US Flag

5/52 + 1/10

1 in 25,989,600

$1 per ticket

you can buy a multiplier for $1 more but I am not going to mess with that 


Not the best odds to prize ratio - but my current state's big jackpot game wont grow beyond a $400k cash prize so nothing else going on haha

Plus being only a $1 ticket and a short drive for me - figured I would try.

"The jackpot starts at $2 million and rolls over to the next drawing if it is not won. It can keep growing until it is won as there is no jackpot cap, and the grand prize has been known to roll for several months, pushing it well beyond $10 million."

    Current Jackpot:

    $2.65 Million

     

    Default seems to be a $50,000 increase unless increased ticket sales.

          I remember back in the day MN had Hot Lotto before and it got cut all around - 

          then this Lotto America game came around.

           

          I have never seen or heard of anyone playing it - never witnessed another human being purchase a ticket beside me.

          I don't think many people know its around.

            Just started back in playing this one again....My chosen numbers haven't been off that much over the last few draws.....We shall see Naughty

              Nice!

              Good luck on the next draw.

              I wonder what determines which states play this game - seems to be all over - but only a few.

               

              I remember playing this the last time it was north of $20 million

                  Not the greatest odds but I would play this game if it was available locally. For $1 it's definitely better than Megabucks and certainly more appealing than PB or MM, at least in my opinion. 

                  This whole pandemic thing has me wondering if we'll ever see substantive changes to the gaming options here. I'm sure the state lottery doesn't want the competition that LA would bring. Yet at the same time they're resistant to make the current games more appealing. Good business model, eh?

                    You are correct on the odds aspect SAR....That ole dollar price tag is the trick for me...."dollar and a dream"...better than spending $2 and having 11 times the odds

                      Exactly - a buck is just a good price for a x2 a week game.

                        LOL. I'm a broken record about this, but I play MM and PB hoping just to hit for the million. The odds are half of Tx Lotto, and Lotto America, and after taxes at my old fogey age, well, I think I could get by til I croak.

                        Good luck guys!

                        CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                        A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

                          I already get PB and MM - so this is just another excuse for me to play another game

                            Do you get the Powerplay multiplier? I always do when getting PB or MM tix just in case I hit a lower tier prize. I'd feel bad if I hit $1M knowing it could have been at least $2M with the powerplay (or more with MM megaplier).

                            Case in point, within the past few weeks a woman in this state hit the $50,000 prize on PB. But the powerplay number for the draw was 5X so had she paid the extra dollar she would have won $250,000. That is a ridiculous amount of money to leave on the table for want of spending an extra dollar, don't you think?

                              I hope you get the multiplier when you play PB and MM, Kenny. Smash LOL

                              Oddly enough the lower tier jackpots for Lotto America aren't that appealing so I could see not caring about that option for this game so much.
