Hoosier Lottery announces change to Hoosier Lotto® jackpot increases
INDIANAPOLIS (April 10, 2020) - The Hoosier Lottery today announced an upcoming change to Hoosier Lotto. Following the Saturday, April 11, 2020 drawing, the roll increments between jackpots will be based on a review of sales and set at a minimum amount of $100,000 per roll. Currently, Hoosier Lotto roll increases alternate between $200,000 and $300,000 per roll.
“Hoosier Lotto is Indiana’s hometown jackpot game and it is important to preserve the game for our players, retailers and beneficiaries,” said Hoosier Lottery Executive Director Sarah M. Taylor. “Recent decreases in sales due to the COVID-19 pandemic are forcing us to reassess the amount we’re able to increase the Hoosier Lotto jackpot between drawings. We have recently experienced changes to Powerball® and Mega Millions®, and we made the decision to move forward with adjustments to Hoosier Lotto as well.”
