Lottery Odds And Statistics
Indiana’s Hoosier Lottery operates on a 6/48 matrix which means players choose six numbers from 1 to 48. If a player is able to match all six numbers correctly they are the big million dollar winner. The odds of winning the huge jackpot are 1 in 12.27 million. The odds of winning a fourth tier prize in the Hoosier Lotto are only 1 in 53, but it gets even better. Since the Hoosier Lotto pays out on matching just two numbers the odds of winning any prize in the game are an amazing 1 in 7!
Lottery Security And Results
The Hoosier Lottery is operated by the state of Indiana and monitored by an independent nationwide lottery monitoring firm. The largest jackpot ever awarded was on November 7, 2007. A man from East Chicago won $54.5 million by taking the cash option instead of the annuity. As with most state lotteries the Hoosier Lotto rolls over each time a jackpot hasn’t been awarded.
In November 1988 the state residents voted by a majority in favor of creating a state lottery system. It was passed into law in May of the following year and the first tickets were sold Friday, October 13th, 1989. Lottery proceeds go toward pension and disability funds for retired Hoosier police officers and firefighters.
