MatchPlay Game Proving to be Colorado Lottery’s Best Kept Secret

Denver, CO, January 11, 2011 –The MatchPlay jackpot has now grown to an estimated $612,806 for tonight’s drawing. This will be the largest MatchPlay jackpot since Colorado introduced the game in February of 2010.

To win the jackpot you must match 6 numbers across any one straight line. Ways to Win: Line play (match 3, 4, 5 or 6 numbers in one straight line across any of the three lines) and Combined play (match 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10+ numbers in any combination from all three lines). The overall odds of winning MatchPlay are 1 in 6.

Jackpots start at $100,000 and increase by a minimum of $10,000 per draw until it is hit. Drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday nights at approximately 7:40 p.m.
