About the Connecticut Lottery

Like many US state lotteries, the Connecticut Lottery was conceived with the purpose of generating revenue for the state. The Connecticut Lottery began in 1971 when Governor Thomas J. Meskill signed Public Act No. 865. A bipartisan team of commissioners was then selected to get everything in place for the first draw the following year. Since then, the Connecticut Lottery has generated over $10.6 billion of revenue for local causes.

Connecticut Lottery Rules

There are a few things to consider before you purchase a Connecticut Lottery ticket:

  • You must be 18 years of age to play;
  • Non-residents and foreign persons who win $599 or more must process winning tickets at the Connecticut Lottery Headquarters;
  • Otherwise, anyone can purchase a Connecticut Lottery ticket  —  you do not have to be a US citizen or Connecticut resident.

Connecticut Lottery Tickets

Customers can buy tickets from any of the 2,800 retailers located across the state. ‘Lottery Sold Here’ signs are common at these locations. After the draw, you must claim any winnings within 180 days.

Can I buy CT tickets online?

No, Connecticut Lottery tickets cannot be purchased online. Instead, customers must pick up tickets from one of the state retailers selling tickets. Indeed, these retailers earn revenue from their lottery ticket sales, meaning these purchases are another way the lottery supports the local community.

Connecticut Lottery Games and Drawing Schedules

So, what are the main CT lottery games on offer?

Powerball

Powerball is a lottery game played all across the US. Join your fellow Americans every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59pm to see if you can land a jackpot of at least $20 million. With a $2 ticket, unlike Mega Millions you choose five white ball numbers and one Powerball number  —  match all of these to land the jackpot prize. You can increase potential non-jackpot winnings up to 10x by adding the $1 Power Play to your ticket.

Mega Millions

Another of the nation’s favourite lottery games is Mega Millions. Once again, Mega Millions jackpot winners will take home at least $20 million. Mega Millions tickets cost $2 and involve five white ball numbers and one yellow Mega Ball from 1 to 25. Matching all six of those Mega Millions numbers lands you the jackpot, while you can also pick up Lottery prizes with eight other smaller combinations. Finally, the Megaplier costs an extra $1 and multiples non-jackpot wins up to 5x.

Lotto

Connecticut’s main state lottery game is the Lotto! Numbers are drawn Tuesdays and Fridays around 10:38pm and tickets cost just $1. Unlike Mega Millions Players choose six numbers and can land the jackpot, which is typically around $2 million, by matching all six. Smaller prizes are up for grabs for matching three, four, or five numbers.

Lucky for Life

Lucky for Life is the nightly lottery game offering a top prize of $365,000 paid to you every year, for life. Unlike, Mega Millions A $2 ticket with five white ball numbers and one Lucky Ball also puts you in contention of the nine additional prize levels from $3 to $25,000 a year for life.

Cash5

A top prize of $100,000 is up for grabs in Cash5, a nightly lottery game costing $1 per wager. In Cash5, you choose five numbers 1 to 35 and have the option of adding a Kicker for $0.50. The Kicker gives you an extra number and better chances of success.

Play3 with Wild Ball

If you’d like to have two chances a day to win prizes up to $2,500, Play3 with Wild Ball could be for you. This is a flexible game that offers several ways to win:

  • Straight
  • Box
  • Straight/Box
  • Pairs
  • Combo

With these options, you can wager between $0.50 and $5.00. Choosing a Wild Ball doubles the cost of your ticket and can replace one of the lottery numbers drawn to help you win.

Play4 with Wild Ball

Play4 with Wild Ball naturally works in a similar way, but offers a higher potential win of $25,000, as there are more winning combinations available with four numbers and an additional Wild Ball.
