On September 22, the Colorado Lottery replaced its 30-year-old Lotto game with the new-and-improved Colorado Lotto+. Since its launch in 1989, Lotto has been made, played and paid, right here, in Colorado, creating over 430 millionaires. And, now, for the first time, it’s getting an upgrade. With bigger jackpots, better odds, a built in multiplier, and the option to add Plus, now there are more ways for you to win.
The price for the new and improved lotto is $2. For an extra buck, players can add Plus and their numbers will be entered into an additional drawing for a chance to win up to $250,000. Any non-jackpot prize will also be multiplied by the automatic multiplier. Each play has a randomly assigned automatic multiplier of either 2X, 3X, 4X, or 5X for any non-jackpot prize.
Colorado Lotto+ is similar to the classic Lotto game in that players choose six numbers, or let the computer choose a “quick pick”. The game matrix will change from a field of 42 numbers to a field of 40, giving players better odds of winning.
Many of the Lottery’s seasoned players have long requested changes to the old but lovable Lotto game, as it had remained unchanged in more than three decades. Since the Lotto game launched in January 1989, there have been 438 Lotto millionaires made in Colorado. Learn more about Colorado Lotto+
