The cash continues to pile up in the Michigan Lottery's Lotto 47 jackpot, which now stands at $6.75 million. To win the jackpot, players must match all six of the numbers drawn.
If a player wins tonight's Lotto 47 jackpot, it would mark the sixth time the game's jackpot has been won in 2018. Lotto 47 jackpot winners have won more than $8.8 million in 2018.
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 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 until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
About 97 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to vendors and retailers. In the 2017 fiscal year, the Lottery's contribution to Michigan's public schools was a record $924.1M. Since it began in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $21B to support public education in Michigan.
