The Idaho Pack

There’s one thing you can always count on: Idahoans love all things Idaho.  From the great outdoors to the arts, from an upbeat lifestyle of the urban landscape to the quiet tranquility of a pristine mountain lake, Idaho has something for everyone.  To celebrate our great State, the Idaho Lottery is offering you the opportunity to play Idaho’s very own Draw Games in one quick, easy to play bundle for just $5.  You will receive tickets good for the next draw for each of Idaho’s regular Draw Games including the growing jackpot game Idaho Cash, the pre-determined jackpot game Weekly Grand, and the next draw for the twice-daily Pick 3 Sum it up! game.

Be sure to ask for a $5 Idaho Pack when you visit your favorite store.

Here’s what each game as to offer players:

$1 IDAHO CASH

This is an Idaho-only Draw Game with a jackpot prize that begins at $20,000 and continues to grow until there is a winner.  Idaho Cash is played in similar fashion to other jackpot Draw Games. You select five numbers from 1 to 45. You receive two plays for $1. In the game, players try to match all five numbers correctly to win the jackpot prize. You may select your own numbers or ask for a quick pick. Drawings are held on Wednesday and Saturday nights, just like Powerball, Weekly Grand, and Lotto America. You may purchase tickets until 7:55 p.m. Mountain Time on the night of the draw.

In addition to the jackpot prize, there are other prizes in the game for matching winning numbers.

If the jackpot is not won, prize funds will be added to the next drawing’s jackpot prize. If there is more than one jackpot winner for a draw, the jackpot prize will be divided equally among multiple winners. The jackpot prize is paid in a single lump-sum, cash payment.

Since launching in February 2017, there have been five jackpot winners on Idaho Cash. The average jackpot win is $111,800 with the record set at $147,000.

$2 WEEKLY GRAND

Weekly Grand is a traditional style Draw Game with a set jackpot prize of $52,000 paid out as $1,000 per week, every week for a year after withholding taxes are paid by the Idaho Lottery. In the game, you try to match 5 numbers correctly out of a pool of 32 numbers. Each play is $2. Drawings are held on Wednesday and Saturday nights, just like Powerball, Idaho Cash, and Lotto America. You may purchase tickets until 7:55 p.m. Mountain Time on the night of the draw.

In addition to the jackpot prize, there are other prizes in the game for matching winning numbers.

Weekly Grand also has an added bonus feature.  All non-winning tickets are eligible for entry into the game’s second chance prize of $100 a week, every week for an entire year after withholding taxes are already paid by the Idaho Lottery.  This prize is drawn once monthly.

Since this game debuted in August 2011, there have been 37 jackpot winners and 82 second-chance winners.

$2 PICK 3 with SUM IT UP!

Idaho’s favorite twice daily game got an extra winning twist at the end of January 2016 when it added a new feature called Sum it up! for players to win extra cash.

The $2 Pick 3 Sum it up! in the bundle gives you a $1 Exact/Any Order 6-way quick pick with the $1 Sum it up! feature.  The time when you purchase the bundle will determine which Pick 3 draw the ticket is eligible for.  Exact/Any Order means if your numbers match the numbers drawn in the exact order, in any order, you win.

The Sum it up! feature is another way for you to win, even if your numbers on their ticket do not match the numbers for the draw.  If the sum of your Pick 3 numbers is the same as the sum of the three single-digit numbers drawn, you win.  For example, if your numbers are 1-2-3 your Sum it up! number for that draw is 6.  If the sum of the three numbers drawn also equals 6 you win (say, 0-1-5 or 2-2-2), whether you match your numbers or not.

Here is a breakdown of the prizes available for Sum it up!

These prizes may be in addition to the regular prizes players won by playing Idaho Pick 3.  Sum it up! is available for both the day and evening draws of Idaho Pick 3.
