For more information on all Fast Play games, go to https://wilottery.com/games/fast-play.

What is a Progressive Jackpot?

The Progressive Jackpot grows with the sale of each Fast Play ticket until a Progressive Jackpot-winning ticket is sold. The Progressive Jackpot starts at $10,000. A percentage of each sale is allocated toward the Progressive Jackpot fund. The price of each Fast Play game dictates the percentage of the Progressive Jackpot a player can win. Players can win 10% to 100% of the Progressive Jackpot depending upon the price of the winning ticket. For example, the 20X ($5) game will win 50% of the current Jackpot while 50X ($10) will win 100% of the current Jackpot.

What Fast Play games include the Progressive Jackpot?

All six Fast Play games have the one Progressive Jackpot. Players can win 10% to 100% of the Progressive Jackpot depending upon the price of the winning ticket.

Does each Fast Play game have its own Progressive Jackpot?

No. Combined sales of all Fast Play games contribute to one Progressive Jackpot.

What are the odds of winning the Progressive Jackpot?

Price Win/Share Odds
$1 10% of Jackpot 1:240,000
$2 20% of Jackpot 1:240,000

How do I find out what the current Fast Play Progressive Jackpot is?

Current estimated Fast Play Progressive Jackpot amounts are updated every five minutes on wilottery.com, Wisconsin Lottery vending machines, and on the Wisconsin Lottery player-facing display monitors at Lottery retail locations; the Wisconsin Lottery mobile app is updated when accessing a screen that displays the Fast Play jackpot. The current estimated Progressive Jackpot is also printed on every ticket.

How long do I have to cash a winning Fast Play ticket?

Fast Play tickets must be cashed within 180 days of the date the ticket was printed. This date appears on the front of the ticket.

I think the Progressive Jackpot amount on my ticket is different from the amount I saw on the Lottery website/mobile app/the display monitor a few minutes ago. Is that possible?

The actual Progressive Jackpot amount will change based on Fast Play ticket sales and jackpot wins at Lottery retailers throughout Wisconsin. Because Fast Play Progressive Jackpot amounts are updated every five minutes on the Lottery website, mobile app, vending machines, and display monitors, there may have been additional sales or a jackpot win during those minutes. The Jackpot amount on the ticket is the most accurate estimate of the Jackpot amount at any given time since it was updated by the gaming system at the exact time of purchase.

What is the legal age to purchase Wisconsin Lottery Tickets?

  • You may purchase tickets if you are 18 years or older. 

What is the difference between Cash Option and Annuity?

  • Cash option:
    For every dollar spent on a jackpot lotto game, a certain percentage is placed immediately into a cash pool. When you win the jackpot and choose the cash option, you will get the entire amount in the cash pool, minus taxes. 
  • Annuity:
    When you win the jackpot and choose the annuity option, the cash pool is used to buy government bonds that pay out over a 25-year period for Megabucks or over a 30-year period for Powerball and Mega Millions. You will receive a payment every year until the full annuity amount is paid out. Taxes are withheld from each payment. It is similar to how a savings bond works. A $100 savings bond costs the purchaser only $50 today. If the holder of the bond waits until maturity, the bond is then worth the entire $100.

Note: After presenting the winning ticket you have 60 days to decide on cash option or annuity. After 60 days have passed, if you have not made a decision, the payment automatically becomes an annuity.

Does Twice Daily Draws double the cost to play?

Twice daily draws does NOT double the cost to play but you do have to pay for each drawing. When you buy a ticket, you select which draws to play in (MIDDAY, EVENING, or BOTH) and you pay for each drawing you selected. For example, if you play 1 set of numbers in All or Nothing and select BOTH (MIDDAY and EVENING draw), your total ticket price is $4–which is $2 for 1 play in 2 drawings. You could also choose to play 1 set of numbers in just the All or Nothing Evening draw or just the All or Nothing MIDDAY draw. Then your total ticket price is $2.

For all details, visit wilottery.com/TwiceDailyDraws

What happens to tickets that are lost, stolen, or printed in error?

  • Only an original ticket (not a copy) can be validated and paid.
  • We recommend signing your tickets as soon as you purchase them. Wisconsin Lottery tickets are bearer instruments; whoever signs the back of the ticket is considered the rightful owner.
  • A Wisconsin Lottery ticket cannot be voided; once printed there is no way to cancel it.

With Twice Daily Draws, will my ticket automatically apply to BOTH drawings now?

No, not automatically. When you buy a ticket, you do have to select which draws to play in (MIDDAY, EVENING, or BOTH) and you do have to pay for each drawing you selected. For example, if you play 1 set of numbers in All or Nothing and select BOTH Midday and Evening draw, your total ticket price is $4–because it is $2 per play so, for two drawings (MIDDAY and EVENING) your total would be $4.

For all details, visit wilottery.com/TwiceDailyDraws

  • The value of unclaimed prizes is credited to the Wisconsin Lottery property tax relief fund.

How does the Megabucks jackpot work?

  • For every Megabucks ticket sold, a percentage of that $1 is placed into a jackpot prize pool.
  • The more tickets sold, the higher the cash option.
  • With Megabucks, the lottery automatically funds a starting cash option of $400,000 and an annuity of $1 million.

In some cases, the Megabucks annuity jackpot may stay the same or decrease. The annuity jackpot, funded by the cash pool available to purchase government bonds, can vary if there are changes in the overall financial markets or the U.S. government's bond rating. These changes can make it much more expensive to buy these long-term securities. So, even as the cash jackpot continues to grow, the estimated annuity jackpot may remain the same or decrease from one drawing to the next.

What happens to the remaining annuity payments if a winner dies before the payments are completed?

  • Upon the death of a prize winner, any prize money that has not been paid shall be paid to the prize winner's estate. (Wis. Stats. 565.30 (1).)

Winning tickets up to $100 can be redeemed as credits to purchase other Lottery tickets at the vending machines. No actual cash is dispensed by the machine.

Can players purchase tickets in the App?

No. Players cannot purchase lottery tickets directly from the mobile app, but they can create digital playslips in the app that can be used at Wisconsin Lottery retailers, instead of using paper playslips. (Note, paper playslips can still be used instead of the app.)

What do I do with a ticket that I redeemed on a vending machine?

The ticket is considered redeemed and can be thrown away. We recommend tearing the ticket in half so others know it has been redeemed.

What does the Wisconsin Lottery App do?

Players can use the app to scan their tickets to see if they've won, create digital playslips that can be scanned by retailers, save favorite numbers, explore hot and cold number trends for draw games, use the store locator to find authorized Wisconsin Lottery retailers, and more.

What types of devices can download the Wisconsin Lottery App and where can I find it?

The App is available to both iOS (e.g., iPhone) and Android users. Players can download the App from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Simply search for Wisconsin Lottery. Note, the app will not ask for you to enter your name or any other personal information.
