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!
Hoosier Lotto drawings take place every Wednesday and Saturday night at 11:00 PM ET. The cutoff time to pick up tickets on draw nights is 10:39 PM; sales restart following the draw.
How to Play
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. 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.
You can also choose to play your favorite numbers for up to 10 draws in a row - simply mark the number of draws in the Multi-Draw area of the playslip.
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 your numbers an extra chance to win cash prizes up to $1 million. All Plus non-jackpot prizes can also be increased with the multiplier.
