Lotto America features a rolling jackpot that starts at $2 million and grows until it’s won.  The game’s All Star Bonus option lets players multiply their non-jackpot prizes by up to 5 times!

Lotto America Drawing Schedule

Lotto America has drawings every Wednesday and Saturday evening at approximately 10:00 PM CT.

Tickets may be purchased until 8:59 PM on draw nights.

Lotto America Payout and Mechanics

To play, just pick 5 numbers from 1 to 52 and an additional Star Ball number from 1 to 10.

All Star Bonus

For an additional $1 per play, you can enable the All Star Bonus to multiply any non-jackpot prizes by up to 5 times. During every draw, an All Star Bonus multiplier number between 2 to 5 is drawn before the official numbers. This determines how many times all non-jackpot prizes are multiplied.
