The Supreme Toto 6/58 is another lottery game that shares the same concept as the Star Toto 6/50 & Power Toto 6/55.

The Supreme Toto 6/58 was launched on the 18th of March 2010, with a variety of prizes that accompanied the launch. Before the lotto could be run, the company had to gain approval from the authorities and upon its approval, the announcement of the 6/50 was made via press release on the 11th of March 2010.
