Poker Lotto offers players two great games in every hand: a chance to win instantly right in the store and walk out with a cash prize between $2 and $500; plus a nightly lotto drawing with prizes ranging from $3 to the grand prize of $100,000! Players should keep in mind that the nightly drawing is an entirely separate game from the instant-win game played when they purchase a ticket. Winning the instant-win game is based on whether they are dealt a winning poker hand. The nightly drawing is exclusively a matching game. Cards from the nightly drawing are not used to form a winning poker hand. To win the nightly drawing, a player must match two or more cards with the cards drawn.
A total of 38,344 players won more than $260,000 in prizes from the November 13 Poker Lotto game. Of that amount the nightly drawing paid out over $147,000, with prize amounts ranging from $3 to the $100,000 jackpot.
