Game Information

Hoosier Lottery fans can play Mega Millions and Powerball, but there are also great local games to try.

Hoosier Lotto

Hoosier Lotto was launched in September 1994 to the delight of lottery fans across the state. The jackpot starts at $1 million and will increase in value until it’s won. The rollovers continue until someone matches all six numbers drawn and wins the top prize!

To play, just purchase a ticket for $2 and select six numbers from 1 to 46 or opt for a Quick Pick to let the lottery terminal produce random numbers for them. Drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday evenings.

The game also features a built-in multiplier that can increase non-jackpot prizes by two, three, five or even ten times.

Add Plus to your ticket for an extra $1.00 for more ways to win. The Plus drawing is held after the main draw and gives you an extra chance to win cash prizes up to $1 million. All Plus non-jackpot prizes can also be increased with the multiplier.

Here’s what you could win on the Hoosier Lotto base game, without the multiplier or Plus:

Hoosier Lotto Prizes and Odds of Winning
Winning Tier Prize Odds of Winning
Match 6 of 6 Jackpot 1 in 9,366,819
Match 5 of 6 Pari-mutuel prize (estimated $500) 1 in 39,028
Match 4 of 6 Pari-mutuel prize (estimated $20) 1 in 800
Match 3 of 6 $2 1 in 47
Match 2 of 6 Free Hoosier Lotto Ticket 1 in 6
Odds of winning any Hoosier Lotto prize are 1 in 6

History of the Hoosier Lottery

The Hoosier Lottery was established in Indiana in November 1988 when voters overwhelmingly approved a lottery referendum. Sales of scratch-off games began in October 1989 and the show Hoosier Millionaire aired its first episode on October 28th, 1989 and would run successfully until November 2005. The state joined Lotto*America in October 1990 and began to sell Powerball tickets in April 1992. Mega Millions tickets went on sale in Indiana in January 2010.

Proceeds from the Hoosier Lottery are used to support pensions for police and firefighters across Indiana. Additional recipients of lottery funding include the Teachers’ Retirement Fund and the Build Indiana Fund. By the end of FY 2013, the Hoosier Lottery had allocated $4.3 billion to these great causes.

Rules

All Hoosier Lottery players must be at least 18 years old.
