“Did I win a million dollars?” he asked.

play options

It's always great to have options, so make sure to keep the following in mind when you purchase your $1,000,000 Money Ball ticket: 

  • REPEAT PLAYS OPTION:  Love those numbers so much you want them on more than one ticket? Mark this box on your playslip to repeat your selection (same numbers, same draw date) for more than one ticket.  You will be prompted to provide your choice.  This option is not available on Lottery vending machines. 
  • FUTURE PLAY OPTION:  Thinking ahead to a special date?   Mark this box to buy a ticket for one future draw date.  With this option, you can select one future draw, excluding the current draw.  If you select the MORE box to play beyond the next week, you will be prompted to provide the future date you want to play (it must be a Wednesday or Saturday)
  • MULTI DRAW OPTION:   Want to play the same numbers for more than one draw on a single ticket? Well, you can!  To play consecutive draws, including the current draw, simply mark the multi-draw option box on your playslip.  If you select the 8+ box to play 8 or more, you will be prompted to provide your choice.  Your ticket price will multiply by this number.
