The Georgia Lottery tonight is kicking off the first drawing of its latest Georgia-only lotto game: Jumbo Bucks Lotto with Cash Match.

The new game combines a classic lotto draw game with an instant-win component, and is the first time the game concept has been offered in the state of Georgia.

Jumbo Bucks Lotto with Cash Match offers jackpots starting at $1 million. The jackpot will continue to grow until there is a jackpot winner.

Additionally, players can select Cash Match for a chance to win up to $500 instantly.

Jumbo Bucks Lotto with Ca$h Match went on sale at Georgia Lottery retailers statewide Sunday.

Drawings are held at 11 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays, with the first drawing being conducted tonight — Feb. 23, 2015.

Tickets are $1 per play. The Cash Match option costs an additional $1 per play.

Players must pick six numbers from 1 to 47, and can win the jackpot prize by matching the six numbers drawn.  The game offers three additional lotto prizes from $5 to $500.

Overall odds of winning any lotto prize are approximately 1 in 47.56. Odds of winning the jackpot prize are approximately 1 in 10.7 million.

    I hope one day we get a pick 6 game here.

      This Jumbo Bucks Lotto,looks like a Pick 6 game to me.

      The other game ,All or Nothing, has 6 numbers to pick, but only has top prize of $250K.

      This new game can grow big time jackpots in the long run.

      Have fun GA LP.

                That's not how it works bud. You have to have a 3 in your picks.

                 

                I bought $20 worth, and won back $3 :-)

                  I'm not understanding all these comments.  The first drawing has not taken place yet.  It happens at 11:00 PM tonight.  Also, a $3 prize is not even offered.  $5 is the lowest prize.  Are you guys feeling OK?

                    CJ is ok not sure about Matt Todd.  If you pay an extra $1 and it matches one of your numbers you could win up to $500.  I bought one with the cash match  option and won $1

                      Ah, ok, he was talking about the Cash Match.  Everyone was posting draw numbers, so I'd assumed that's what he was referring to.  Makes sense now.

                          Aww did I offend you.. Sorry.  Just didn't want you thinking you was about to win $500 if a 3 dropped...  That's why it's an instant prize... Even the ticket prints..

                           

                          match any cash match # below with any of your job lotto #s above and win the prize shown instantly. Multiplier only applies to cash match. Present winning tkt to clerk to claim prize and receive and exchange tkt..

                           

                          Reading is fundamental.
