how to play powerball colorado

It’s Easy to Play

Pick Your Numbers

Select 6 out of 40 numbers. Use a Playslip to choose your numbers or check the QP (Quick Pick) box for randomly generated numbers. Or, simply ask your retailer for a Colorado Lotto+ Quick Pick!

Buy Your Ticket

Ticket buyers must be at least 18. Colorado Lotto+ tickets cost $2 and are available at most Colorado retailers. When the ticket is produced, you will get your numbers and a multiplier (2X, 3X, 4X, 5X). The jackpot starts at $1 million and grows. Any other winnings (not including the jackpot) will be multiplied by the multiplier amount shown on your ticket.

Lottery games may be purchased using a debit card where accepted by retailers (not all retailers accept debit cards). Lottery tickets can never be purchased with a credit card.

Add “Plus” for Another Chance to Win

For an extra $1 per play you can add the Plus option. The Colorado Lotto+ numbers you purchased by picking your own numbers or playing Quick Pick will be used for an additional drawing conducted immediately after the Colorado Lotto+ drawing. If all six of your numbers match the second set of numbers drawn, you’ll win a $250,000 Plus jackpot. Any other winnings (matching 3 up to 5 numbers and not including the 6 of 6 jackpot) will be multiplied by the multiplier amount shown on your ticket. The numbers drawn for both Colorado Lotto+ and the Plus option will be available after the drawing. Any wins from both the Colorado Lotto+ and Plus drawings will be combined.

Play Multiple Drawings

Purchase up to 13 weeks (26 drawings) in advance with Advance Play. Just check the Advance Play box on the Playslip or ask your retailer for it. You’ll play the same numbers for all drawings.

Check Your Winnings

Have winning numbers sent to your cell phone or email address: sign up for MyLottery. Winning numbers are also available from retailers, your local newspaper, on the late news on some television stations, and right here!

To play Lotto, select 6 out of 40 numbers, and check back on Wednesday and Saturday nights to see if you won!
