Double Play

Double Play is a game that you can add on to Lotto 47 to give your numbers another chance to win. It couldn't be simpler to play and, as the name of the game suggests, it could reward you with a payout that's worth twice as much as the main Lotto 47 drawing.

How to Play

Double Play is only available in-store in Michigan, so you can't play online. To take part, just mark the Double Play option on your playslip. It costs an extra $1 per play to add the game.

You don't have to select a separate set of numbers. The six numbers from 1 to 47 that you picked for the main Lotto 47 game will also be entered into the Double Play draw, which happens immediately afterwards at approximately 7:30pm every Wednesday and Saturday. It's not possible to take part in Double Play without entering Lotto 47.

When the drawing takes place, six numbers are selected at random. You can see the latest results straight away by going to the Numbers page.

EZmatch is another game that you can add to Lotto 47, where you can win prizes instantly. You can add Double Play or EZmatch to your Lotto 47 ticket without having to play the other, or you can add both.

Double Play Payouts

Just like the main game, you can win prizes on Double Play by matching at least three of the six numbers drawn. The payouts on offer are worth double the amount that you can win on the main game, apart from the jackpot which is a fixed $1.5 million and does not roll over if there are no winners. The jackpot is shared if there are multiple winners.

The odds of winning are exactly the same for Double Play as they are for Lotto 47. The table below shows all the odds and the prizes you can win.

Double Play Prizes
Numbers Matched Odds of Winning Prize
6 1 in 10,737,573 $1.5 million
5 1 in 43,649 $5,000
4 1 in 873 $200
3 1 in 50 $10
The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 47

You can win prizes on Double Play and Lotto 47 on the same night if enough of your numbers come up in both drawings. If you win the Double Play jackpot, you'll have to decide whether you want to accept your share of the $1.5 million as an annuity over 30 years, or take a cash lump sum.
