How to Play Lotto America

You must mark off five main numbers from a pool of 52 and a single Star Ball from ten to play Lotto America. Each line costs $1, although you can add the All Star Bonus option for a further $1, which multiplies non-jackpot prizes.

You can also indicate whether you would like to enter the Wednesday draw, Saturday draw or both, and, if your state allows advance play, the number of weeks you wish for your ticket to remain active.

There is a $2 prize for matching the Star Ball alone, with payouts increasing as you match more numbers. Match all six balls selected to win the jackpot, which grows by at least $50,000 every time a draw goes by without a winner.

Ticket cut-off times vary between states, as does the period in which you must collect any Lotto America prizes won.

Participating Lotto America States

The 13 participating Lotto America states all used to take part in Hot Lotto before it ended in October 2017. The only Hot Lotto state not to join Lotto America at the launch in November 2017 was New Hampshire, which will begin selling tickets for the multi-state lottery in February 2018.

All-Star Bonus

All Star Bonus is a multiplier that boosts the value of all Lotto America prizes except the jackpot by two, three, four or five times. You must opt in to the additional game when you buy your ticket; you cannot add it on afterwards.

The value of the multiplier in a draw is determined at random before the main draw takes place and all players who added All Star Bonus to their ticket receive the same multiplier for prizes they may win.

This table shows each possible prize value, depending on which multiplier is drawn.

3x1 in 3.2

Lotto America History

The original Lotto America ran from 1988 until 1992, when it was replaced by Powerball. The Multi-State Lottery Association retained the rights to the name and, when it was decided that Hot Lotto would come to an end, Lotto America was relaunched. The first draw after the revamp took place on Wednesday 15th November 2017, and a player from Minnesota became the first jackpot winner under the new rules when they landed $22.8 million on 15th March 2018.
