Lotto 6/49 & Extra

Lotto 6/49 offers two prizes for each draw - the regular jackpot that starts at $5 Million, plus the GUARANTEED $1 Million Prize every draw. And remember to say “YES” to the $1 Extra for the chance to win $500,000.


When is the draw?

Draws happen every Wednesday and Saturday night after 7:30 pm PT.


How to play

Each $3 play gets you one set of 6 numbers from 1 – 49, plus a bonus number. Choose the set of 6 numbers yourself, or ask for a Quick Pick to have a random set of numbers chosen for you. The bonus number is randomly selected for you. Your $3 ticket also automatically gets you one 10-digit number for the GUARANTEED $1 Million Prize draw.

Say "YES" to the $1 Extra for the chance to win $500,000.

You can buy Lotto 6/49 tickets online at PlayNow.com
