Sweet Million

When are the drawings?
Drawings are every Monday and Thursday at approximately 9:30 p.m. Winning numbers are randomly selected from a field of 40 under the observation of an independent auditing firm.

How Are Prizes Determined and Paid?
All prizes are cash prizes. Prize values are set so there can be multiple $1,000,000 winners for each Sweet Million drawing.*

Match 6 of 6 numbers and win a million dollars!
Match 5 of 6 numbers and win $500.
Match 4 of 6 numbers and win $40.
Match 3 of 6 numbers and win $3.


*NOTE: Prize values are predetermined, however, in the event there are more than 5 first prize winners, those winners will share $5,000,000 in proportion to the number of winners. Prize levels 2nd through 4th are also subject to be paid on a pari-mutual basis. 40% of game sales are allocated to prizes.
