Washington's Lotto is a six-number game that offers the chance to win a jackpot that starts at $1 million and continues rolling over until it's won. The in-state exclusive game has three draws each week, on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights at 8 PM PT. Two plays cost just $1. Ticket sales pause before each draw at 7:45 PM, and resume at 8:01 PM.
How to Play
To get started, just choose two sets of six numbers from 1 through 49, or choose Quick Pick and the lottery computer will randomly generate them for you. The cost of a ticket is $1 for two plays.
You can also play your lucky numbers multiple times, up to 25 drawings in a row.
If there is more than one jackpot-winning ticket that matches all six numbers, the winners will share the jackpot evenly.
Lotto offers two options for jackpot winners to receive their payout: the 50% Cash Option, a single lump sum payment, or the Yearly Option, an annuity paid as 25 yearly installments.
For example, if the jackpot is won at its starting value of $1 million and the winner chooses the cash option, they will receive $500,000 before taxes ($380,000 after federal tax withholdings).
If the winner chooses the Yearly Option, they'll receive an annual payment of $40,000 before taxes ($30,400 after tax withholdings).
