno Plus Game for that draw.

Notwithstanding, MALTCO LOTTERIES Limited reserves the right to choose to pay more than all the limitations indicated above.

Prizes over €5,000.00 are payable during office hours at the MALTCO LOTTERIES Limited’s Head Office against presentation of an I.D. Card.
