Cash keeps piling up in the Michigan Lottery’s Lotto 47 jackpot, which now stands at a record $27.1 million.
The largest Lotto 47 prize ever won was a $23.6 million jackpot. That jackpot was won by a Macomb County player on March 1, 2008.
Tickets for Wednesday’s drawing may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com, or at Lottery retailers across the state. Players who choose to visit a Lottery retailer are asked to follow safety precautions, including wearing a mask and observing social distancing guidelines.
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 play, Double Play may be added to a Lotto 47 ticket, giving players a second chance to win up to $1.5 million in the nightly Double Play drawing. 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 at a retailer or online at MichiganLottery.com until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
