TN: Lotto Plus On Sale
NC: Pick 3 Midday Starts
Tickets on sale for new Lotto Plus game
"Lotto Plus" tickets on sale; Lotto 5 gets a new name and another way to win
"Lotto Plus" is the newest game from the Tennessee Lottery, bringing the state its own lotto game with jackpots starting at $1 million. The drawing-style game launches Sunday, March 9, with the first drawing set to be held on Tuesday, March 11.
"Tennessee players have been asking for their own lotto game, and we're excited to introduce Lotto Plus as another way to create fun and excitement for them," said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Lottery. "By introducing new ways to play and win, we can continue the momentum that has raised more than $1 billion for the education programs we fund."
In addition to the introduction of Lotto Plus, the Lottery has renamed Lotto 5 and added another prize level. Lotto 5, now "Pick 5," will allow players to win by matching 2 of 5 numbers in addition to the current prizes for matching 3, 4 and 5 numbers.
How to play Lotto Plus
Playing Lotto Plus is simple: Players select any six numbers from 1 to 44, or choose Quick Pick to let a computer randomly pick any or all of the numbers. Each play is $1. If 3, 4, 5, or 6 of those numbers are drawn in any order, the player wins. If no ticket matches all six numbers drawn, the jackpot increases a minimum of $100,000 for the next drawing. As with Powerball and Pick 5, if more than one ticket matches all of the numbers drawn, the jackpot will be split among the ticket holders.
Lotto Plus also has a Plus Feature, which will multiply any non-jackpot winnings by 2 to 5 times for an extra dollar per play. Drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 10 p.m. CT/11 p.m. ET, then broadcast on Lottery partner stations.
Lotto Plus joins the Tennessee Lottery's other drawing-style games including Powerball, Cash 3, Cash 4, Pick 5 (formerly Lotto 5) and Hot Trax Champions.
