About Colorado Lottery
Colorado offers an interesting take on the concept of a state lottery - the Colorado Lottery is actually an enterprise fund that receives no money from the Colorado General Fund in order to operate successfully. With more than 30 years of experience, the Colorado Lottery is dedicated to creating big winners and preserving the state's natural beauty.
History of the Colorado Lottery
The Colorado Lottery was established on July 1st, 1982 in order to provide funding for the state's Conservation Trust Fund as well as state parks, outdoor recreation initiatives and construction projects. The first game, a scratchcard, went on sale in January 1983. Sales far outpaced initial expectations and the first lottery drawing was held on April 23rd of that same year.
Lotto, the state's first jackpot game, was launched in 1989 and the Colorado Lottery began selling Powerball tickets in August 2001. Mega Millions tickets went on sale in Colorado on May 16th, 2010.
The Colorado Lottery is set to continue operating until 2024, and given its popularity among residents, they won't need to worry about that upcoming deadline!

Playing Colorado Lottery Games
Lotto is Colorado's very own jackpot game. In operation since 1989, it offers residents the chance to win a jackpot worth a minimum of $1 million, which rolls over and increases in value until it is won. Tickets cost $1 each and players select six numbers from 1 to 42. Drawings take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:35 PM. If a player matches all six of the numbers drawn, they'll win the jackpot. Here's a breakdown of the prizes and their associated odds of winning:
|Winning Tier||Prize||Odds of Winning|
|Match 6 of 6||Jackpot||1 in 5,245,786|
|Match 5 of 6||Pari-mutuel||1 in 24,287||Match 4 of 6||Pari-mutuel||1 in 556||Match 3 of 6||Fixed $3||1 in 37|
|Overall odds of winning any Lotto prize are 1 in 35|
Cash5 gives players the chance to win a top prize of $20,000 every day of the week! Drawings are held nightly at 7:35 PM and tickets cost just $1 per line. Players select five numbers from 1 to 32. To win the top prize, you'll have to match all five numbers drawn. Here's how it works:

|Match 4 of 5||$200||1 in 1,492||Match 4 of 6||$10||1 in 57||Match 2 of 5||$1||1 in 7|

Scratch games are a great choice for those who want the chance to be rewarded straight away! These games can be purchased from authorized Colorado Lottery retailers and have a price range from $1 to $20. The higher the price of the ticket, the greater the amount and value of the prizes you could win.
Claiming Colorado Lottery Prizes
Players have 180 days from the date of a drawing to redeem a Lotto, Cash5, Powerball or Mega Millions games. Scratch prizes expire 180 days after the announced end-of-game date.
If you win a prize worth $599 or less, you can usually redeem it any authorized Colorado Lottery retailer. You can also visit one of the four claims centers in the state to redeem your prize. These offices are located in Denver, Fort Collins, Grand Junction and Pueblo. Be sure to bring the signed winning ticket and photo ID when you visit.
Prizes worth $600 or more must be claimed at one of these four centers or claimed by mail. If you choose the latter option, you'll need to send a completed claim form and your winning ticket to the office in Pueblo.
Any prize worth more than $5,000 will have 25 percent deducted for federal taxes and additional four percent will be deducted for Colorado state taxes.
You must be at least 18 years old to play Colorado Lottery games.
Have fun, play responsibly, and remember that you can't win a prize for a lottery game you never entered. If you want a chance to win big on Colorado Lotto, Powerball or Mega Millions, then you'll need to buy a ticket first! By remembering this simple rule, you can avoid becoming the target of a lottery scam. Read the scams page for more information.
