Saturday night's Colorado Lotto+ jackpot is taking center stage.
The upcoming $19.3 million Colorado Lotto+ jackpot is the 3rd-largest jackpot in the game's history.
The run-up to the huge jackpot began in March 2021 and has been rolling since then with twice-weekly drawings. The eight-figure jackpot has not been this huge since 1992.
Twenty-nine years ago, that Lotto jackpot run resulted in the largest Lotto jackpot since the Colorado Lottery was created, and $27 million was won by Boulder college student Kim Walker. To date, Lotto and Colorado Lotto+ have created 445 millionaires since the original game launched in 1989.
To play Colorado Lotto+ players choose 6 out of 40 numbers or do a Colorado Lotto+ Quick Pick. Tickets cost $2, and each ticket includes a variable multiplier (2X, 3X, 4X, 5X). Players can also choose to play "Plus" for an extra $1 and be part of a second drawing using the same numbers. The drawings are conducted every Wednesday and Saturday night at the Colorado Lottery headquarters in Pueblo.
