Lottery Odds And Statistics
The Colorado lottery runs on a common 6/42 matrix which means players must choose six numbers from a pool of 1 to 42. The state uses a Random Number Generator to select the six random lottery numbers. If all six numbers match that player is the big jackpot winner. The odds of winning the main prize are a very favorable 1 in 5.24 million which is much better than most state lottos. The odds of winning any prize in this lottery are only 1 in 35!
Lottery Security And Results
The state government oversees all lottery operations in Colorado. In addition, Colorado is a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association, the same group that runs the nationwide Powerball lotto game. The largest lottery jackpot in Colorado took place in March 1992 when a single ticket holder won $27 million. Over time the Colorado lottery has made over a hundred players instant millionaires!
The Colorado lottery started up in 1983 after the General Assembly agreed to approve a state-run lotto system. A few months later the Colorado Lottery became a division of the Colorado Department of Revenue. The main goal was to offer the chance to win big money while using the proceeds toward various social programs throughout the state. Recreation facilities, healthcare, schools, state parks and safety programs are just a few of the dozens of lottery proceed recipients. The first lottery took place on April 23, 1983 and it’s been a huge hit ever since.
The Colorado Lotto is the most popular game in the state. All Colorado lottery winnings can be awarded either in graduated annuity payments or a slightly-smaller lump sum.
