Departmental Policies

Current policy of the Government is to organize, conduct and promote State Lotteries fulfilling the provisions of the Lotteries (Regulation) Act, 1998 and the West Bengal State Lottery Rules, 1968. At present four Weekly Draws viz., Bangabhumi Super Draw, Bangasree Super Draw, Bangalakshmi Draw (twice in a month) are organized in a month. Apart from these, six bumper draws in festivals viz., New Year Bumper, Nababarsha (Bengali New Year) Bumper, Holi Bumper, Rathayatra Bumper, Puja Bumper and Diwali Bumper are conducted. The price (MRP) of the Bi- Weekly draw of Lottery ticket is Rs.2/- for Bangalakshmi draw, Rs.5/- for Bangabhumi Super draw and Rs.10/- for Bangasree Super draw. The price of each ticket of Bumper Draws is usually Rs.20/-. The basic policy of the Govt. is to assure fixed prizes, which are guaranteed by declaring prizes on sold tickets only, a feature that has made West Bengal State Lottery more transparent, credible over other lotteries.
