Based in the state capital of Indianapolis, the Hoosier Lottery is Indiana's official state lottery, named after the state's own nickname. State legislators have established lotteries to fund public works and development projects for local communities. The first official scratch-off game, Hoosier Millionaire, launched in October 1989, followed by the debut of the first online game, Lotto Cash, in April 1990. Today, the Hoosier Lottery features draw games like the Hoosier Lotto, Poker Lotto, Powerball, Cash 5, and Mega Millions, along with scratch-off ticket lotteries and mobile games for a variety of play options.

Indiana's official state lottery, the Hoosier Lottery, conducts several lottery drawings throughout the week for our in-house draw games. The Hoosier Lottery draws winning numbers daily for the Daily 3, Daily 4, Cash 5, and Quick Draw lottery games. For the Hoosier Lotto, we hold drawings on Wednesdays and Saturdays. For multi-state lottery games, Cash4Life conducts daily drawings, Mega Millions draws numbers on Tuesdays and Fridays, and Powerball draws on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
The price of Hoosier Lottery tickets varies based on the game you want to participate in. You can purchase Cash 5 or Quick Draw tickets for $1. Hoosier Lotto, Cash4Life, Mega Millions, and Powerball tickets are $2. Daily 3 and Daily 4 ticket prices depend on your desired wager of either $0.50, $1, $2, $5, or $10.
No. Lottery ticket purchases are only available at participating retailers. You can choose your lottery numbers using paper playslips or through digital playslips through the Hoosier Lottery app on your phone. With the app, you can choose your numbers, but you'll still need to go to a retailer to validate your picks and get your tickets.
A playslip is a paper or digital form where you select your desired numbers for a lottery draw. For paper playslips, shade in the boxes that represent your number choices. Using digital playslips through the Hoosier Lottery app allows you to select your numbers with a few clicks. At select Hoosier Lottery retailers, you may recite your numbers to retailer personnel to receive your ticket without using a paper playslip.
You can download the Hoosier Lottery app on your iPhone or Android device through your app store.
