"The Hoosier Lotto + - Every Weds. & Sat. from the Hoosier Lottery"
Current Jackpot US$ 4,000,000
The Hoosier Lotto of Indiana is organized and operated by the State of Indiana and is the only USA Lottery company that uses its State nickname as the name of its lottery – as opposed to the actual name of the State.
The Indiana State Lottery was first launched when state citizens voted in November 1988 in favor of having a lottery. This then passed into law in May 1989 and the very first Hoosier lottery tickets were then put out on sale on Friday October 13th 1989.
Friday the 13th…
Friday the 13th! Whilst some folk may consider this date to be not so great, Indiana Lottery players must have been feeling lucky!
The first Indiana Lotto tickets sold were scratch-off tickets and on that first day – an impressive 8.19 MILLION tickets were sold.
Indiana likes to offer a good return and so sixty one cents out of every US$ 1.00 spent on its Indiana Lotto games goes right back to players. That is a total of more than US$ 13.9 BILLION being paid straight back to the pockets of its winners as of June 2019!
The Hoosier Lottery offers numerous different games in its overall portfolio including the Multi-State Powerball of which the state is a member, the Mega Millions, Cash4Life, Daily 3, Daily 4, Cash 5, Quick Draw, scratch-offs and its primary jackpot lotto game which we shall look at in greater detail here – the Hoosier Lotto PLUS.
The Hoosier Lotto + is a traditional lotto style jackpot game and is the most popular Indiana State lottery game played every single week.
The Hoosier Lottery’s first lotto style game was Lotto Cash which started in April 1990 with the initial draw taking place on May 5th.
The current Hoosier Lotto replaced the Lotto Cash game back in September 1994 and is one of the most innovative lotteries in the USA. It is designed to have more winners and large jackpots and to this end it is the one of the only USA Lottery jackpot games to offer its players a prize for matching just 2 out of the 6 numbers.
The Hoosier Lotto offers a total of five different ways in which you can win – 2 or more numbers matched will win you a prize.
The Hoosier Lottery jackpot starts off at US$ 1 MILLION and will increase in size by a minimum of US$ 100,000 each time that the top prize is not won by way of a jackpot rollover making for some very large wins to play for. There is no limit to how high the Indiana Lotto jackpot can grow, which is what makes the game so popular.
The Indiana State Lottery makes draws for the Hoosier Lotto twice every week on both Wednesdays & Saturdays at 11.00pm local time and you can check the winning Hoosier Lotto numbers here after every draw and on their official website – hoosierlottery.com.
The Hoosier Lotto uses what’s known as a 6/46 matrix which means that when playing, you need to pick 6 numbers out of a number range from 1 to 46. Should you match all 6 of the numbers then you shall be a Hoosier Lotto jackpot winner.
A Quick Pick facility is also available when playing Hoosier Lottery games very similar to the “Lucky Dip” that is used with the UK National Lottery or Europe’s EuroMillions – which means that you can ask for the computer terminal to determine all of your Indiana Lottery numbers for you.
Win With Just 2 Numbers!
There are other thousands of other cash prizes you can win too if you match either 5 of the numbers drawn, 4 numbers, 3 numbers, plus the Hoosier Lotto is the only jackpot lottery game in the USA where you can even be a winner by matching just 2 numbers!
So playing the Indiana State Lottery – Hoosier Lotto is simple. You just select your own 6 numbers or let the computer or retailer pick them automatically for you using its random number generator.
Each entry on the Hoosier Lotto game will cost you just US$ 2.00.
An EXTRA Chance to win with LOTTO PLUS!
An exciting addition to the Hoosier Lotto is the +PLUS option which provides you with a 2nd chance to win a jackpot prize!
For an extra US$ 1.00 you can also win even more prizes of up to US$ 1 MILLION by playing using the Hoosier Lotto PLUS option.
The Hoosier Lotto PLUS + draw is a 2nd drawing that takes place immediately after the main Hoosier Lotto draw and comprises of a completely separate set of 6 Lotto PLUS winning lottery numbers.
Whether you play the standard Hoosier Lotto game or the Hoosier Lotto PLUS, your entry also gets a built-in prize multiplier which will increase the value of your win by either 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x.
