The jackpot in Bulgaria's State lottery "Toto" is expected to reach Sunday the amount of BGN 5 M, which will be among the record-high ones.

The Bulgarian Standard daily reports long lines in front of the Toto offices since dawn, and people betting several times each for the second draw in the 6/49 game. There is serious interest in the draw in Bulgarian beach resorts as well.

The draw will be aired live by the Bulgarian National Television, BNT1, at 20:45 pm Sunday.

According to mathematicians, if the percentage of the total number of combinations reaches 15, there would be a nearly certain winner. The percentage was just 10 last Sunday.

If no one wins now, the jackpot for next week will be BGN 5.3 M, the fourth record-high amount in the history of the State lottery.

The Toto offices will be working with extended hours over the huge interest.

The highest amount so far is BGN 7 M, which was registered in February 2011.
