West Virginia’s Lotto America is a multi-state game that plays similarly to Powerball, except it has fewer numbers and overall better odds of winning. The jackpot starts at $2 million and grows until someone wins it. With the All Star Bonus, you get a chance to win bigger secondary prizes, too!

Lotto America Drawing Schedule

Lotto America drawings are held every twice a week – Wednesday and Saturday evenings, at 10:30 PM EST.

Make sure to purchase your tickets before 9:59 PM on draw nights to qualify for that evening’s draw.

Lotto America Payout and Mechanics

To play Lotto America, simply pick 5 numbers from 1 to 52, plus an additional Star Ball number from 1 to 10.

Tickets cost $1 per play.

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.
