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.
