Lotto America Info

Everything old is new again!  After 25 years, Lotto America® is making a comeback, but this is not the Lotto America® your parents played.  This is a new game designed for a new generation.  The one thing that time hasn't changed...the price to play.  We turned back the clock to 1988 so a new generation of players can purchase tickets, affordably priced, at $1 per play.  Starting November 12th, let's throw back to a newly-enhanced version of the original Lottery game that paved the way for Powerball® and BIG, rolling jackpots.

• Lotto America sales start:  Sunday, November 12, 2017

• First Lotto America drawing:  Wednesday, November 15, 2017

• Because no one won the final Hot Lotto jackpot, the first Lotto America jackpot will be $15 million

•New game matrix:  5/52 + 1/10

•Normally, the grand prize starts at $2 million; rolling jackpot

•Eight set cash prize levels

•$1 per play, $2 with Lotto America All Star Bonus® (multiplier option)

•Drawings: Wednesday and Saturday nights after 11pm EST in Tallahasse, Florida.  Drawings will not be televised.  The Lotto America® game will feature two draw machines.  The first machine will contain 52 balls; the second machine will contain 10 balls. Five balls will be drawn from the first machine, and one ball (know as the Lotto America Star Ball®), will be drawn from the second machine.

•Prizes are subject to Federal and State tax withholdings.

Daily 3 Players Win Big with 2-2-2

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The West Virginia Lottery's Daily 3 players won big on Wednesday (Nov. 29, 2017) when the numbers 2-2-2 were drawn. The triple twos led to a total of 1,326 tickets sharing a hefty prize pay out of $331,500 for the night.

"Our Daily 3 players won big last night and we could not be happier for them," said West Virginia Lottery Public Relations and Drawing Manager Randy Burnside. "The 2-2-2 has been a lucky combination over the years and is among the most popular combinations played each week. That prize payout is significant."

This is the game's highest prize pay out since the numbers 2-2-2 were last drawn back on April 4 of 2016 and a total prize liability of $360,750 was shared by 1,443 tickets. That amount remains the largest prize pay out for the game that was introduced in March of 1987.

Daily 3 tickets cost only $1 and can be purchased at West Virginia Lottery retail locations up until 6:49 p.m. each draw day. Drawings are conducted Monday through Saturday at 6:59 p.m. and televised statewide. The top prize for matching all three numbers in exact order is $500.
