If a player wins Saturday’s Lotto 47 jackpot, it would mark the fourth time the game’s jackpot has been won in 2015.
In January, the Lotto 47 jackpot was won twice, with the big wins coming just a week apart. In July, a lucky Otsego County man won a $13.1 million Lotto 47 jackpot.
Each Lotto 47 play is only $1. Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot starting at $1 million and that grows until someone wins it. For an additional $1 per game, players may add EZMatch to their ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly. Lotto 47 drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday at 7:29 p.m. Tickets may be purchased until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
