Lotto 47 Prizes

Lotto 47 gives you the opportunity to play for a jackpot worth at least $1 million every Wednesday and Saturday. You win the jackpot if all six of the numbers you have selected are the same as the six winning numbers that are randomly selected at 7:29pm on draw nights.

You can also win prizes for matching fewer numbers. Get at least three the same and you win $5, and the value increases for matching four or five numbers. The following table shows all the payouts you can receive and the odds of winning each prize.

The jackpot starts at $1 million and increases if it is not won. It keeps growing until someone matches all six numbers, so it has been known to climb higher than $30 million. If there are multiple winners of the jackpot, the money is split between them.

The advertized jackpot amount represents the annuity option, if winners choose to accept the prize as a series of annual payouts over 30 years. The alternative is the cash option, which is a lump sum that will be lower than the annuity figure.

If you win, you have 60 days from the date when you claim your prize to request the cash option. All prizes in Michigan must be claimed within one year of the draw taking place. Go to the How to Claim page for more information about what you need to do to collect your payouts.
