How to Play Lotto

The Colorado Lotto+ is a revamped version of Colorado Lotto. Though the remodeled version is charged a little higher than the original one but offers improved odds of winning the game. The winning odds have improved from 1 in 5.2 million to 1 in 3.8 million. Further, the odds of winning any amount has grown from 1 in 35 to 1 in 30, which means you hold a chance to win the prize. With better odds, bigger jackpots, a multiplier, and the option to add Plus, there are more ways for you to win the Colorado Lotto+. The drawings for Colorado Lotto+ are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at approximately 7:35 p.m. Don’t miss a chance to win!

To play Colorado Lotto+, you have to pick 6 out of 40 numbers. You need to mark your desired numbers on the playslip available at any licensed lottery retailer. Or simply ask your retailer for a Colorado Lotto+ Quick Pick to have your numbers randomly generated by the computer.

A Colorado Lotto+ ticket costs $2. After purchasing, you’ll receive a ticket with your numbers and a multiplier - 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, which will multiply your winnings except the jackpot by whichever multiplier number is printed on the ticket. The Jackpot starts at $1 million and keeps growing until someone wins it.

For an additional $1 per play, you can add the Plus option on your ticket. The numbers you marked on your Colorado Lotto+ ticket by either selecting yourself or through Quick Pick will be used for an additional drawing, conducted immediately after the Colorado Lotto+ drawing. If all six of your selected numbers match the second set of numbers drawn, you will win a $250,000 Plus Jackpot. Any other winnings, i.e. matching 3 up to 5 numbers and not including the 6 out of 6 jackpot will be multiplied by the multiplier amount printed on your ticket. The numbers drawn for both Colorado Lotto+ and the Plus option will be available just after the drawing. The winnings from both the Colorado Lotto+ and Plus drawings will be combined.
The Colorado Lotto+ also offers you the option of purchasing up to 26 drawings of consecutive 13 weeks, in advance with the Advance Play. Mark the Advance Play box on your playslip and play the same numbers for up to 26 consecutive drawings. Always ensure to check the accuracy of details filled on your playslip and sign the back of your ticket for authentication.
