About the Connecticut Lottery

The Connecticut State Lottery began in 1972, after several years of lobbying by then-state legislator John A. “Tony” Miscikoski. Since then, the Connecticut Lottery has paid out over $17.4 billion in prizes.

More importantly, it has also raised over $9.5 billion for the state of Connecticut’s General Fund. These contributions are then split among various domains requiring state funding, from educational services to public health and safety.

Connecticut Lottery Tickets

You can get official Connecticut Lottery tickets from the 2,900 authorized resellers throughout the state.

Can I buy CT Lottery tickets online?

No, you can’t. The Connecticut Lottery doesn’t sell tickets through the web or by mail.

CT Lottery Tickets Payment Methods

Depending on the retailer’s policies, the Connecticut Lottery takes payments through cash, certified bank checks, traveler’s checks, money orders, prepaid gift cards and gas cards, and debit cards. You cannot buy tickets with credit cards or through credit.

Connecticut Lottery Games and Drawing Schedules

Lucky for Life

Lucky for Life is a multi-state regional lottery game for the New England area. The Connecticut Lottery participates alongside the official lotteries of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

To play, you pick 5 numbers from 1-48 and a Lucky Ball number from 1-18.

A jackpot win gives you $7,000 a week for life — all you need to do is match all 6 winning numbers. The second prize win, meanwhile, gives you $25,000 a year for life. You can win this by matching all 5 regular numbers but not the Lucky Ball.

Lucky for Life draws take place every Monday and Thursday.

Lotto!

Lotto! is the latest overhaul of Connecticut’s Classic Lotto game. Top prizes depend on the ticket sales for the game. Prize amounts for the top 3 levels roll over whenever nobody wins.

To play, you must select 6 numbers from 1-44. You must match all 6 winning draw numbers to hit the jackpot.

Lotto! Draws are held every Tuesday and Friday.

Cash5

Cash5 is a daily game with a jackpot that runs up to $100,000. To play, you must pick 5 different numbers from 1 to 35. You can also add a sixth number, called the Kicker, for the chance to win additional prizes. You must match all 5 winning draw numbers to snag the jackpot.

Cash5 draws are held every evening.

Lucky Links

Lucky Links offers a jackpot of up to $50,000 and a unique playing experience. Instead of picking numbers, you get 8 randomly assigned to you and arranged in a pattern on your ticket.

Every day, 8 winning numbers are drawn. Your prizes depend on how many straight horizontal, vertical, or diagonal lines are formed by the matching numbers on your ticket. If you get 8 lines, you hit the jackpot. You can also pay extra to activate 2XPOWER, which doubles your prize if you have 3-6 winning lines on your ticket.

Lucky Links draws are held every day.

Play4

The Connecticut Lottery Play4 game runs twice-daily draws with a jackpot of $5000 for each draw. Your top attainable prize depends on how much you wager and the playstyle you choose. You win the biggest jackpot when your ticket matches the winning draw numbers in exact order.

To play, you must pick 4 numbers, each from 0-9, and choose from the following playstyles:

  • Straight: You must match the winning numbers in the exact order.
  • Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order.
  • Straight / Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order or in exact order.
  • Combo: You get to play Straight bets for all possible combinations of your chosen numbers, boosting your chance of winning.

Connecticut Lottery Play4 games are held twice a day: once at midday and again in the evening.

Play3

The Connecticut Play3 lottery game runs twice-daily draws, each with a jackpot of up to $2500. How much you can win, however, depends on your chosen playstyle and your bet value.

To play, you must pick a number from 000 to 999. You then choose a playstyle and bet value, as well as a draw schedule (midday, evening, or both). You win the jackpot when your combination matches the winning draw numbers in exact order.

You can choose from the following playstyles:

  • Straight: You must match the winning numbers in the exact order.
  • Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order.
  • Straight/Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order or in exact order.
  • Combo: You get to play Straight bets for all possible combinations of your chosen numbers, boosting your chance of winning.
  • Pairs: You select 2 numbers (instead of 3). These must match the first 2, the last 2, or the first and last number of the winning draw in exact order.

Connecticut Play3 games take place at midday and evening every day.
