INDIANAPOLIS – A new Hoosier Lottery draw game is on sale now!

Poker Lotto went on sale at retailers around the state Sunday, Aug. 25. The new game offers two ways to win; instantly up to $5,000 with one of nine poker hands, and up to $250,000 by matching symbols drawn in the evening drawing.

Drawings are nightly at 10:50 p.m. (Eastern). Poker Lotto tickets cost $2 per play.

Poker Lotto is unique because it uses 52 traditional playing card symbols instead of numbers. The game also combines the excitement associated with instant win games with the suspense of nightly draw games.

Just say “Deal me in!” To purchase, players may simply ask a Hoosier Lottery retail associate for Poker Lotto in the same way they would purchase Powerball, Hoosier Lotto or any other Hoosier Lottery draw game.

All Poker Lotto tickets are quick picks because of the instant win element.

Players win from $2 to $5,000 automatically if their ticket contains a pair of Jacks or better, two pair, three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush or royal flush.

Poker Lotto tickets that match two to five cards in the evening drawing win prizes from $2 to $250,000.

The Hoosier Lottery reminds all players to play responsibly. Must be 18 or older to play. Gambling Addiction Referral Line: 800-994-8448.
