Classic Lotto 47’s jackpot has rolled over 27 times since Halloween of 2012!
The largest CL47 jackpots of 2012 were sold in Livonia in January for $8.8 million and then a $6.3 million jackpot was purchased in Bay City in late April. Neither of these were the largest Classic Lotto 47 jackpots since this game debuted in May of 2005. That top slot goes to the March 1, 2008 drawing with a $23,597,120 jackpot.
Classic Lotto tickets are $1 for each wager. Drawings take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Tickets must be purchased by 7:08 p.m. the day of the drawing which takes place at 7:29 p.m.
