How to Play Lotto

Lotto is the original in-state draw game offered by the Missouri Lottery that gives its players the shot of becoming a millionaire instantly, by just matching six numbers. The game has a progressive jackpot that starts at $1 million and keeps on growing until there’s a winner. Not limiting your options to win, the game provides its players with the options of EZ Match and Lotto Doubler and a chance to play your numbers for up to 15 consecutive draws and double your non-jackpot winnings. What are you waiting for then? Grab your lotto tickets and mark the winning numbers.

Playing Missouri Lotto is super easy, fun, and highly rewarding. All you need to do is, get your hands on the lottery playslip worth $1 for two plays and select two sets of six different numbers from a field of 1 to 44, and mark them on your playslip. Or you have the option of Quick Pick if you prefer playing numbers randomly generated by the terminal. If your selected lottery numbers match the digits drawn by the lottery machine, you bag the winning lottery prizes.

Adding more to your chances to win, Missouri Lottery also provides you with a special option of playing your numbers for multiple draws. Selecting the “Multi-Draw” option on your lotto playslip, assists you by giving you the chance of playing the same lottery numbers for up to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, or 15 consecutive drawings. Thereby not letting you miss any chance of winning.

You need to hand over the completed playslip along with the selected game add-on options to the lottery retailer. Remember your lottery ticket and not the playslip is the bearer instrument. It is mandatory to sign the back of your ticket so that no one except you can claim the prize amount. You are completely responsible for the accuracy of your ticket.

Not limiting your options to win, the Missouri Lottery provides you with the chance of doubling your lottery winnings. While purchasing a ticket, the lottery will designate certain lotto tickets as "This is a Doubler Ticket". If you win a non-jackpot prize, your winnings are doubled.
