The jackpot is progressive in nature and keeps on rolling until there’s a winner. The lottery is known to produce more than 1000 jackpot winners. Who knows you’re the next! Along with great odds of winning, the game also offers multiple add-on options like EZmatch, Double Play, or a Multiplier to boost your winnings. Who’d even wish to miss such a game!!

For each panel played, you have to select six numbers from 1 through 53 and mark them on your playslip or mark the Quick Pick option on your panel and let the terminal randomly generate the numbers for you.
