Black Pearl is the Indiana Hoosier Lottery’s other “Now & Later” game that combines instant play and draw games. Top prizes are fixed at $20,000 for instant play and $500,000 for the draw game.
To join, you only need to buy a Black Pearl ticket, valued at $5 each. Half of the ticket is your instant play card. This will indicate what numbers you need to match (Black Pearl Numbers) and how much you stand to win. You only need to check if your assigned numbers match any of the Black Pearl Numbers.
The rest of the ticket carries your 8 draw game numbers, one of which will be in a Black Pearl symbol. Each draw, a single random number is called. To win the jackpot, all 8 of your ticket numbers must match the winning draw number. If the ticket number in the Black Pearl symbol is one of your matches, you’ll win additional prizes.
For each ticket, you can enter any one draw of your choice while the Black Pearl game is ongoing.
