Colorado Lotto History

The Colorado Lotto was founded by the state in January, 1989. From the beginning, the lottery used the same 6/42 structure that it still employs today. In July 1990, due to the success and wide spread popularity of the lottery, the Colorado Lotto added a Wednesday draw to accompany its Saturday live draw. The lottery saw its biggest jackpot pay-out in 1992, for a top prize of $27 million.

Winning the Colorado Lotto

To win the Colorado Lotto jackpot, players must successfully match 6 numbers to the 6/42 numbers selected by lottery officials. Players who match at least 3 of the 6 number drawn are awarded one of the three secondary prize categories. All jackpots are taxed at 34% and paid out in a single cash payment or annual instalments.

The Colorado Lotto’s exceptional winning odds are among the highest amongst US state lotteries. Colorado Lotto’s 100th millionaire was the lottery's biggest jackpot winner to date. In March 1992, this Colorado native walked away with a $27 million jackpot.
