Lotaria


Explanation:
Never "loteria". But it is also "rifa", "totoloto", etc. Anyway, for a normal translation, just use "Lotaria".

Totoloto, lotaria, loteria


Explanation:
A palavra em inglês "lottery", no Reino Unido, neste momento, é aplicada geralmente para o que em Portugal se chama o "totoloto". No entanto, também pode ser traduzida por "lotaria", se não se referir específicamente ao concurso tipo loto ou bingo à escala nacional. Em portugês do Brasil, diz-se loteria. Se for desportiva, para Portugal será totobola e no Brasil, loteria esportiva.
