Game Information

The Hoosier Lottery offers Mega Millions and Powerball, and is one of the select jurisdictions where you can purchase the Powerball Double Play option, which debuted in August 2021. Double Play is an add-on for your Powerball ticket that costs an extra $1. You get another shot at your numbers winning in a separate draw with cash prizes of up to $10 million.

Fans can also try their luck on a range of great local games.

Hoosier Lotto

Hoosier Lotto is only played in Indiana and has been a fan favorite since it was introduced in 1994. The game features a rolling jackpot that starts at $1 million and has no cap on how high it can climb. Each ticket also includes a multiplier that can skyrocket prizes below the jackpot by up to 10 times. The Plus add-on for $1 more offers its own drawing for more chances to win up to $1 million.

Daily 3

Daily 3 gives Hoosiers the chance to win up to $500 in two daily draws, Midday and Evening. A wide range of play types keeps things fun, and wagers start at just $0.50. Add the Superball option for extra chances to win.

Daily 4

Daily 4 offers prizes of up to $5,000 with a Midday and Evening draw every day. Choose from multiple exciting play types and a selection of wagers. The Superball add-on gives you more ways to make a winning selection.

Cash 5

Cash 5 is a daily draw game with a starting jackpot of $50,000. Tickets cost $1 each and players select five numbers from 1 to 41 or choose a Quick Pick to have numbers randomly generated for them. EZmatch is also available for those who'd like a chance to win right away! To win the Cash 5 top prize, players must match all five main numbers drawn.

Cash Pop

Cash Pop is a lottery where just one winning number, from 1 to 15, is selected in each draw. You have to select how much you want to wager for each number you pick - from $1 to $10. A prize value is then assigned to each number you play, and you receive that amount if you win. Draws take place five times a day.

Quick Draw

Quick Draw has a Midday and Evening draw every day offering prizes of up to $300,000 on a $1 play. Players can add Bullseye for the option to win more prizes, or try EZmatch for the chance at an instant win.


Want the chance to win a cash prize right after purchasing your Cash 5 or Quick Draw ticket? Pay an extra $1 and unlock EZmatch, which could net you up to $500 right there and then. Your ticket will be printed as normal, but there will be an extra set of numbers on the ticket. Each number will be assigned a monetary value and if that number matches one of the numbers you chose for the draw game, you'll win the cash! You can redeem it immediately and receive an exchange ticket for the drawing.

History of the Hoosier Lottery

The Hoosier Lottery was established in Indiana in November 1988 when voters overwhelmingly approved a lottery referendum. Sales of scratch-off games began in October 1989 and the show Hoosier Millionaire aired its first episode on October 28th, 1989 and would run successfully until November 2005. The state joined Lotto*America in October 1990 and began to sell Powerball tickets in April 1992. Mega Millions tickets went on sale in Indiana in January 2010.

Proceeds from the Hoosier Lottery are used to support pensions for police and firefighters across Indiana. Additional recipients of lottery funding include the Teachers' Retirement Fund and the Lottery Surplus Fund.
