How to Play
You can purchase tickets for Lotto 47 online or from authorised retailers across the state of Michigan for $1 per entry.
EZmatch is an instant-win add-on to the main Lotto 47 game. When you play EZmatch, five random EZmatch numbers will be printed on your Lotto 47 ticket, each with a cash value between $2 and $500. If any of the numbers you chose for the main Lotto 47 drawing match the EZmatch numbers on your ticket, you win the corresponding cash prize. EZmatch costs an additional $1 per entry.

Prizes and Odds
There are four prize tiers available in Lotto 47, and you can win by matching three or more numbers on your ticket. If no-one matches all six numbers to win the jackpot in any given game, it will roll over, increasing in value for the next draw. The jackpot will continue to roll over until it is won. The prizes available and odds of winning in each tier are below:
|Match 6 of 6||1: 10,737,573||Jackpot|
|Match 5 of 6||1: 43,649||$2,500|
|Match 4 of 6||1: 873||$100|
|Match 3 of 6||1: 50||$5|
|Overall odds of Winning: 1 in 47|
Double Play is a supplementary game in which an extra set of winning numbers is drawn. You use the same numbers for Double Play as you do for the main draw, and you can win prizes by matching three or more of them. The Double Play draw takes place immediately after the main game and it also uses a pool of balls numbered from 1 to 47, so the same number can appear in both draws. The $1.5 million jackpot can be won by matching all six numbers between 1 and 47, and all other prizes amounts are doubled from the main draw. Jackpot winners can opt for annuity payments over a 30 year period or a one-off lump sum.
The odds of winning in Double Play are the same as Lotto 47, and the payouts on offer are below:
|Match 6 of 6||$1.5 million|
|Match 5 of 6||$5,000|
|Match 4 of 6||$200|
|Match 3 of 6||$10|
When you play EZmatch, five random EZmatch numbers will be printed on your Lotto 47 ticket, each with a cash value between $2 and $500. If any of the numbers you chose for the main Lotto 47 drawing match the EZmatch numbers on your ticket, you win the corresponding cash prize.
There are 11 prize tiers, shown below alongside the odds of winning:
