About the Rhode Island Lottery
The Rhode Island Lottery was inaugurated in 1974 and is a charter member of the Multi-State Lottery Association. The revenue the lottery generates goes to Rhode Island’s State General Fund. This benefits all RI residents with support towards tax relief, education, public safety, law enforcement, and human services.
Rhode Island Lottery Tickets
Rhode Island Lottery tickets can be purchased from any authorized retailer within the state of Rhode Island.
Winning tickets are valid for 1 year after the draw date, which means that players must claim their prizes within that time frame.
Can I buy RI Lottery tickets online?
No. The Rhode Island Lottery does not sell tickets over the internet. Visit your nearest retailer to participate in any of their games.
Rhode Island Lottery Games and Drawing Schedule
In Lucky For Life, players can win a top prize of $1,000 per day for life, and a second prize of $25,000 a year for life. These prizes are guaranteed to be paid to winners for a minimum of 20 years.
To play, pick 5 numbers from 1 to 48, plus a Lucky Ball number from 1 to 18.
Lucky For Life drawings are held every Monday and Thursday at 10:38 PM EST.
Wild Money is Rhode Island Lottery’s progressive jackpot game. That means that the jackpot – which starts at $20,000 – gets progressively larger until it’s won.
To play, pick 5 numbers from 1 to 35. Matching all 5 will award players with the jackpot.
Wild Money drawings are held every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 7:29 PM EST.
To play The Numbers game, first you must choose your game type (4 digits, 3 digits, back 3 digits, or front 2 digits). Next, select your bet type (straight, box, or combo). Third, set your wager. Finally, pick your numbers depending on your game type. Successfully match your chosen numbers with the official draw to win up to $25,000. The Instant Match feature allows players to win up to $500 instantly.
The Numbers drawings are two times daily. The first drawing is at 1:30 PM EST on all days, and the second one is at 6:59 PM (except on Sundays when it is at 6:29 PM).
Rhode Island Lottery’s Keno game can be played 3 different ways: regular Keno with a top prize of $100,000; Keno Overtime with a top prize of $500,000; and Keno Plus with a massive $1 million jackpot.
All 3 versions will require players to choose up to 10 spots (numbers) to play. Winning will depend on your wager and how many spots you play.
Keno drawings are held everyday, every 4 minutes, starting at 5:00 AM EST (7:00 AM on Sundays) and ending at 12:44 AM on all days.
Win up to $100,000 with Rhode Island Lottery’s Bingo game.
To play, just pick your wager amount, set how many boards you want to play per game, and how many consecutive games you’d like to join. Your Bingo boards will be randomly generated by the terminal and then 30 numbers are “called” or “drawn.” Match these numbers with the numbers on your board to form patterns and win cash prizes.
Bingo drawings are held everyday, every 8 minutes, starting at 5:00 AM EST (7:00 AM on Sundays) and ending at 12:42 AM on all days.
