The number of monthly winners varies as fiscal receipts continue to be drawn until the monthly prize fund of around €59,000 is reached.
Each draw, for which the public is invited, is held at the Public Lotto Stores, at Wied il-Kbir in Qormi, and the identity card number of the winners published in newspapers and on the ministry’s website.
Last year, the ministry had said it saw no need to reform the lottery.
A spokesman had insisted there were enough checks and balances to ensure a fair and transparent process, saying the draw was held under the supervision of a board composed of a notary from the Office of the Notary to Government and representatives of the finance ministry, the Commissioner for Revenue and the public.
The latter official is appointed by the finance minister while a representative of the National Audit Office is also present as an observer.
Between 2002 and 2003, 11 people were charged with tampering with the draw.
During court proceedings, it emerged that the ‘winning’ receipt would be placed into a groove in the urn, from where it would be picked up during the draw.
Following this scandal the lottery was revamped and new procedures put in place to minimise the risk of abuse.
In 2018, the NAO had flagged a list of issues, including the size of the urn, which it deemed too small for the fiscal receipts to be adequately shuffled. The ministry had pledged to address the matter.
