How to Play

Lotto




 
LOTTO IS EASY TO PLAY!
Step 1 
PICK UP A LOTTO PLAYCARD
Go to any New York Lottery retailer and pick up a playcard with 10 game panels. Each panel shows squares numbered 1 through 59.
Step 2 
PICK 6 NUMBERS
Pick 6 numbers from 1 through 59.
Step 3 
USE A BLUE OR BLACK PEN OR PENCIL
Using a black pencil or a black or blue ballpoint pen (red ink will not be accepted), fill in your choice of any 6 of the 59 numbered squares in a game panel. Or save time by choosing Quick Pick and letting the computer randomly select numbers for you.
 
Step 4 
SELECT A WAGER AMOUNT
The minimum play is $1 for two (2) game panels. Or you can play up to $5 on the 10-playcard.
 
Step 5 
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CHOOSE YOUR PAYMENT OPTION AT TIME OF PURCHASE
If you win a jackpot, you will have up to sixty (60) days to choose either "Annuity Payments" or "Lump Sum Cash Value," from the date you claim your prize at the Lottery Customer Service Center.
 
Step 6 
GIVE YOUR PLAYCARD TO A NEW YORK LOTTERY RETAILER
Turn in your playcard to the retailer, and you'll receive a separate ticket for each playcard processed.
 
Step 7 
VERIFY YOUR TICKET
Check your ticket(s) to verify the numbers and the date printed are correct. LOTTO tickets cannot be cancelled.
 
 
BONUS NUMBER
In order to win the second prize, you must match at least 5 of the 6 numbers drawn plus the Bonus Number. The Bonus Number is the seventh number drawn and is used only for the 2ND prize level. The Bonus Number is not identified on your ticket as a separate number. The Bonus number is not used for the lower prize level payouts.
