Bust The Myths

Like mountain biking, fishing, kayaking or any other great Colorado activity, the Lottery is a form of entertainment. Regular players set a budget aside so they can freely indulge in the wonder and excitement of a possible win. With the implementation of limits to keep your play safe and responsible, you can relax and have worry-free fun.

Sometimes, players develop ideas about lottery play that just aren’t true. They might exceed their own budget because they believe they’re due up for a win, form superstitious rituals, or look to a win to fix a personal problem. We’re here to bust the myths and keep the game fun.
