When you purchase a Poker Lotto ticket, you receive five random cards. If those cards form a winning hand, you win instantly. Win or lose – those cards are also eligible for the next Poker Lotto nightly drawing. Every night at 7:29 p.m., five winning cards are randomly drawn. If two or more of your cards match any of those cards, you win. Match all five cards and win the grand prize of $100,000! Prize amounts and odds for the nightly drawing are as follows:
There are two important things to remember about the nightly drawing. First, you must have the exact same card to have a match. For example, even though they are both sixes, a Six of Hearts does not match a Six of Diamonds. So if one of the cards drawn during the nightly drawing is a Six of Hearts, you must also have a Six of Hearts to have a matching card.
The second thing to remember is that the nightly drawing is an entirely separate game from the instant-win game played when you purchase a ticket. Winning the instant-win game is based on whether you receive a winning hand. The nightly drawing is exclusively a matching game. Cards from the nightly drawing are not used to form a winning hand. The only way to win the nightly drawing is if two or more of your cards match the cards drawn.
