Indiana - Hoosier Lotto Information

Indiana’s premier lottery is the Hoosier Lotto, which offers some of the best winning odds in the US with 1 out of 6 odds of taking home a prize.

Hoosier Lotto History

The Hoosier Lotto was previously known as the Lotto Cash, one of the first lotteries created in the state of Indiana. Lotto Cash was played by guessing a set amount of numbers from a guess range as opposed to scratch-offs and raffles. In 1994, the name was changed to the Hoosier Lotto, the guess range was expanded, and a fifth prize category added.

The state of Indiana uses parts of the lottery’s proceeds to fund charitable, communal, and government organizations such as the Build Indiana Fund, the Teachers Retirement Fund and the Police Officers’ and Firefighters Pension and Disability fund.

The largest jackpot in Hoosier Lotto’s history was a prize of $54 million won in 2007. Other notable jackpots include $34.5 million in 2011 and $34 million in 2012.

In 2016 the game’s rules were revised and the guess range was changed from 1-48 to 1-46. This improved the odds of winning Hoosier Lotto prizes.

To play the Indiana-Hoosier Lotto, players select 6/46 numbers.

Winning the Hoosier Lotto

The Hoosier Lotto has five prize categories, and players must successfully guess 6 numbers from a guess range of 1- 46 to win the jackpot. There is a 25% federal tax on all prizes over $5,000, a 3.5% state tax on all prizes over $1,200. The odds of winning any prize in a Hoosier lottery draw are incredible.

Hoosier Lotto Anecdotes

Hoosier - The Hoosier Lotto takes its name from the colloquialism, ‘Hoosier’ used to refer to Indiana State residents. The term ‘Hoosier’ can be traced back to meaning ‘hills-men’ or man of the ‘highlands’ and is a term Indianans use proudly.

Not Too Late - In February 2010, all of Indiana was wondering why no one had come forward to claim the $2.5 million which had been drawn more than 170 days prior (the expiration time to claim winning tickets is 180 days). Just a few days before it expired, Lori White began pestering her husband Eric to check old lottery tickets online only to discover they were the winners.

Ride the Lucky Train - A group of 15 Amtrak employees won’t need to ride the railroad anymore. In November 2011, a group of co-workers won the $34.5 million jackpot after having collectively played the Hoosier lotto for six years!
