The cash continues to pile up in the Michigan Lottery’s Lotto 47 jackpot, with $8.3 million up for grabs tonight. To win the jackpot, players must match all six of the numbers drawn.
If a player wins tonight’s Lotto 47 jackpot, it would be the largest Lotto 47 jackpot won in 2016. In January, a lucky player won a $4.2 million Lotto 47 jackpot with a ticket bought in Custer. The Lotto 47 jackpot has been won eight times in 2016 with the jackpots totaling more than $14.1 million.
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.
